Switching from manual payments to consolidated billing

Hi everyone,

we have some accounts in our MCC. All of them were set to manual payments, because it was better for us to prepay and then just wait for the next date of payment to come. Well, they are too many now and we are switching to consolidated billing.

My question is- when we prepaid for one account and still have money not used- for example we have 200 dollars budget in, in the moment we switch, is this prepaid budget going to be lost?

I mean will it disappear? Or it will first be spend the first days after the change and then when the new costs start to accrue they will be covered by the consolidated invoicing?


Thanks and BR,

In consolidated billing you pay directly to Google within the time period (aka credit period) set between you and Google. It's your responsibility to charge the client and collect the charges need your fees from the client. You may charge the client upfront or allow a few days of credit.
