SVCSAPPS / CC@Google.com Credit Card Charges | #AdWordsAnswers


Hello AdWords Community!


This is Vatsal from the Google AdWords team and today, I’m going to be talking about a charge from Google that you may have seen on your bank or card statements.



Is SVCSAPPS an AdWords account charge?



SVCSAPPS is not an AdWords charge.



When are SVCSAPPS charges deducted from my account?



There are two reason when these charges are made on your account:


Google Apps for Work: Once your free trial is over and your paid subscription begins, we begin charging your payment method at the beginning of the following month. If your paid service begins in May, for example, we charge you at the beginning of June. After that, automatic charges continue to occur at the beginning of each month.


Domain Registration: We debit your account when you initially purchase your domain, then charge your payment method at the beginning of the following month. If your domain is set to auto-renew, we renew your domain 7 days prior to the annual renewal date and charge your payment method at the beginning of the following month.



What is Google Apps for Work?



Google Apps for Work (formerly Google Apps for Business) is a suite of cloud computing productivity and collaboration software tools and software offered on a subscription basis by Google. It includes Google's popular web applications including Gmail, Google Drive, Google Hangouts, Google Calendar, and Google Docs.



What is Domain registration?



When Google helps you purchase an available domain from one of their domain host partners or help you in setting up your Google services for that domain.



I did not apply for any of these services. How can I dispute the charges?



You can contact the Google Apps Team here by clicking on the “Contact Us” option. You can also use the Google for Apps Help Forum.



What might Google Apps payments look like on my credit card?

I am receiving SVCSAPPS charges for $24.00/mo. How do I cancel this charge? 


I do not have Apps for Work nor have a domain registered with Google. Can you please advise how to cancel these charges? Would cancelling my gmail account cancel the charges?

Thank you!

I have a number of charges I have spotted on my credit card totalling $600 for an adwords account that I do not have.


I have completed the form and have been exchanging correspondence with one of your employees but he is unable to do anything about it becuase I cannot provide the account details registered by the person who is fraudulently using my card! This is insane. I have provided him all of the details of the credit card which was used to prove it is mine but how am I supposed to know the domain name and company address that the fraudster has used??


Now I have to pay the $600, file a police report and wait 2 months for my bank to resolve it, with Google seemingly unable to do anything for me! This is unbeleiveable and a lot of money. Are Google going to pay me the interest on this when I can;t afford to pay it off my card for the next 2 months??


This is really unacceptable and I cannot find a way to contact anybody more senior to look into my case.

Hi @Gareth F,


I'm sorry to hear about this frustrating situation. I am going to reach out to the folks you've spoken with on the AdWords Team and have them further investigate the issue. Please look out for follow-up communication from them.

Dear Google, 


I am trying to cancel an old Google for Business charge for a domain that's not existing anymore. 


When I try to login on the Google Apps Admin, it asks for a Google for Work account to login, where none of my credentials work, therefore I am not in the position to even send an email using the "Contact Us" link. 


I have tried everything but it all ends in this fantastic loop of reaching nowhere.


However, I still get the €4 charge each month on my credit card by GOOGLE*SVCAPPS


Could you please assist me with resolving this issue?  


Thank you

I've received 2 chages from Google and I don't know where they are coming from or how to cancel it. If I have a Google Apps account, I do not know how to access the admin login.
