The Statements tab allows you to view current and past statements for each weekly statement period. It shows your account balance at the start of the statement period, the impact of transactions during the statement period (orders, refunds, fees, etc.), and the balance at the end of the statement period. The balance will show whether AbeBooks pays you, you owe AbeBooks, or the balance is carried forward.

AbeBooks statement periods are one week in length from Friday to Friday each week. They begin Friday morning Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) and finish the following Friday morning (PDT). A statement is generated for your account for each statement period.

Monthly subscription fees are applied to your account on the 1st of every month. At the end of each statement period, AbeBooks disburses any balance owing to you. If, at the end of a statement period, you have a balance owing to AbeBooks, the amount owing is carried forward to the next statement period except for the last statement of the month. (For example, the last statement for May is the last statement whose statement period starts in May). If you have a balance owing on the last statement of the month, your balancing owing becomes due and your on file payment method is charged to pay the balance. We recommend that all sellers keep up to date payment information on file so that their account does not become overdue.
