I am very new at this and after reading the legal to join I am concerned.  I would prefer to pre pay for my ads.  After speaking with some one earlier, this is no longer possible.  Why can't we set limits on what can be charged to our credit cards and not pay a fee of 1.5% ?

Hi there;

Both pre-pay and "automatic payment"( aka "post pay") are available; . In both options you can set a cap to your spending, by setting a daily budget. Google will not charge a single dollar over the monthly budget. (calculated as daily budget multiplied by 30.4)
