How does the billing for Google Grants work?

***This question was copied from the Google Grants Product Forum***

 

Question:

I have everything set up just like the instructions said. Max CPC is set to $2.00, search network only, etc. I have the campaign created, ad group and keywords along with the ad being attached to a landing page. It will let me make the campaign active, but I have it paused right now. I use Adwords on the "paying" side..so I am curious how the grants part works? There is "NO" credit card information in our billing details, I don't want to turn this campaign on and have a bill at the end of the month?? Does it just add up the amount of our clicks and then you guys go in and do something? I don't see a credit or anything?? Thank you for any information you can give me on this!

 

Response: 

You are correct. Do not add billing information. If you add billing info Google will be sure to charge you.
 
Even though your Adwords account doesn't show a credit, as long as you have given the correct account number to Google the money will be taken out of your $10,000 a month grant. Also, make sure you don't spend more than $330 a day (which is approximately $10,000 a month).
