As expected. To sell e-books via self-publishing platforms such as Kindle Direct Publishing and Kobo Writing Life Platform. A bank account is required for direct deposit.
It’s always a good idea to do some research when it comes to self-publishing and self-publishing platforms. Also be weary of advices you find online.
Anyways, I have two snags. One, being on shoe-string budget. Two, I have no access to a banking institution. It’s beyond my reach.
The upside, I have prepaid Link Visa Card. Of which I load funds on my card. But the downside is that the self-publishing portals don’t mail checks.
At the moment, a bank account is a luxury item. Travelling to other places is a tedious work, just to open a single bank account. To open a bank account and making it home alive and intact requires me to jump through hoops. Everything costs money, up here, plane tickets and food prices are outrageous. I am going have to figure out a few things.
