Billing Not Working

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

So I have a brand new $20 pre-paid card and I'm using it to run my ad. (I've always used pre-paid cards before and they worked fine) This card was working fine for about a day but then I got a message saying

 

Your ads aren't running - to resume serving ads, please verify your form of payment. Fix it

 

I clicked fix it and re-entered the card number and it started working again...only for another day, It gave me the same message, I clicked fix it and it ran for a day again and gave me the same message. I don't know what to do. Do you?

Hi Nicholas.
It's possible that the amount you are being billed is exceeding the amount that your card is authorized for. This is common with a "growing" account. Have a read beginning here about how it works: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1704418?hl=en
