Just got in first time to AdWords making directly first campaign ... just move to payment method and showing me only Account type = Business ... no possibility to change. Even there was no option on the beginning asking me for account type. I do not want Business... I want only Individual. There is an option anywhere.

Thanks for help

Paul

Hi @Paul W,

 

The account type cannot be changed manually so you will need to contact AdWords Support and ask if they will. Sometimes it can be done and others times it cannot. Same with currency & country. Open AdWords and click on the gear icon in the upper right hand corner and call the number shown... or click on Help and use another method to interact with support. 

 

All the Best,

 

James

Thank you, James,

I got some promotional code and phone number and I will call there tomorrow. Honestly, the google interface is not user-friendly as it could be in more areas. I think such big company can still learn a lot. Still, a little bit surprised but not blaming them. Just hints where to improve. Many things I know how to do more clear and ergonomic.

Paul.
