About the new Billing Summary page

The current Summary and Transactions pages are merging into one new Google Ads Billing Summary page, allowing you to view and understand your billing info in one place. Google started upgrading accounts over to the new pages in October 2021 and estimates the process will be complete by the end of Summer 2022.

The new Billing summary contains all of your transactions, therefore the current Transactions page will be removed. The new page is designed to provide a summary of your payments as well as a breakdown of the campaigns activity those payments covered.

Accounts with Automatic Payments setting

Summary cards

A User Interface demonstrating various automatic payment features.

Next automatic payment card: Shows the potential date of your next automatic payment and your threshold amount (which if reached before the next automatic payment date will trigger a charge).

Last payment card: Highlights the amount and date of the last successful payment, and the form of payment (credit card, bank account) used. It will also display pending payments.

How automatic payments work card: Provides a detailed explanation of how payments are made when using an automatic payment setting.

Current month card

A User Interface screen demonstrating the current balance on an account.

The current month card shows your current balance, and a simplified breakdown of how your balance is calculated. For example, the July 2020 card shows the following:

  • Balance from previous month: $104.15 is the unpaid balance carried over (or amount owed) from the previous month, in this case, June.
  • Net cost: $571.20 is the cost of campaigns and taxes/fees (if applicable) in July minus any adjustments and credits you may have received.
  • Payments: $500 is the total amount in payments received in July.
  • Current balance: $175.35 is the current unpaid balance (amount owed) that will be charged either on the date displayed in the next automatic payment card or when you reach your threshold limit.

To see a full breakdown of how your balance was calculated for the month, click the [ v ] to expand the section.

In the expanded view, you’ll find more details on the current month’s activity:

  • Balance from June: This is the unpaid balance from June that was carried over to July. In the example, your current month started with a balance of $104.15.
  • Net cost: This section details your current month’s activity including:
    • Breakdown of cost per each campaign
    • Adjustments received, if any. For any invalid traffic credits that you receive, you will see an additional line stating the original month of service in which the invalid traffic occurred. You may see more than one line for invalid traffic credits if they correspond to different months of service. You can also click on View details to see a campaign breakdown for the credits.
    • Credits used from any active promotions. (You can now also see how much of your promo credit was used and how much remains).
    • An estimate of applicable taxes and fees, if any (final taxes and fees are calculated at the end of the month)
  • Payments: This is the total amount paid in July. Here you can see all completed, failed, pending, and declined payments. Each completed payment links to its payment receipt which opens in a new tab.
  • Current balance: This is the amount that is currently unpaid.

In the far right column you’ll see the "Documents" section that shows when the documents for the month will be available (typically by the 5th business day of the month). Just below the documents section, if you have any active promotions in your account, you will see the Promotions section, which contains a link to the promotions page where you can see information about any active or used promo codes.
