Apply for monthly invoicing

This article describes how to get started with monthly invoicing. If you’re already an invoicing customer and would like to learn how to pay for your Google Ads costs, visit Make a payment for monthly invoicing.

Monthly invoicing is a payment setting in which Google extends a line of credit to you for your advertising costs, and you receive an invoice each month. Typically, this payment setting is used by large advertisers and businesses—for example, an ad agency that manages its clients' Google Ads accounts. Use this article to find out if you’re eligible to use this payment setting and learn how to apply for monthly invoicing.

Before you begin


You might be able to use the monthly invoicing payment setting if your business meets certain requirements. These requirement include, but aren't limited to the following:

  • Being registered as a business for a minimum of one year.
  • Having an active Google Ads account in good standing for a minimum of 6 months
  • Spending a minimum of $5,000 a month (this can vary by country) for any 3 of the last 12 months.

If you meet these initial requirements and would like to apply for monthly invoicing, contact us.

Note: The current bill-to information in the Google Ads account must match with the company information that will be used to apply for a credit line.

Application process

After you contact us to apply, we'll review your company credit history. If you're approved, we'll send an email to the company contact offering the following:

  • Payment terms: How much time you have to pay us after we've issued you an invoice. Typically, this is 30 days.
  • Credit line: The maximum balance for all the monthly invoiced accounts that you're responsible for. This balance is made up of all unpaid advertising costs, including charges that have and haven't yet been invoiced.

Once these terms are accepted, we'll convert your account to the monthly invoicing setting. During these changes, your ads won't stop running. 

Remember that if you exceed either your payment terms or credit line, your ads may be slowed or stopped. We'll email your invoice, usually by the 5th business day of the month, with instructions on how you can pay.
