What Exactly is Google AdWords Billing Verification Process?

Hello All Masters of AdWords! Smiley Happy

 

I am new to Google AdWords, I have created a campaign and now stuck as I have received a mail that my account is under billing verification process.

 

I want to know what exactly is Google AdWords billing verification process?

I have used a Google voucher I got from my hosting provider.

Is this creating a problem?

Though for your information, my gmail ID is quite old (more than 4 years).

 

My request to Google employees, Google AdWords Masters and Experts. Please guide me and help me out.

 

 

Thanks

a Newbie

When you set up a new account, it's normal to have Google (or any company online for that matter) verify your billing information.

 

You need to add your credit/debit card though before you can use your voucher.

Once your card and details are added, it doesn't take more than a day or two usually to get verified.

For the verification process Google or any other company will ask authorization of 5 dollars,

 

Since Google will NOT submit a payment against this authorization, it will be removed from your credit card balance within a few days. (Hence, this authorization is not a charge. It's "an amount put aside",  waiting a for the transaction to be processed. If no payment transaction is wired within 7 days - the authorization is removed.)
