Choose a form of payment

A form of payment is what you use to pay for AdWords. Depending on your country and currency, the available forms of payment can vary. Below, you can learn how to use the forms of payment available in your country. For a precise list of what's available for your country and currency, including which types of credit cards are accepted, visit the payment options tool.

Available forms of payment

Bank account (also known as direct debit)

With this form of payment, Google deducts your payments for AdWords from your bank account.

How it works

If you use the automatic payment setting, we'll automatically charge your bank account after you've accrued advertising costs. You'll be billed 30 days after your last automatic payment, or when your costs reach a certain amount (known as your billing threshold), whichever comes first.

If you use the manual payment setting, you can manually make a payment and we'll charge your bank account.

Setup

To use this form of payment, you'll need to first save payment information in your AdWords account and then verify your bank account. This process will vary depending on your country. Here's how to set up a bank account as your form of payment:

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at http://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing. Billing tab has moved under gear icon
  3. Click the Billing settings link.
  4. Under the Your selections setting, click the Add a new form of payment button.
  5. Select Bank account, fill out your bank information, and agree to the terms and conditions provided.
  6. To make this your primary form of payment, click the box next to Make this my primary form of payment.
  7. Click the Save button.

What to expect

  • It can take several days to process your payment.
  • If your account is new, your ads will run once you've verified your bank account. If you'd like your ads to show in the meantime, you can use a credit card to pay for costs.
  • If your account isn't new, just assign your bank account as a primary form of payment. Again, it'll work once your bank account is verified.
  • If you don't want your ads to run immediately after your bank account is verified, be sure to pause your campaigns.
  • Please keep all records of a payment until you see that it has reached your AdWords account.
Boleto bancário

With boleto bancário, you can make a make a manual payment for your AdWords costs.

Requirements

To use this form of payment, you'll need an AdWords account with a business address in Brazil, with the Brazilian Real (BRL) selected as your account's currency.

Setup

If you'd like to make a payment to your AdWords account using boleto bancário, follow these steps below after creating your account.

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at http://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing. Billing tab has moved under gear icon
  3. Click the Make a payment button. The minimum payment amount is 40 BRL.
  4. Select Boleto bancário. If you don't see it as an option, click the Add a new form of payment link to see it.
  5. Select Boleto. Then, in the “Specify your payment amount” section, enter how much you'd like to make a payment for.
  6. Click the Create Boleto button. A boleto will be generated, which you can print or email.

What to expect

You can pay the boleto on the day it was generated, or schedule the payment for a more convenient date, keeping in mind the eight-day expiration period. If you miss this period, you can generate a new boleto and discard the old one.

Once you've submitted your boleto at your bank or your bank's online boleto payment page, your payment should be processed within about three business days. If you're making your first payment or your account is out of funds, your ads will typically start running at this point. Continue to make payments as needed in the future. You can issue and pay boletos in any amount over R$40.00.

Invoices and receipts

  • Invoices: You'll receive monthly invoices reflecting the charges accrued in your account each calendar month. Because you're only charged for the clicks that occurred on your ads in a given month, the amount in your invoice may be smaller than the amount you paid via boleto. Any remaining funds in your account can be used in ensuing months.
  • Receipts: Your receipt is issued on the last day of the month and sent to the AdWords account contact e-mail between the 5th and 10th business day of the following month.

You'll receive an email letting you know that the receipt was issued and that it's available on the City Government website. The letter includes the link, Corporate Taxpayers' Registry (CNPJ) of the service provider, the receipt number, and the verification code for accessing the receipt. It's important that you keep your registration information updated to avoid mail delivery problems.

Obtain a voucher

Receipts concern the services provided during a given month, and not the payment of a specific boleto. Each receipt is issued to collect the applicable taxes on the services provided.

As a result, this amount might differ from the amount deposited through the boleto. Please note, however, that all the funds remaining in your account can be used during the following months and will be included in the receipts related to the date on which the service was provided.

If you'd like to get a voucher of the total amount paid by bill, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at http://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing. Billing tab has moved under gear icon
  3. Click the Transaction history link on the side menu. (If you want to see the billing summary associated with a specific period, select the corresponding months and years on the drop down menu at the top of the page and click OK.)
  4. Click Payment Received for any line item that reflects a charge made to your account.
  5. On your browser menu, select File and Print.
  6. Click Print.

Keep in mind

  • Check your prepaid account balance regularly to make sure that you don't run out of funds. Make more payments as needed. When your Google AdWords prepayment balance is running low, we'll email you to let you know to make an additional payment.
  • You might be able to make payments at your local bank or online. Some banks accept boleto payments through their websites using the boleto reference number. Contact your bank to determine your options for paying a boleto.
  • Your bank shouldn't charge you a processing fee. However, if for some reason your bank imposes a fee or is unable to complete the transaction, another local bank may be able to provide more suitable options.

Delays

All paid boletos are processed within three business days. If your payment isn't reflected in your account after three days, please contact us and attach digital copies of your proof of payment and the respective boleto. The document must be legible and include your Customer ID and name. Once we have received your proof of payment, we will investigate the issue.

