When will I be paid for my Amazon photo book sales?

This article explains the payment schedule for profits from photo books sold via our Blurb to Amazon program. If you're selling a trade book on Amazon see our Global Retail Network payment information.

Sales that take place via Amazon show as pending in your monthly sales data for up to 60 days from the date of the sale.

This 60 day period accommodates Amazon's return policy. If your book is returned within that time period then the pending sale will be removed from your list of sales.

After that 60 day period is over, Amazon sales move from pending to completed.

Once your Amazon sales move to completed a payment will be processed and sent to you within 15–45 days after the close of the month, if you meet the minimum payment threshold. Otherwise your profits will roll over to the next month.
