What country should I select for my new Ad Account if I'm traveling?
3
Hello, I'm from Spain, but currently staying in Indonesia.

I want to start running ads on Google, but on the setup process, it asks me to select a country.

The problem is I don't know if I should select Indonesia, or Spain. A Google Rep told me to select Indonesia, but I don't think it makes much sense considering my gmail account is from Spain and I'm a Spanish citizen. But I'm living in Indonesia as of right now... I don't know how long I'll be here, maybe 2 months, maybe indefinitely.

My main concern is to not correctly set this up and get shut down because of suspicious activity or the payment method not matching the country selected for the account.

My payment method is from the USA. Which makes things even harder.

Thank you.

Thank you guys for your answers. I'll just run ads with a friend from Spain, so he'll manage everything from there while I'm in Indonesia. I think that's the best way to go.

Hey Robert, I did the setup as you recommended and it worked. We now have ads up and running. 

I want to know though: to add myself as an account manager, I just create a new email account, add me to the ad account, and I'll be able to modify the ads myself? Is that safe? Or I should avoid doing changes and just monitor performance and tell my partner from Spain to do the changes himself?

Also, I wanna ask you: I have access from Indonesia to the email account he's using to run ads. Should I avoid logging into that email altogether? Like, I can't even check the email inbox? Or it's just the ads manager that I should be careful with?

Thank you very much, I really appreciate your help.

Since my business is to my name, I gave the person from Spain a Google Account I had to my name that I only use for business advertising purposes. 

But for me, what account should I use? Another one that's to my name? Would that flag something or is it okay? Or should I just create one account that's not to my name and use that to be added as an admin? Although I guess I would have to create a fake name...

Only use one Google Ads account. Having more than one can get you permanently suspended. 
 
You can use one account to advertise different web sites.
