Hi @bataka s,


If you open AdWords Express, you can see more about your ads and the spend amount associated with them. It could be that the billing is not going through and they are asking for the same payment again... or your ads are using all the budget you assigned to them and simply need to be paid for. Ads are a pay per click system, so if your ads are being clicked on, you are being charged for the action. 


The billing summary of your AdWords Express account is your one-stop-shop for paying for your advertising costs and managing your billing.


Your billing summary offers simple navigation, filtering options, and easy-to-see summaries of all your important billing and payment information.


Here are some of the things you can do on this tab:

  • See a summary of all your past transactions
    Click Transaction history to see past payments, credits and adjustments, and costs related to your account. You can sort, filter, print, or generate a spreadsheet of this information by clicking the Export button on the grey toolbar. And if you'd like to see your past payments and invoices, adjust the time range.
  • See your profile settings
    Click Billing profile to see your billing address, the billing ID number, and other contact information.
  • Change your billing settings
    Add a payment method to pay for your costs, assign a backup credit card, and see your payment setting. You can also switch from manual to automatic payments by clicking Billing settings. Note: The option to sign up for or switch to manual payments is now no longer available for AdWords Express advertisers in the U.S., UK, Italy, Japan, Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, and New Zealand.
  • Make a payment or apply a promotional code
    After clicking the Billing tab, click the Make a payment button near the top of the page to make a payment. Or click More actions and choose "Apply a promotional code" if you have one.


Sign in and review billing details for your account:


  1. Sign into your AdWords Express account.
  2. Click the Menu button menu at the top.
  3. Click Billing.


If you need more help, please just let us know.
