I am a UK author and I have a couple of titles available on the Amazon Kindle, occasionally one or two of them sell a copy, and that's brilliant.

My problem is that when the books sell in the US - I'm not entirely sure how to get paid by electronic bank transfer from Amazon. When I try and set up an account I can only say that my bank is located in the US (which I think is okay, as my bank has US branches), and I'm asked for an account number and a 9-digit routing number) and I'm felt quite confused because the account numbers I have are not the right length.

Have any UK-based authors solved this problem?

Whoa... what happened? I was looking for the opinions of authors? how've I arrived here? Really confused... :( –  Joe Mar 7 '12 at 19:49
Joe, this is outside of the scope of the Writers site, which is why it was migrated here. The Writers site is about writing and tools for writing. The Kindle site is a web application. I'm actually wondering if this is really a web app issue or a banking issue. If web apps can't help you, maybe Kindle seller support can help. –  neilfein Mar 8 '12 at 4:33
I think you're better off contacting Kindle support. –  Sathya Nov 6 '12 at 5:13
