Hi Neil,


According to help docs ( "Your ads will being serving almost immediately after you make a prepayment. However, it may take up to 24 hours for the amount to appear on your Billing Summary page."


Not sure how long you've been waiting at this point but it would appear that if all else is good to go in your account, it should not take too long.
