    I just started making some good money with AMZ and it seems they dont want to pay me until 3 months after the fact.
    Is there a way to get paid sooner? Like if I were to go with a AMZ gift cert, is that a sooner payment? I could always sell that.....

    You should be able to be paid every two weeks, and then after that request a payment daily. Did you get your account limited somehow? That's what happened to me. Try calling customer support. Amazon has the best of any company in the US, hands down.

    Sorry buddy, but there's no faster way to get paid by Amz as far as I know, GC, check or direct deposit payment all sent out around the same time every month, 2 months after the month in which it was earned.

    Payments sent out in April will be February earnings and anything you earn in April, will be paid around the last week in June unless they make changes to their payment schedule too.

    Of course direct deposit gets to your bank account faster than a mailed check would but either would still be paid on the same schedule.

    No it's not limited, it's just that I have not BEEN making a lot of money...... just started:

    Yep, that's what the TOS said. I was afraid of that. I figured they would pay you faster if (by way of gift cert), they knew they would in one way or another, get their money right back. Damn, two months to get paid for last month.

    EVEN THE FUCKING GOVERNMENT IS FASTER THEN THAT with payments!:smashfrea Now that is bad......

    echaz and free,
    I have never gotten paid every 2 weeks. According to Amz US Operating agreement,

    HTML:
    Approximately 60 days following the end of each calendar month, we will either (a) send you a check for the referral fees earned, (b) send you a gift card good for purchase of Products through the Amazon.com site, subject to our standard terms or conditions, or (c) directly deposit the referral fees earned into your bank account (if you want us to use this method of payment, please note that you will have to provide us with the name of your bank, the bank account type, the 9-digit routing number/ABA number, the account number and the primary account holder name as it appears on the bank account). If you select payment via Amazon.com site gift card or direct deposit, we will accrue and withhold referral fees until the total amount due is at least $10.00. If you select payment via check, we will accrue and withhold referral fees until the total amount due is at least $100.00.

    so you can get paid every 2 weeks ? do you need take 1 net60 payment before that ? and do you need take DD as payment ?

    Might start handing out some cookies for them, i heard it increases sales

    I found that working "normally" with AMZ to be a total waste of time. Cookie Stuffing with them on the other hand is a very different story.... I am banking...... (and if AMZ is looking, I was just joking)

    are you drunk? amazon pays out once a month for commissions earned from two months ago...

    i.e. january commissions will be paid out at the end of March.

    there is no way of speeding this up. you have to wait your 2 months like every other tom, dick, and harry.

    The confusion here is Amazon Affil Accts vs Amazon Seller Accounts. If you are an Amazon seller, you can get paid every 2 weeks at the beginning and then on a daily basis.

    "pays out once a month for commissions earned from two months ago" refers to Amazon Affil Accts.