Credit cards and debit cards

In addition to certain types of credit cards, we also accept debit cards with the Visa or MasterCard logo. You can use a credit or debit card no matter if you're on automatic payments (you're automatically charged after your ads run) or manual payments (you put funds into your account before your ads run).

Make a payment with a one-time use credit card

In addition to regular credit cards, you can also use a one-time use credit card (also known as virtual credit card). It's commonly used as an alternative to physical credit cards when making online payments. AdWords accepts these credit cards as long as they have a Visa or MasterCard logo. If you don't have a physical credit card, contact your bank to see if they offer them.

Steps to use a one-time use credit card:

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at http://adwords.google.com.

What to expect

When processing your payment, Google will test a $1 debit from the pre-selected credit limit to make sure the card works (you won't actually be charged for this). So when selecting your credit limit for this card, be sure to add $1 to whatever amount you want charged. For example, if you want to charge $300 to your card, select $301 as the limit for your one-time use card.

Just like physical credit cards, your ads will start serving almost immediately after you've made a payment.

Once your one-time use card's expiration date or credit limit is reached, be sure to generate another one-time use card and enter the information in your account for future payments. Otherwise, your payment could be declined. For all other payment declines, please contact your local banks.

Please keep all records of a payment until you see that it has reached your AdWords account.

Credit cards

You can use a credit or debit card no matter if you're on automatic payments (you're automatically charged after your ads run) or manual payments (you put funds into your account before your ads run), as long as your credit card company or bank has approved the card for international use.

Credit card

You can use a credit card for automatic payments (you're automatically charged after your ads run) or manual payments (you put funds into your account before your ads run). To add a credit card to your account, you'll first register your card and then verify it with your bank to ensure online security.

Read on to learn how to learn how to register and verify your credit card, and how you'll see charges and make payments on the automatic or manual payment setting.

Register, verify, make payments with, or remove your credit card

On August 1, 2009, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) started requiring all online credit card transactions to be processed using enhanced security procedures. This extra step, which includes credit card verification, helps ensure that your credit card isn't misused.

You can complete this step when you add a credit card to your AdWords account. We'll help you connect with your bank to authenticate your credit card, and we'll confirm whether or not it was successful. Click the links below to see steps for the following:

Register and verify your card
  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at http://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing.Billing tab has moved under gear icon
  3. Click the Billing settings link.
  4. Click the Add new form of payment button.
  5. Select the Credit card button.
  6. Enter your credit card information.
  7. Click the Continue button. A pop-up message will appear, asking for permission to send you to your bank's website to verify your credit card.
  8. Click the Verify credit card button to continue.
  9. A new browser window will open, sending you to the bank that issued your credit card. The steps to verify your card varies by bank, but you might see a purchase amount for INR 2.00. This is just a temporary authorization, not an actual charge.
  10. If you successfully verified your card, you'll see a message letting you know. Close the window to move on to your AdWords account.
  11. You'll be taken to your Billing settings page, where you'll see your credit card information.

The verification process typically takes a few minutes, and you only have to do it once when you first add a credit card to your account. Registered credit cards can be used for both automatic and manual payments.

Make a manual payment with your credit card
  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at http://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing.Billing tab has moved under gear icon
  3. Click the Make a payment button.
  4. If you've registered a credit card, select the one that you'd like to make a payment with. If you'd like to use new credit card, click on Add new form of payment and follow the process outlined in the previous section.
  5. Enter your payment amount and click Proceed.

Usually, once you've made a payment, it's immediately processed. But it can take up to 24 hours to be credited on your account.

Remove a card from your account
  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at http://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing.Billing tab has moved under gear icon
  3. Click the Billing settings link.
  4. Then find the credit card that you'd like to remove. Just remember that you can't remove a credit card used as your primary form of payment until you've added a new form of payment and designated that as your primary.

What to expect (automatic payments)

If you've set up your account on the automatic payments setting and registered a credit card, you'll be charged after your ads run and you accrue advertising costs. Once you add a credit card as a primary form of payment to your account, the card's automatically charged after your advertising costs reach a predetermined amount or 30 days after your last automatic charge, whichever comes first.

Please keep all records of a payment until you see that it has reached your AdWords account.

Funds transfer

This form of payment is exactly what it sounds like: you add money to your AdWords account by transferring money to Google. Click the link below to see how to set it up for your account.

Use funds transfer for your account
  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at http://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing.Billing tab has moved under gear icon
  3. Click the Make a payment button. If you don't see funds transfer as an option, click the Or add a new form of payment link, then select Funds transfer.
  4. Click Continue to make a payment.
  5. Enter the amount of money you'd like to transfer into your AdWords account. Keep in mind that there might be a minimum amount for your location and currency. Click Continue to review.
  6. After making sure that the payment information is correct, click the Submit and generate reference number button to generate a transfer information form. This form provides all the information you need to make a funds transfer, including a unique reference number if it's needed for your location. If it is, the number might be unique to your AdWords account, which means it can only be used for this specific account. You should generate a new reference number for each transfer you make.
  7. Print the form or write down the information provided.
  8. Follow the information on your form to initiate a funds transfer. This process varies from bank to bank, so ask your bank for its specific instructions.

