How do I switch my deposit method to my Viably account in Amazon Seller Central?

This article reviews how to contact Amazon Seller Support to make Viably your payout account.

When switching your deposit method on Amazon Seller Central, there are several steps you will need to take to reduce the risk of Amazon identifying this change as unauthorized activity. We highly recommend making this change at least 3 days (as Amazon's review of your new deposit account may take up to three days) before your next scheduled payment date with Viably. Amazon has very stringent rules around changing your deposit method, to help mitigate risk or fraudulent attempts on your account, so we encourage you to follow the below steps to reduce any flags by Amazon. 

During the process of changing your deposit method on Amazon Seller Central, you can request a call from Amazon Support for additional assistance. Check "Urgent" to receive a call within 30minutes from Amazon Support. 

We recommend that you contact and inform Amazon’s client service before switching your bank account to your Viably Business Account as this can help reduce the risk of Amazon identifying the activity as unauthorized.
