How to Add a Billing Method in a Google Ads Account
Managing a Google Ads account requires you to have a billing method in place to pay for your advertising costs. In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps of adding a billing method to your Google Ads account.
Step 1: Sign in to your Google Ads account
To begin, sign in to your Google Ads account at https://ads.google.com/. If you don’t have a Google Ads account yet, you’ll need to create one before you can add a billing method.
Step 2: Navigate to the Billing section
Once you’re signed in, click on the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen to access the settings menu. From the settings menu, select “Billing & payments” to access the billing section of your account.
Step 3: Add a billing method
In the billing section, you’ll see a list of any billing methods that are currently associated with your account. To add a new billing method, click on the “Add payment method” button.
Step 4: Choose your payment method
Next, you’ll need to choose the type of payment method you want to add. Google Ads accepts a variety of payment methods, including credit cards, debit cards, and bank transfers. Select the payment method you want to use and follow the prompts to enter your payment information.
Step 5: Set a primary billing method
If you have multiple billing methods associated with your account, you’ll need to choose one as your primary billing method. This is the payment method that will be charged first when you have a balance due. To set your primary billing method, click on the payment method you want to use and then click on the “Set as primary” button.
Step 6: Review and save your billing method
Once you’ve entered all of your payment information and set your primary billing method, review your billing details to make sure everything is correct. If everything looks good, click on the “Save” button to add your billing method to your Google Ads account.
Adding a billing method to your Google Ads account is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. By following these steps, you’ll be able to start advertising on Google and reach your target audience in no time.
