Adwords Payment Issue in Egypt using credit cards

A lot of banks in Egypt have recently blocked Adwords payments using credit cards as Adwords ask to be paid in foreign currency (GBP) and there is a big shortage of hard currency nowadays. I hope responsible people at Google will find a solution for Egyptian advertisers to pay in the EGP (local currency).

Hi there,

 

Thanks for posting to the Community. I would recommend sending this feedback through the official AdWords feedback form here so that the Billing team will see it: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/176378?hl=en

Hi Nosteroids,

 

The fact that banks in Egypt have recently introduced restrictions on payments towards Google do indicate a weakness of the local currency which often leads to serious issues with convertibility. I, for one, do not expect Google to take this specific risk as they are usually not involved in large-scale foreign exchange transactions. In plain English I mean Google is not a bank.

 

My 2 cents.

 

Best,

Lakatos
