Note: Information in this article applies only to customers on monthly invoicing. If you make manual prepayments to your account or you’re charged automatically, then refer to the article About the new Billing Summary page.
On the “Transactions” page, you can take the following actions:
- Review all of your account's transactions (Each campaign’s accrued costs, as well as your account’s payments, adjustments, and taxes)
- Print or download invoices
- Sign in to your Google Ads account.
- Click the Tools & settings icon and choose Transactions under the “Billing” column.
What’s on your Transactions page
All your transactions are organized by month, and will show from newest to oldest, with the month’s starting balance at the bottom, and ending balance at the top. Note that transactions are always shown in Pacific Standard Time (PST), even if your account is set to a different time zone.
Here's what you'll see for different transactions.
|"Date" column||"Description" column||"Amount" column|
|Costs||Date range will display the entire month regardless of when the ads served.||Campaign name and number of accrued clicks, impressions, or views corresponding to the cost||A positive number showing costs accrued by the campaign that month|
|Adjustments||Date range will display the entire month regardless of when the specific adjustment was applied.||Adjustment type (for example, “Overdelivery credit” or “Invalid activity”). For invalid activity, we also display some additional details; these include the original invoice number, original month of service, PO number, account budget name, and campaign name where the invalid traffic originally occurred.||A negative number showing the amount the account received for a particular adjustment type in that month|
|Promotions||Date the promotion credit began spending||Promotion name or type||
The percentage (%) of your credit that was spent during this billing cycle. You can find the full amount of your promotion in the Promotions page.
Once active (ie. after spent requirements of your promotion are met), a promotion credit will be used up in full before we use your existing balance or charge your instrument on file. Any unspent credit will roll over to the next billing cycle, until you’ve used it all.
|Taxes, if applicable||First date of the month||Tax type, tax rate, and total taxed amount||A positive or negative number showing tax associated to costs or adjustments|
|Country-specific fees, if applicable (appears under Costs)||For countries where fees apply, the date range will display the entire month regardless of when the ads are served.||Country-specific fee type, rate, and total amount||A positive or negative number showing country-specific fees associated to costs or adjustments|
In addition, depending on your payment setting, you may see other payment-related line items on your “Transactions” page.
