If you pay for your Google Ads account using monthly invoicing, it’s possible for the billing setup within your account to become deactivated for various reasons, including the following:
- The account is unlinked from its paying manager
- The payments profile is unlinked its paying manager
- The account does not serve ads for an extended period of time
In the above circumstances, in order to continue using your Google Ads account, you'll need to create a new billing setup in the account.
You have two options to set up your Google Ads account: keep the account on monthly invoicing or set it up using manual or automatic payments (see which payment options are available for your country).
Stay on monthly invoicing
If you want to continue using monthly invoicing for your Google Ads account, you need to have this account linked to a manager account that will be responsible for its billing setup. This manager account is known as a paying manager.
Once you make sure your Google Ads account is linked to the paying manager of your choice, log in to that manager account (as a standard, admin, or billing-only user) and follow the set up instructions listed in this article.
Switch to manual or automatic payments
If you no longer want to use monthly invoicing with your account, you can set up billing using a manual or automatic payment method (see which payment options are available for your country).
Once you are ready to proceed, follow the instructions on how to add a payment method.
