Change Currency shown and Billing

I like to advertise my product in USA but I am located in Singapore and would like to be charge in Singapore dollars (SGD) for my adwords account. The adwords bids and billing are all shown in USD. However, I already set my billing address and country to Singapore but the platform still shows in USD.

 

*my time zone is setup in USA, is this why it keeps showing up in USD?

 

Will i be billed in USD or SGD in this case?

Hi there,

 

When you opened your account there would have been a option to change currency.  Once the currency is set, it cannot be changed. 

 

Timezone is a different setting.

 

It looks like the Google system determined you were in the USA and you accepted the default settings.

I opened a new account of Adwords with Google (I think), and even though I am in the US now, not Europe where I first opened an Adwords account, it is still in Euro. Do I need to delete the account again and start over? Thanks.

Hi Mick,

 

You cannot change the currency. Contact AdWords support and let them guide you through closing your account and opening a new one. Let them know the reason, as opening more than one account can raise red flags.

Actually I called Google Support for AdWords today to inquire. The support
member said yes, I could do it, but only with a tech. The tech guided me
through the process and said it would be a few hours till the currency
changed from Euro to dollar. One of the easiest tech support calls I've
made. I mean unless hackers feigned authenticity through the AdWords site.
Then I'm screwed. Gave them all the info they asked for. Stay tuned...

Sounds like it is only possible if the account has not generated any paid clicks yet.

 

Good result.
