Removing The Only Payment Option

How do I delete a payment option when there is only one card on the account and it is automatic billing? I set account up with a corporate card.


If I cannot delete card, how do I delete or terminate account to ensure automatic billing goes away? I've used prepay for all client accounts for 7+ years.

Hi Richard,


If there is single card in the account, that's considered a Primary method and atleast one form of payment is mandatory to include in the account. In case you want to remove it, first you need to enter another payment form and then select that as Primary. After that you will be able to remove the first card which is on file.


In case you don't want to run the ads for the time being, simply pause your campaigns and you won't be charged after that. However, if you have some pending dues, they will be reflected in your billing as per the billing threshold.


Still if you would like to cancel AdWords, here's the process:
