Change your account's billing address and notifications

At any time, you can make changes to the contact information in your AdWords billing account.

The specific contact information you can change, and how you change it, will depend on your billing payment setting: automatic payments, manual payments, or monthly invoicing.

Advertisers on automatic or manual payments

With AdWords, you can make payments before your ads show (manual payments) or automatically make payments after your ads show (automatic payments).

Update billing address and phone number

Before changing your billing contact information, keep the following in mind:

  • Your business address is the company address that you enter when you set up your AdWords account, and it appears on your account's invoices. Each AdWords account can have only one business address.
  • A billing address is what your credit card company or bank has on file. We use it to verify your payment information. If needed, you can enter a different billing address for each form of payment, because the billing address isn't required to match your company address.
  • Keep your billing information up to date. We can't make changes to your invoice, for example, if the wrong address is listed for the invoice.

Here's how to update your billing address or phone number:

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at https://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing.
  3. Click Billing profile on the side of the page.
  4. Click Edit and update your information.
  5. Click Save.

Change billing notifications

Billing notifications are emails we send to the billing contacts listed in your account. The different levels of notifications determine what kinds of emails we send: from All to Only critical. "Only critical" means that your ads may stop, or have stopped, running.

If you'd like to change these settings, click the My account tab in your AdWords account and select Notification settings.


Advertisers on monthly invoicing payment settings

Monthly invoicing is a payment setting in which Google extends a line of credit to you for your advertising costs, and you receive an invoice each month that you pay by check or wire transfer. If you pay for AdWords using monthly invoicing and you'd like to change your billing information, click the links below:

Update the bill-to address shown on my invoice

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at https://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing, then click the Billing settings link on the side.
  3. Under the Invoicing options section, click Advanced invoicing options.
  4. Make sure the drop-down menu next to Bill-to address reads "Display an alternate address I specify."
  5. Enter your information.
  6. Click Save.

Update the address used to mail or email my invoice

You can change your mailing address or email invoice delivery address any time. Just remember to make changes by the 25th of the month for them to take effect for the following month.

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at https://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing, then click the Billing settings link.
  3. Under the "Email invoice delivery" or "Mail invoice delivery" section, click Add new email address or click Edit next to the address you'd like to edit.
  4. Edit your address.
  5. Click Save.
  6. If you'd like to get a new invoice based on your changes, click the Invoices link on the side of the page, then the invoice number in the table.
  7. When the invoice displays, click Regenerate invoice with updated information link on the top side of the screen.

If the wrong invoicing address was printed on the invoice, you can reprint an invoice.

Change billing notifications

Billing notification levels determine what kinds of emails we send to the billing contacts listed in your account. Here's what each of them mean:

  • All billing emails: All emails about accounts, including information related to payments and invoices.
  • Only critical: Essential emails, such as a potential account suspension or requests to approve new product accounts.

If you'd like to add more contacts who should receive all billing-related emails, contact your sales representative or support team.

Tip

  • Some billing related-related emails (to verify an email address or opt out of receiving notifications) contain links that have an expiration date. This helps prevent accounts from being misused. If you've received an expired link and need a new one, try a link from a more recent email or have an account administrator resend one to you.
