I have submitted my billing information correct and paid 500 rupees to start the campaign, although I am getting this error "Your account isn't active - To activate your account and start running your ads, enter your billing information"


What should I do?

Hi Kumkum,


If you did that just now, I would suggest you to wait for sometime until your account becomes active.

When you enter the details, the system takes sometime to update the details and activate your account. It also depends upon if AdWords system need to verify the payment method used by the advertiser. So give it sometime and then see if your account is active or not.
