So, they told me they fixed the billing issue. Well...sorta....
I can now enter the credit card. I even made a prepayment. However, the account is still showing a big Red Alert saying that my account is not active because of billing. I click thru to billing ,there is nothing wrong there. Yet, still inactive.....cant seem to win.
Re: Ugh....still problems.
Though it's not typical, it may take up to 24 hours or more till payment is settled okay. I'd wait a day or so till servers get aligned and synch-ed with each other.
An important factor to AdWords is patience.
