Keyword: the Extras Podcast Episode 033 – Amazon Unavailable Balances – What are They and How to Deal with Them? With Alex Sklar, Payability

Amazon pays sellers every two weeks based on when they started selling, but these payments are rarely the full amount that the seller sold in the last two weeks. Amazon actually holds onto some of the money. They call it, “unavailable balances.”

Alex Sklar with Payability is joining us again to discuss unavailable balances, what they are, how to deal with them, and how to avoid them.

Disclaimer: Payability does not claim to have any insider information on the processes Amazon uses to decide when to release or not to release a payment. This is proprietary information unique to Amazon. The following is based on publicly available information and trends we have observed.
