You can monitor your Google Ads payments and account balance anytime you'd like. Here's how.

Check your payment status

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click the Tools and settings icon Google Ads | tools [Icon] and under "Billing", choose Summary.
  3. Scroll down to view the appropriate month’s card. 
    • The current month’s card will be closed by default. If you want to check one of the previous month’s payments, scroll further down to Previous activity table. 

  4. In the table, click the chevron to open the Payments section. 
  5. In the middle column, you'll see a line item for your payment. Here are the different descriptions you might see:
    • "Automatic payment scheduled": A payment will happen in the next few days. This status shows for accounts on automatic payments with a bank account listed as the primary payment method. Once the payment is complete, it'll show as "Automatic payment."
    • "Manual (or Automatic) payment pending": A payment is underway. Once the payment has been completed, it'll show as "Manual payment" or "Automatic payment". It might take a couple minutes until this line item shows up on the Summary page after a manual payment has been made.
    • "Manual Payment": A payment you've initiated has been applied to your account.
    • "Automatic payment": An automatic payment has been applied to your account.
    • "Manual (or Automatic) Payment declined": Your bank or credit card company declined your payment. Learn more about resolving declined payments in Google Ads

Check your current balance

Manual payments
  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click the Tools and settings icon Google Ads | tools [Icon], then under "Billing", choose Summary.
From that page, you can view your Available funds. This is the amount of money you have to spend for future ad activities.
Automatic payments 
  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click the Tools and settings icon Google Ads | tools [Icon], then under "Billing", choose Summary.
    • In the current month’s card, you can view your Current balance amount with a negative or positive sign and how the activity took place. Here's what this means:
      • Negative numbers show an account credit that can  be used for future advertising costs. If you're using automatic payments, you'll see a negative account balance only if you've decided to make a payment for more than your previous balance.
      • Positive numbers show the amount that you owe for ad activity you've already accrued. If you're using automatic payments, your balance will usually be positive unless you've made a payment for more than your previous balance
