Knowing how to set up billing in Google Ads can be complicated when you are getting started. In this video, you will learn how to get started. Here’s how to find all things billing in the interface: Click Tools & Settings. And under the Billing tab you’ll see all your billing details and settings. Payment Options: There are three ways to pay for Google Ads: Automatic Payments: Google charges you after your ads run. Payments are due 30 days after your last automatic charge, or when you reach your payment threshold. Manual Payments: Pay before your ads run. This account credit will spend as your ads run. As your clicks (and costs) increase, your credit decreases. Your ads stop when your credit runs out. NOTE: Paying with manual payments is not an option for new accounts in many countries, including the United States and Canada. You should, however, be able to make manual payments on an existing account by clicking Make a Payment from your Google Ads Billing and Payments screen. Monthly invoicing (credit line): Eligible businesses can pay monthly invoices via a Google credit line. If eligible for this payment option, pay Google monthly (via bank transfer or check) by the date specified. NOTE: Most companies who pay with monthly invoicing have been registered as a business for at least one year, and have had a minimum ad spend of $5,000 for three out of the previous 12 months. Payment Threshold If you make automatic payments, your automatic payment will cover charges up to a certain amount— this amount is your billing threshold (or payment threshold). You will be charged when your account spending reaches that threshold, even if your next automatic payment is not yet due. If you reach the threshold before 30 days (the period covered by your automatic payment), your threshold will rise. Depending on how quickly you accrue pay-per-click costs, you could be charged multiple times monthly. You are not notified when Google Ads billing raises your threshold. I recommend checking your threshold often to ensure you are not overspending your digital advertising budget. Payment Method According to the country of your business address (and your payment option), you can pay your ads by credit, cheque, debit card, or bank transfer. To set your primary and backup payment methods, do the following (from the Billing and Payments screen): find your preferred payment method and select “primary” or “backup” according to your preference.
