How do I Change My Bank Details?
AbeBooks uses electronic fund transfers (EFT) to make payments for your AbeBooks orders directly into your bank account. AbeBooks supports making payments by EFT based on your country of domicile. AbeBooks does not pay sellers by check or by monthly wire transfer.
When updating your banking details, please have the following information available depending on your country:
For sellers under the North American Agreement:
For sellers under to the European Agreement:
If you are unsure which Agreement applies to you, select [View Seller Agreement] in the My Personal Information section of your Members Menu.
To add or update your banking information:
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.
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 Missing, out-of-date, or incorrect information will result in failed EFT transfers, resulting in delayed payments for you.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 seller’s bank account.
US Bank Account Requirement
Sellers in certain non-US jurisdictions may be required to provide a US bank account for their AbeBooks payments as of June 30th, 2018.
Before you can enter US bank account information into your AbeBooks account, you must complete a W-8BEN tax form.
If you are unable to open a US bank account in your location, there are third-party payment solutions, such as Payoneer or WorldFirst, which may be able to provide you with a US Bank account to use for disbursement from your AbeBooks account.
