I don't see a "Set up billing later" option

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'm setting up a Google AdWords account as part of the Google Grant application process, and I know I shouldn't put in my billing information. But I don't see a "set up billing later" option. All I see is a "save and continue" button which takes me to the Billing page. It won't let me proceed without putting in my billing information.

 

Has anyone had this problem? What should I do?

Hello Jenny,

I would recommend you ignore the billing setup. Once your account is approved for Google Grants then you can setup the account. You can read more at

Thanks,
Rahul

Hi Jenny,

It is important that you follow the steps exactly as outlined in the Grants Account Creation Guide

 

Within the guide is a specific link you will need to click for account set up of a Grant account. The process is not the same as building out  a regular AdWords account.

 

Simply follow the Grants Account Creation Guide and you will be fine.

Thanks Robert, so I've downloaded the editor but when i used the email address that i've registered for the Google grant with it says the account doesn't exist. So is it ok for me to set up the adwords account on a different gmail address for our org?

Hi, how did you get round this as following the guide it says to skip but there is no option to do this. Therefore, after entering the details as requested and setting up an ad but not being able to 'save and continue' in the billing section, do I submit the account for review?

Just wondering how to proceed here and if anyone can shed any light I;d appreciate it.

Hi NZ F,
My apologies for missing your question. Yes, you can use a new email address to set up the account, however,, it is always best to use the same email address as the one used to apply for Google For Nonprofits.
