Hi Adwords Experts, My campaign budget exceeded limit by $300!! even though i have created an automated rule to pause ad groups when it reach $200.

Now i don't have enough funds to pay that extra $300 please suggest me what to do in this situation?

here's a screenshot showing the rule i've created previously and the total spent on the campaign.

Hi Nick

 

I had similar situation yesterday - my campaign spend 5x more than set daily budget within 2 days. I called support and they said they fix the real bill and I'll not pay for these unwanted clicks. Try do this same.

 

However in your case it might be another reason - your rule fires once per day, in the morning. It means your spend is checked at 10 am and next time in the next day. It makes wide open window to spend much more than you expect between 10:01 am and 9:59 next day.

You should use scrpit which fires e.g. hourly to check your spend more frequent.
