A paying manager is a manager account that controls monthly invoicing setups used by the Ads accounts beneath it in a manager account hierarchy.
Users with standard, admin and billing-only access that are signed in to the paying manager (or any manager account above it) can view invoices, edit budgets and perform billing transfers for Ads accounts under that manager. Although one Ads account can be linked to multiple manager accounts, the billing setup for that Google Ads account is managed by only one of those manager accounts. That’s because a single Google Ads account can only have one active billing setup at any given time.
You can find the paying manager name and ID for a Google Ads account by navigating to its 'Billing settings' page.
You can also find the paying manager name and ID for all your linked Google Ads accounts by adding the 'Paying manager' column to the 'Budgets' page of your manager account. Learn how to customise tables and charts
