Temporarily hold your Ad Exchange payments

You can temporarily hold your Ad Exchange payments by configuring your payment schedule. If you select the "Schedule my payout" option, Google will stop sending you payments until the date that you specify, but you'll continue to accrue revenue. Provided that your account balance has reached the payment threshold by this date, we'll issue a single payment in the next payment cycle for which you are eligible.

To configure your payment schedule:

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Click Billing and then Payments and then Payment settings.
  3. Next to "Payment schedule," click the "edit" icon.
  4. In the Increase payment threshold box, you can set a custom minimum threshold that will prevent payments from being sent out. The amount must be at least the default payment threshold in your local currency.
  5. To hold your payments, specify the desired date to resume payments in the Schedule my payout box.
  6. To end a hold and resume regular payments, click Reset to default.
  7. Click Save.
You are not able to hold your payments for more than one year. Additionally, you are not able to postpone the current month’s payment after the 21st of that month, when we begin processing payments. If you wish to postpone payment until a later date, we suggest you update your settings by the 20th.
