Automatic payments

A payment setting in which advertising costs that you've accrued in your AdWords account are automatically charged to your payment method.

  • You're charged only after you've accrued advertising costs.
  • You'll be billed either 30 days after your last payment, or whenever your costs reach your billing threshold (the set amount that triggers a bill).

Threshold and 30-day payment boundaries

  • You can still make a manual payment at any time while on the automatic payment setting.
