90 day spend showing $0 USD, despite actual spend of $10k+.

I am trying to earn Googel Partner status for my company. My company has 90 day spend of over $10,000 USD and a member of the team is adwords certified.

 

The partner status for my google partner page shows: Not yet a Google Partner, and 90 day spend of $0 USD. Why is that and how can I resolve this?

The status has many factors, how long have you had your MCC? I believe you need to have the MCC in place for 12 months. It takes time to update after all factors are met. How long have you had your partner account set up? 

Quote: Partners requires at least 12 months of spend activity in your manager account.

Thanks Spencer.

 

I have just setup my partners account 2 days ago. And my Ad Manager/MCC account was setup 3 days ago. So, I guess my account doesn't meet the criteria: AdWords manager account that's at least 90 days old

 

Previously, I was managing the ads with a user account. And my account history has 12 months of activity and $10k spend in last 3 months.

 

Considering these, would I have to wait 3 months to be eligible to earn Google Partner badge, or would I have to wait 12 months.

Hi Salman,

 

As Spencer has stated, you have to have at least 12 months of activity with your "AdWords Manager Account," not just with any individual AdWords Account. If you just set up your AdWords Manager Account and company profile with Google Partners, you have to be evaluated over the next 12 months and meet all requirements for spend, performance, client management, etc.. before you can be considered for the program.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

No problem, @Salman M, It does take time for everything to fall into place. 

Quote: To assess your company's overall performance, Partners evaluates the client accounts linked to your manager account during an 18-month period. Partners requires at least 12 months of spend activity in your manager account.

So, it may take sometime, but dont get discouraged, time flies it happens fast enough, just get your manager account moving in the right direction and before long you will get the status you are after. 

Keep in mind if you are ever in doubt, have support take a look

 

Edit: Thanks James!
