The First Cheque (Check?) from Amazon

As Paradise Press treasurer, I have just been passed the following:
It represents our e-book sales on amazon.com to the end of November 2012. Just how am I supposed to transfer this dollar cheque/check into sterling, especially as it is drawn on the ‘Wells Fargo Bank’ in the USA? Our bank here says it will cost anything from £8 up and I bet we get a crap exchange rate! At least, after taking timely action (see earlier posts), was I able to avoid Amazon being forced to pay a 30% ‘witholding tax’ to the Internal Revenue.

It is not unimportant to me as a significant slice of that cheque should come to me! Never mind the inequity that we have had to wait TWO months to get our hands on it. Just how much is Amazon making in interest on the money they are sitting on? I hate to think.

If you are not based in the US, be aware that selling your e-book on amazon.com is not without its problems.
