How do I switch my payment Method from Monthly Invoicing?

You may find yourself in a situation where you no longer want to be on Monthly Invoicing. If you want to switch your payment method away from Monthly Invoicing, keep reading!

 

If your account is already on monthly invoicing, you will need to speak to an Online Specialist by contacting the Google AdWords support team on any of the available options (Chat/Email/Phone Call/ Video Call).

 

Before you call, make sure you have the following pieces of information handy:

 

 

Billing Name

Billing Contact Details (Phone number and Email Id)

Business Name

Business Address.



Once the Online Specialist has changed your account from Monthly Invoicing, an email will be sent to the previous billing point of contact. They will need to accept the same for the transition to occur.

 

Once this is done, your account will be moved onto PrePay/Manual Payments.

 

As soon as your account is switched to PrePay, your account will stop serving until you upload a valid form of payment. You can choose to keep the account on PrePay and top the account up (similar to a PrePay cell phone) alternatively you can add a form of payment and move the account to Automatic Payments which will debit your account when your balance hits

certain thresholds.



Adding a form of payment and/or moving your account from PrePay to Automatic Payments is something that you can do yourself! Find these instructions, and more in this article from the AdWords Help Center.



What about Outstanding Charges?

 

Please note, that once the account has been moved over to Monthly Invoicing, you will still receive a final invoice after the first of the month. This final invoice will contain any outstanding charges that were present in the account before the switch and must be paid by the usual check or wire.

 

Do note: The last invoice of the outstanding amount before the switch cannot be charged to the Credit/Debit Card. Any charges that start to accrue after the switch to Automatic Payments will be charged to the form of payment on account.

Hi,

 

LCS advertisers can no longer pay by credit or debit card. Instead, monthly invoicing or automatic payments by bank account are now the only payment settings available to LCS accounts.

 

You can read more about this here on the Help Center.
