Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers is an optional service that allows Amazon sellers to receive the proceeds of their earnings into their local bank account if that account is located in a different country or region from the marketplace on which they are selling.
Follow the same steps as for a bank located in the country or region of the Amazon marketplace that you are selling on.
When you enter a US bank account, you must accept the terms and conditions for using Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers to receive payment to that bank account. Your funds will be transferred automatically to your US bank account in US dollars.
No. Your payments may be delayed by a few minutes, but you should receive your funds into your bank account on the same date as you did with your Canadian bank account.
Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers currently supports these countries/regions and currencies.
If you have entered a US bank account and have a positive balance in your seller account, you can view the applicable exchange rate for transfers to your bank account by clicking the View Exchange Rate button on the Payments page. The applicable exchange rate includes all fees and charges related to your use of Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers.
The exchange rates you see in newspapers or other print media are generally wholesale or inter-bank rates. Amazon works to ensure our sellers receive a competitive exchange rate.
Refunds to buyers on Amazon.ca are made in the website currency (i.e. Canadian dollars) and as such are not subject to any exchange rate fluctuations. However, it is possible that a card issuer or bank may apply a new exchange rate and a conversion fee to the refund if a non-Canadian credit/debit card was used for the purchase and the refund was made to that card. Buyers may contact us when this happens, and we advise them to contact their card issuer or bank for an explanation of the exchange rate and any charge applied to the refund.
No, you do not need a Canadian-based credit card, billing address and phone number to register. You can register to sell on Amazon.ca if you are a resident in one of the many accepted seller registration countries/regions. Please note that your credit card must be able to accept international charges.
Amazon is not in a position to provide advice or comment about your tax obligations. Please contact your tax adviser with questions about your specific circumstances.
If you add or change your bank account information, fund transfers to that bank account may be delayed up to 14 days.
No. All transaction and reporting information in your seller account will be displayed in Canadian dollars. Only fund transfer amounts will be shown in US dollars for sellers who use Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers.
The Estimated Exchange Rate is used to calculate an estimated amount of each pending Disbursement and/or Reverse Transaction in Your Bank Location Currency. The Estimated Exchange Rate is provided to us by our bank service provider at the time we estimate a pending Disbursement and/or Reverse Transaction. Because exchange rates fluctuate frequently, when we process your Disbursement and/or Reverse Transaction, our bank service provider might apply an exchange rate that differs from the estimated exchange rate. We try to ensure that we receive a competitive exchange rate from our bank service provider to facilitate Disbursements and/or Reverse Transactions in Your Bank Location Currency.
