Make a payment for monthly invoicing accounts

Most monthly invoicing advertisers can make payments by wire transfer or cheque, though options might vary in your country. There's no fee for using monthly invoicing, a credit line for which you are approved when you apply. This article will walk you through the steps for making a payment and provide you with a few tips to ensure that your payment is applied as quickly and accurately as possible.

Before you begin

  • Have your invoice handy. It will state the payment options available to you, and you can find banking details at the bottom.
  • Remember to always include the associated Google invoice number (not your local tax invoice) and credit note number with your payments, which can make payment application to your account much faster. If no details are provided with the payment, it might be applied toward the oldest charges in your account first. Be sure to include tax withholding documents, if applicable, and indicate which invoice they should be matched to.
  • If you have questions about invoice numbers or payment processing, email the address shown on your invoice.

When to pay

You make payments according to the terms and conditions that you agree to when you enrol in monthly invoicing. These terms will include the number of days you have to pay your invoice.

Pay by wire transfer

  1. Sign in to your bank portal to make a payment.
  2. Enter the following information in the 'Additional information' field:
    • All the invoice numbers and credit note numbers (if any)
    • Payments profile ID
    • Customer name
  3. Enter all the invoice numbers and credit note numbers (if any) in the electronic payment form's 'Additional information' field, as shown below:
    Example: 3400000001 / 3400000002 / 3500000003 / 3300000009
  4. If not all invoice numbers can be included in the electronic payment form, proceed with the following steps:
    • On the same day that you send the wire transfer, write to the email address displayed on your Google invoice or to your collections representative.
    • In the subject line, write 'Remittance [your company name] [total payment amount]'.
    • In the message body, include all the invoice numbers and credit note numbers (if any), with respective payment amounts. Be sure to include tax withholding documents, if applicable, and indicate which invoice they should be matched to.

Bear in mind

Depending on your bank, the 'Additional information' field could have a different name, such as 'Notification', 'Description', 'Reference' or others.

Pay by cheque

  1. Write invoice numbers and credit note numbers (if any) on your cheque.
    • If you are paying for multiple invoices and need more space than is provided on the cheque, write or print all invoice and credit note numbers, with respective amounts, on a separate sheet and include it with your payment.
  2. Send the physical cheque to the address displayed at the bottom of your Google invoice.

For cheque payment outside the US

  • On the day you send the cheque, write to the email address displayed on your Google invoice.
  • In the subject line, write 'Remittance [your company name] [total payment amount]'.
  • In the message body, include all invoice numbers and credit note numbers (if any), with respective payment amounts.

Example:

Invoice/Credit note Amount
3400000001 $100.00
3400000002 $200.01
3500000003 $300.02
3300000009 -$50.09
