Hello Amazon Seller,

And goodbye 2020. If only it meant that at midnight the world suddenly went back to "normal". But unfortunately, life is not that magical. The pandemic was one of those events that affected everyone in one way or another. It is such a confusing thing to wrap our heads around. The past year changed so much about our lives.
Life goes on, as they say. It is time to look ahead. And we each have to find a way to survive and thrive. Selling on Amazon is not a bad way to go. Sales online have increased dramatically and now people who never ordered online before have made it a habit. Not everyone is brave enough to sell on Amazon, but we are here to help you find the resources you including books, events, courses, software, mentors, tools, prep centers, and more.

Wishing you a very healthy, happy, and peaceful New Year in 2021! Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your growth this year. As we head into the new year with high hopes for a better tomorrow, we are sending you our warmest wishes and hope that all your resolutions come true.

How Amazon Payouts and Unavailable Balances Actually Work

As an Amazon seller, getting access to your money can be a frustrating experience. It’s normal for sellers to wait at least 14 days to get paid. If Amazon decides to hold back your money for even longer, it puts you in a tight spot with cash flow. It’s frustrating not knowing when your hard-earned payouts are going to hit your bank account.

Have you ever wondered why there’s a 14-day delay in the first place? Why do you sometimes have to wait even longer than two weeks for payment?

To help you answer these questions (and more), Payability has put together the definitive guide on understanding how Amazon pays its sellers. They cover Amazon’s payment terms, when and how you’ll actually get paid, how you can initiate early payments, what your cash flow options are, and more.

It was an eye-opener for us.
