I am wondering which bank people in the UK pay their Amazon cheque into. Don't ordinary high street banks take a slice before converting it back into ££££.
I use santander but only get charged around five pound for this service. But you can change your payment in your account settings on Amazon to pay me by cheque. this way it doesn't cost you a penny.
I pay my US dollars cheque into santander and it costs a flat fee of £10 per international cheque regardless of the amount of the cheque (so it's good to have a relatively high payment threshold). The first one I paid in took about 4/5 weeks to clear, the following ones 6 days.
Don't know what other banks are like regarding fees for international cheques?
thanks Susana- was thinking about Citibank not sure if you have heard of them or not. An American bank.
Yeah, Mark Knowles mentioned using citibank and having a dollar account. I've no idea how it works though in terms of withdrawals in pounds and what kind of fees there might be. It's something I keep meaning to check out and haven't got around to yet
I believe that Mark has set up a $ account with Citibank, so there is no charge to cash a $ cheque.
But I have no idea what he does from there, into changing it into his native currency (I believe he lives in France, which uses the Euro).
I just put mine in one of my HSBC accounts. Like Susana, my first one took about five days, now they clear a day later. I'm presuming that Amazon's financial status/set-up is trusted. It costs £9 to switch currencies.

It's been about 3 days or so since I saw anything but "pending" on my Amazon account. Anybody else? I know the team is busy with the merger, but it would be nice if they managed to keep our Amazon stats updated, too.

We are going to increase Amazon earnings for most of you! Amazon is becoming part of the HP Earnings program. In early November folks will have the opportunity to switch to get paid their Amazon earnings through the HP Earnings program. For new Hubbers, this will greatly simplify...

Great news. I just had an email saying that international earnings can now be paid by direct credit to a local bank account. Yay! I hold off claiming mine because of the extortionate charges of paying in a foreign currency cheque.Here's the email..."We have good news to share. You can now...

I am wondering if anybody else has noticed a good sized drop in Amazon earnings this month. I'm usually at 3 figure per month, but this month it's possible I won't even make payout. Something doesn't seem right here. Anybody?

We have another thread connected to this, but no-one from the staff side has responded. The recent changes in the structure of Amazon commission seem to have had a detrimental affect. While the number of sales has not decreased, earnings have halved this month.89 shipped sales (103 total sales so...

So how is everyone's earnings from Amazon going for December? I'm up to $134.00 already and sold 16 items yesterday. I will beat last month no problem.I'm hoping the next few weeks has a lot of last minute shoppers, and I think that will happen. How about you?
