primary billing method

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I added a valid credit card as a billing method.  However, when I go to the "Billing Summary" tab the "Primary Billing Method" is listed as "None".  The credit card shows as the chosen primary billing method on the "Billing Preferences" tab as well as the "Billing Setup" tab.  The ad won't run and is still prompting me to add a payment method.


What am I doing wrong here?


Thanks for your help!!!

Hello and welcome,


When did you include the billing details in your account? Is it today only or it has been more time since you updated this info?
