Hi @Mrs k,


Some banks and card issuers automatically decline AdWords charges with they first start appearing. The first thing to do is to contact your card issuer and have them do a review of declined charges and insist they allow Google AdWords payments to clear. 


Every time you use your credit card details to make a purchase, an authorization request is sent by the store or merchant to ensure that your credit card details are correct and that there are enough funds for the transaction to go through. This is a preliminary check before the transaction can be confirmed. The same thing happens when you update your credit card details in an AdWords account.

If the authorization request is successful, you won’t see any messages and the credit card gets updated in the account automatically. However, if the request is not fulfilled by your credit card company/bank, our system will show the error message “Authorization failed.” We usually also list the reason for the decline if it has been provided by your bank/credit card company. In some instances, however, when we don't get details from the bank for the decline, you may see the message “Authorization failed: no reason provided by your financial institution.”


Once you have cleared everything with your bank/card issuer, you can then return to AdWords and set up your payment method. Be sure all of the information is correct. Also, be sure to review this information that covers payment methods for AdWords. Change the country in the drop down menu at top of page so that you can access correct information for your location.
