How often do you get paid with KDP?

If you’re a self-published author using Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform, you’ll be happy to know that you can get paid on a regular basis. KDP pays royalties to authors every month, typically within 60 days after the end of the month in which the sale was reported. For those who use the Expanded Distribution option, payments are made 90 days after the end of the month.

Once you’ve reached the minimum threshold for payment, you can expect to receive your royalties via direct deposit. This process usually takes 1-5 business days from the payment date to show up in your bank account.

KDP also offers authors the option to be paid via check, though this method is not recommended as it can take up to three weeks for the check to arrive. Furthermore, checks must be deposited in a U.S. bank account, so if you’re located outside of the U.S., this payment option may not be available to you.

Overall, KDP is a great platform for self-published authors to make money from their work. With regular payments every month, authors can rest assured that they will be compensated for their efforts.
