Royalties are based on how and where your titles are offered through Prime Video.
Please refer to the Digital Video License Agreement for complete information. The following standard royalty payments apply:
Content providers receive 50% of net revenue. If you offer a season for purchase, customers who have purchased one or more episodes may be able to purchase the season for a discounted price. The season price is reduced by the amount the customer has already spent on previous episodes. You will receive 50% of net revenue for the episode and season purchases.
Royalties for Prime Subscription Access (Included with Prime) will be paid according to the rate card outlined in your Digital Video License Agreement. Refer to your rate card for a list of rates by territory. In select territories, your Customer Engagement Ranking (CER) will determine the rate at which your title is compensated. The CER is a percentile ranking of a title’s level of engagement with Prime customers in relation to other Included with Prime (SVOD) titles published via Prime Video Direct in a territory. For more information, see Customer Engagement Ranking. Titles published in all other territories will earn a fixed royalty rate per hour. Prime Video Direct account holders can preview the rate card through the banner on your Dashboard. If you don't have an account, sign up for Prime Video Direct.
Titles will earn royalties at a specified rate for the hours streamed in each territory. Hours will begin accruing when the title is streamed for the first time. Please refer to your Digital Video License Agreement (Section 7.2) for how Hours Viewed is calculated.
We issue payments approximately 90 days after the end of the month in which the revenue event occurred. You will receive payment from Amazon via electronic funds transfer unless electronic funds transfer is not available in your location, in which case you will receive payment by wire transfer. If you receive payment via wire transfer, Amazon may withhold payment until you have reached a minimum threshold in accrued license fees for the applicable local marketplace. The minimum threshold for wire transfers are below.
If your royalty earnings fall below the threshold for wire payments, we will keep a running total and issue payment after the amount exceeds the minimum threshold. Your payment occurs sixty days after the end of the month in which your royalties meet the threshold. When converting local royalty earnings to a different currency, the amount to be paid after conversion must meet the minimum amount banks will allow us to send.
We support electronic payments in the locations listed below. We’re actively expanding the list and will update this information when changes occur.
