  • 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 Express account.
Boleto bancário

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

Requirements

To use this payment method, you'll need an AdWords Express 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 Express account using boleto bancário, follow these steps below after creating your account.

  1. Sign in to your AdWords Express account at https://adwords.google.com/express.
  2. Select the gear icon  and click Billing.
  3. Click Transaction history.
  4. Click Make a payment. The minimum payment amount is 40 BRL.
  5. Select Boleto bancário. If you don't see it as an option, click the Add a new payment method link to see it.
  6. Select Boleto. Then, in the “Specify your payment amount” section, enter how much you'd like to make a payment for.
  7. 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 Express 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 Express account at https://adwords.google.com/express.
  2. Select the gear icon  and click Billing.
  3. You’ll be taken to your transaction history (or click Transaction history to get there). 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 Express 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 regular credit cards, we also accept debit cards with the Visa or MasterCard logo. You can use a credit or debit card to make automatic payments (pay after your ads run) or manual payments (pay before your ads run). See how to add, remove, or change a credit or debit card to make payments.

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 Express account.

If it is, the number might be unique to your AdWords Express account, which means it can only be used for this specific account.
  8. Print the form or write down the information provided.
  9. 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.

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 Express 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 Express 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:

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 beneficiary of the funds (that's Google AdWords).

What to expect

Funds will be credited to your AdWords Express account typically within two hours, 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 Express account .

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 Express account ).

If it's been over three 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 Express 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.

Access to billing and payments

Choosing who can perform such tasks as making payments, changing payment methods, or receiving invoices is managed in your payments profile. This profile, even if created and updated in AdWords Express, can be used in other Google products. Similarly, if you already have a payments relationship established with Google because you’ve used Google Play, for example, you can reuse that profile in AdWords Express without reentering all of your billing information. Learn more about payments profiles.

Reuse your profile

Though you can create and manage your payments profile entirely within your AdWords Express account, it actually can be used in other Google products. This means that a profile created within AdWords Express can be used to pay for services in many other Google products, like Google Play or Google Analytics premium features. This also means that if you have already established a payments relationship in an existing AdWords Express account or in another Google product, you can choose to use that profile without reentering all your information or creating a new profile for AdWords. It’s important to note that permissions for these profiles are managed through the Google payments center, not in AdWords account permissions. Learn more about reusable profiles in the Google payments help center.
