Getting certified: should the client or agency pay the bill?

Hi,

 

I'm an AdWords account manager at a marketing agency and I'm trying to get us certified with the partner program.

 

With regards to the 90-spend requirement- does it matter if each of our clients pays Google directly or does the $10k have to be paid by our agency?

 

Thanks,

Rachael

Hello @Rachael H,

Let me see if I can help you out here. The spend is the total dollar amount managed by your agency. The 10K is accumulated from client spend. 

 

Spend: Meet a 90-day ad spend requirement of $10,000 USD across your managed accounts to show that your company has a healthy amount of activity. Meet a higher spend requirement across your managed accounts to show that your company has a healthy amount of activity.

I hope that explains it for you.