To process your payment, you'll need to include your unique reference number on your bank's transfer form. If the form's Notes field or Reference number field doesn't have enough room for the entire number, enter the number in the Name field before, or instead of, your name. Remember that the reference number is found on the transfer information form that you generated in your AdWords account. It's different from your AdWords Customer ID.

What to expect

Once we receive your funds transfer, we'll send you an email. You ads will typically start running then if they had stopped or if this is your first payment. If you're refreshing your balance, your ads will continue running.

Processing time: two to five business days, depending on your location. In some cases, it can take up to 30 days. That's because a funds transfer depends on a few factors, including local bank processes. Please keep all records of a payment until you see that it has reached your AdWords account.

Delays

If you're worried that your funds transfer is taking too long, there are a couple things you can do to check that your payment is on its way:

  • Check that your funds have been withdrawn from your bank account. If they haven't, contact your bank.
  • Check with your bank that the funds were transferred to the correct account. The account number should be the same as the one listed in our payment instructions (generated when you made a funds transfer payment in your AdWords account).

If it's been over two weeks since you initiated the transfer and you still don't see your payment reflected in your account, you can contact us. You'll need to include a valid proof of payment with this contact form (by clicking the "Choose File" button). Click the link below to see more about a valid proof of payment:

What a valid proof of payment is

A valid proof of payment follows these guidelines:

  • It can be a scanned copy of your receipt or a screenshot of your bank's online statement.
  • It must be in an uneditable format, such as .jpg, .gif, or .png.
  • It must include the following information:
    • The date the transfer was made. If possible, show all transactions for five days before and after the payment.
    • The amount and currency of the payment.
    • The beneficiary of the funds (that's Google AdWords).
    • The name of the remitting bank.
  • For your security, please black out any sensitive information on your bank or credit card statement, particularly your entire bank account number or the middle eight digits of your credit card number.

Requirements

To use this form of payment, you'll need an AdWords account with a business address in Japan, and Japanese Yen (JPY) selected as your account's currency.

Setup

If you'd like to make a payment to your AdWords account using funds transfer, follow these steps:

Make a funds transfer
  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at http://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing.Billing tab has moved under gear icon
  3. Click the Make a payment button. The minimum payment amount is JPY 1,000.
  4. Select Funds transfer. If you don't see it as an option, click the Add a new form of payment link to see it.
  5. Use the bank information provided to make an ATM or funds transfer payment, which can be done in person or via your bank's website.

Bank transfers will typically be credited to your account within three business days. To allow for faster processing, we've assigned a unique bank account number to your AdWords account. Your payment must be sent to this unique bank account number each time you initiate a bank transfer or ATM payment. This bank account information can be found on your AdWords account's Billing settings page, in the fields labeled Beneficiary account number and Branch code.

What to expect

Funds will typically be credited to your AdWords account within three business days, but it can sometimes take longer. Be sure to keep all payment records and receipts until you see that the payment has reached your AdWords account.

Processing time: Usually three business days, but it can take longer. That's because a transfer depends on a number of factors, including your bank's processes.

Delays

If you're worried that your payment is taking too long, there are a couple things you can do to check that it's on its way:

  • Check that your funds have been withdrawn from your bank account. If they haven't, contact your bank.
  • Check with your bank that the funds were transferred to the correct account. The account number should be the same as the one listed in our payment instructions (generated when you made a funds transfer payment in your AdWords account).

If it's been over five business days since you initiated the transfer and you still don't see your payment reflected in your account, you can contact us. You'll need to include a valid proof of payment with this form (by clicking the "Choose File" button). Click the link below to see more about a valid proof of payment:

How to include a valid proof of payment

A valid proof of payment follows these guidelines:

  • It can be a scanned copy of your receipt or a screenshot of your bank's online statement.
  • It must be in an uneditable format, such as .jpg, .gif, or .png.
  • It must include the following information:
    • The date the transfer was made. If possible, show all transactions for five days before and after the payment.
    • The amount and currency of the payment.
    • The beneficiary of the funds (Google AdWords).
    • The name of the remitting bank.
  • For your security, please black out any sensitive information on your bank or credit card statement, particularly your entire bank account number or the middle eight digits of your credit card number.

Connection problems and payments

If you don't see your payment credited to your account within two or three hours, it's possible that the online connection between your bank and GlobalCollect was interrupted. This happens sometimes, unfortunately. If it does, click the link below to see more information:

More on interrupted connections

Here's what you can expect, based on the type of connection interruption you encounter:

  • Temporary interruption: GlobalCollect will receive a payment notice from your bank but the connection to Google might be interrupted. You won't receive an error message, but your payment will be applied to your AdWords account after it's been processed. This can take as long as five days.
  • Permanent interruption: You'll receive an error message about an unsuccessful payment. If you want, you can make a non-real time bank transfer to GlobalCollect, which can take five to 10 business days before being credited to your account.
