Payments for Global Accounts

When opening a new Amazon seller account in a new marketplace, there are several ways you can set up your account to get paid. You can use one of the following methods:

  • Use a bank account in the marketplace where you want to list.
  • Use Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers.
  • Use a third-party currency conversion service.

Use a bank account in the marketplace

If you prefer to maintain a high level of control over your financial accounts, you can open a bank account in the country where you want to sell. This is typically a more complex process, as you may need to create a legal business entity in that country. So, consult your legal, tax, and banking advisors.

Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers

If you'd prefer not to open an account in the country of another Amazon marketplace, you have the option of using Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers. With Currency Converter, you can be paid directly in your local bank account in local currency, provided you have a bank account in a country supported by Amazon. Regardless of the country in which you reside, you may only receive payment to a bank account in a country and currency supported by Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers.

How Currency Converter Works

When you enter a bank account that operates with a different currency from that of the marketplace in which you're selling, you must accept the terms and conditions of the Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers in order to receive payment to that bank account. Every disbursement will automatically be transferred to your local bank, in your local currency. If you enter new bank account details, you must accept the Amazon Currency Converter terms and conditions again.

Note: If your bank is not based in one of the countries supported by Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers, Amazon will not be able to disburse payments to your bank account. You will need to open a bank account in one of the countries supported by Amazon -either a bank account in one of the countries where Amazon has a marketplace or a bank account in a country supported by Currency Converter.

How to start using the Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers

Once you have created a seller account, follow these steps to start using the Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers:


  1. On the Settings menu, click Account Info.
