Question About Getting Paid From Amazon

I've sold some things on Amazon over the past month. I think I read somewhere they dispurse funds in to your checking account about every 2 weeks.

I noticed on the seller's account page there's a "Request Disbursement" option. Does that mean you can get the money sooner? Anyone know? Just wondering how that works since Half.com never had that option.

I believe only your initial payment disbursement takes more time. After that, you are able to get your money sooner or just leave it at the regular 2 week interval they have set up. If you change your bank account information, the process probably starts over again.

Yeah it automatically will do it every 2 weeks, but you can request it whenever you get paid if you want via your account tab on there.

I think you can basically do it once a day.

The 2 week intervals don't seem to move though based on manual disbursement.

For example, if my automatic disbursement is set to go on the 20th, and I make a manual disbursement on the 18th, it will still automatically disburse whatever is in your account on the 20th - that's been my experience.

Yep, you can only request a deposit once a day.

I signed up not too long ago, and I didn't have to wait two weeks even though I had never sold on there before. Does that only apply to people who are totally new to Amazon? I've had an Amazon account for a really long time, but that's only been for buying things until here recently.

I love selling on Amazon btw, even though their fees are a bit crazy.

Speaking of requesting disbursements, I've been trying to do just that since yesterday but it tell me "The disbursement request failed due to technical difficulties. Please try again later." Has anybody else been having problems?
