Is there a minimum contract length if I advertise my business with Google Adwords? Or can I shut down my campaign at any time?

Hello David,  Welcome to the Community

 

You can shut down the campaigns at any time. I recommend using the pre-pay option in order to avoid with the automatic post-payments.

Hi there;

I agree with Adrian except that experience shows, that users after experiencing  with "pre-pay" want to switch to "automatic payment":  this - at times- could be a tough process. Rest assured that you will not be charged beyond the time period your campaign is active;

However if you try to advertise with the help of a Google Partner, there could be additional conditions like a minimum contract length with them ( not with google directly) , mainly because in the first stage it is useful to setup some test campaigns for a month to gather data and take the best decisions regarding optimisations and costs. But this forum does not deal with issue between Google partners and their clients.
