Do Foreign Authors Need a U.S. Bank Account?

Hi Angela

I’m very interested in your POD services. I know you know what you’re doing. One question, Amazon requires a US bank account for Kindle publishers. What happens with your POD? Do you manage the finances? I’m in Australia, so getting a US bank account would be a challenge.

Many thanks.

At, we do work with Australian authors now as our printer recently opened a facility in Australia.

Also, for Kindle sales, Amazon pays us directly and we then send payments to the authors. We do NOT require our authors to have a U.S. address. You can read more about Booklocker’s Ebook Conversion and Distribution Service HERE.
