Create and manage your payments profile

Your Google payments profile stores information like:

  • Name, address, and tax ID (when required legally) of who is responsible for the profile
  • Credit cards, debit cards, bank accounts, and other payment methods you’ve used to buy through Google in the past
  • Receipts and other information about past transactions
  • Subscriptions and recurring payments
  • People you invited to use your profile

You can create a profile, use other profiles you’re invited to, edit profile information, or delete profiles.

You can also add or remove people from your payments profile.

Create a payments profile or accept an invitation to a profile

If you pay for Google products or services, a payments profile is automatically created for you the first time you enter payment details during checkout.

When you enter new payment information for a Google product or service, it gets saved in a payment profile. The next time you buy something through Google, you can reuse the information in the profile or create a new profile. Any payments profile you create or are invited to is associated with your Google Account.

"Individual" and "Business" profiles

Important: For some business products, like Google Ads, you may find Account type = "Organization" instead of "Business."

When you create a profile with some Google products and services, you’ll be asked whether it’s an "individual" or "business" profile. This information must be accurate for tax and identity verification.

Tip: You can only edit your legal company name with a business account. Learn how to update your payments profile

This setting can’t be changed. Make sure to choose the one that best fits how you plan to use your profile.

  • Individual: Choose this setting if you’re using your account for your own personal payments.
  • Business: Choose this setting if you’re paying on behalf of a business, organization, partnership, or educational institution.
Create more than one profile

When you check out with some Google products, you can create another profile. If you have the option to create a new profile, you’ll be asked to enter your payment information when you sign up.

When to use multiple profiles

If you’re using your profile for personal payments, we recommend only creating one payments profile. That way, you can manage all of your Google purchases from a single place.

You might want to create another profile if:

  • You want to have separate personal and business profiles tied to your Google Account.
  • You want to manage profiles for more than one business or organization.
  • You want to have profiles in multiple countries. (You may have to create a new profile when changing countries.)

  1. Sign in to Settings.
  2. Under "Payments profile," next to "Country," click Edit. Edit.
  3.  Click the Create new profile link that appears.
  4. A message appears. Click Continue.
  5. From the drop-down list, choose the desired country for the new profile, and click Continue.
