To add or update your banking information:

  1. Sign on to your AbeBooks account with your email address and password.
  2. Click [My Banking Information] in the My Payments section of the Menu.
  3. Select a location from the Bank Country list. Type the bank routing number, your account number, and select the appropriate option from the Account Type list.
  4. Note that only the last 3 digits of your previously-saved account number will be displayed in the ‘Bank Account Number on File’ field. In order to save changes to any field on the page, you will need to re-enter your full account number in the ‘Bank Account Number’ field. If you have a new account number, enter that number in the field.

  5. If your AbeBooks account address is a P.O. box, please enter YOUR (not your bank’s) physical address in the form at the bottom of the screen.
  6. Enter your password in the ‘Confirm AbeBooks Password’ field.
  7. Click the [Add Bank Details] button.

Please ensure that your banking information is correct and kept up-to-date. AbeBooks cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions. Missing, out-of-date, or incorrect information will result in failed EFT transfers, resulting in delayed payments for you.

EFT can only be used to deposit funds; AbeBooks cannot remove money from a bookseller’s bank account without their permission.
