Update purchase order (PO) number and request invoice regeneration

When you create an account budget in Google Ads, you can add your own code or reference number in the purchase order (PO) number field. The number that you enter into this field will appear on your subsequent monthly invoice for that account budget.

This article explains how you can add or change a PO number within your Google Ads account. It’ll also show you how to request invoice regeneration if you change your PO number at a later date and require that updated PO number to appear on your invoice.

Before you begin

PO numbers can only be added to the following:

  • An account on monthly invoicing with an active account budget
  • An account on consolidated billing (this will appear in consolidated invoices and account statements)

PO Numbers cannot be added to:

  • Individual campaigns
  • Individual ad groups
  • Automatic payment accounts
  • Manual payment accounts

Keep in mind

The information you see in Billing & Payments will depend on your user permissions.

Add a new purchase order number

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing & payments.
    If you’re using the new Google Ads experience, you won’t see a gear icon in your account. Instead, click the tools icon in the upper right corner. You'll find Billing & payments under the “Setup” header.
  3. Click Account budgets in the menu on the left, then click Edit for the budget you’d like to update.
  4. In the “Edit account budget” menu, scroll down to Purchase order and enter the purchase order number.
  5. Click Save.

Remove or edit a purchase order number

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing & payments.
    If you’re using the new Google Ads experience, you won’t see a gear icon in your account. Instead, click the tools icon in the upper right corner. You'll find Billing & payments under the “Setup” header.
  3. Click Account budgets in the menu on the left, then click Edit for the budget you’d like to update.
  4. In the “Edit account budget” menu, scroll down to Purchase order and enter an updated purchase order number or remove the number.
  5. Click Save.

Request invoice regeneration

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click the gear icon and choose Billing & payments.
    If you’re using the new Google Ads experience, you won’t see a gear icon in your account. Instead, click the tools icon in the upper right corner. You'll find Billing & payments under the “Setup” header.
  3. Click Documents in the menu on the left, then click the invoice number that needs to be regenerated with the updated purchase order.
  4. Select Actions from the dropdown menu for the invoice and click Regenerate invoice with updated information. An updated invoice will be available in the account within 24 hours.

Keep in mind

Regenerating an invoice with updated information doesn’t generate a new invoice number, however the previous version of the invoice will disappear from the account and an invoice with the same number and updated information will become available in the account within 24 hours.

If you need a new invoice number, please contact your Google customer representative.
