Reactivate a canceled account

We're happy that you're interested in reactivating your Google AdWords account! Reactivating your account is free, and you'll only need to follow a few steps, according to how it was cancelled.

What will happen when you reactivate your account

When you canceled your account, all your active ads were automatically stopped. When you reactivate your account:

  • Any ads or campaigns that you left active will begin running again.
  • Any ads or campaigns that you paused will not run until you re-enable them.

If you don't want your ads to begin running immediately, pause them before you reactivate your account.

How to reactivate your account

Keep in mind

If you pay with Banelco (Argentina) or DineroMail (Mexico) you will not be able to reactivate this account once a refund is in process.

Please note that if there are no active campaigns in your AdWords account, then you must contact us to reactivate your account.
