Set up a bank account as direct debit

With bank account (also known as direct debit) billing, Google automatically deducts your AdWords Express costs from your bank account. Read on to learn how bank account works and how to set one up in your account.

How it works

  • If you use automatic payments
    We'll process your payment after you've accrued advertising costs. You'll be billed 30 days after your last automatic charge, or when your costs reach a certain amount (known as your billing threshold), whichever comes first.
  • If you use manual payments
    On this setting, just save your bank account details in your AdWords Express account and verify your bank account. Once set up, you can use the "Make a payment" button on your billing summary page to make manual payments. Keep in mind that payments by bank account can take up to five days to process.
