Ive read that once you set your currency, then it will not be changed.

 

But I dont remember that I ever set my currency to Filipino Pesos Smiley Frustrated I want to change the currency to Norwegian NOK. What should I do?

Hi all,

 

So there are a few things that we can change from the initial set up of your account but unfortunately your currency is not one of them. It is such a fundamental part of the reporting in your account that we are not able to change it once you select it at start up.

 

In order to get around this you could download the entire account into AdWords editor and then upload it into a new account with the correct currency. As long as you pause or delete the ads in the old account, it will not matter that you are using the same domain.

 

Let us know if you need any more help or advice with this.

Hello,

 

The only way is to cancel the account and open a new one. It is explained in this thread :

Hello;
Contact your local Google customer service; As a courtesy they will do it. But only once; So make sure that, this time, you choose the currency correctly.

Thanks for the reply, but i cannot cancel the account since it's our main domain we are using.
