Verify or change your billing email address

When you set up your Google billing account, you provide an email address where we can send secure information about your billing and payments. Protecting your financial information is important to Google, so before we send messages about your account to any address you give us, we need you to verify that the address is really yours. Also, if you ever want us to send billing messages to another address, you should update your billing account with the new address.

Verify your billing email address
  1. Open your email and look for an email from @google.com titled Google Billing: Verify your email address.
  2. Click the link in the email to verify your address.

That's it! We’ll now send information about your billing and payments to this address.

What if the link has expired?

If you received the email from Google to verify your address, but the link in the email has expired, just send yourself another verification email.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Billing.
  3. Next to your subscription, click More More and then Access billing account.

    Be sure to click More More next to your subscription, not in the top-right corner of the Admin console.

  4. Under Settings, click Manage Settings.
  5. Scroll to Payments contacts.
  6. Click your contact entry and click Resend Invitation.
Add or change payments contacts

To change the billing email address you entered during billing setup, or to have billing messages sent to an additional address, update your payments contacts.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Billing.
  3. Next to your subscription, click More More and then Access billing account.

    Be sure to click More More next to your subscription, not in the top-right corner of the Admin console.

  4. Under Settings, click Manage Settings.
  5. Scroll to Payments contacts and do one of the following:
    • Add an address: Click Add a new contact and fill in the new contact information.
    • Change an address: Click the contact name. Click Edit to the right of Contact Details and make your changes.
    • Remove an address (only available for an address you’ve added): Click the contact name and click Remove.
  6. If you add or change an address, click Edit to the right of Email preferences and select what messages you want sent to that address:
    • All payments email (required for the primary contact)
    • Administrative payments email only: Receives important notifications such as for missed payments.
    • No payments email (for a phone contact, only)
  7. Click Save. For a newly added contact, click Invite.

When you add or change an email address, you'll need to verify the address as described above. Until an email address is verified, you’ll see “Pending” next to the contact name.
