Know your billing options

When setting up your payment information for Google Ads, there are 2 things to keep in mind: Your payment setting and your payment method. Your payment method is how you pay, and your payment setting is when you pay.

In general, your country and currency determine the payment methods and payment settings that are available for your account. But there may be cases when a payment method or setting that’s normally available for your country or currency becomes temporarily unavailable for your account.

Payment setting: how you pay

This is how you make your payments. Your choices are:

  • Automatic payments: You're automatically charged after your ads run, either on the first day of each month or when you reach a preset amount (known as your threshold), whichever comes first. You can also make payments at any time to control your costs. Note: Google no longer accepts prepaid cards for automatic payments.
  • Manual payments: Pay when you want for future costs. With this setting, you make a payment before your ads run. Then, as your ads run and you accrue costs, the credit from your payment will decrease. When your payment is used up, your ads will stop running.
    The manual payments setting isn't available for new accounts in the countries and territories listed below. If you can't see this option when creating your account, you’ll need to proceed with the automatic payments option to finish creating your account. Your account can't be switched to manual payments in these countries and territories.

Value Added Tax (VAT) is a 5% tax on goods and services that is paid to the Taiwanese tax authority.

The exception is that if your payment method is credit card (on either automatic or manual payment settings), you won't be charged VAT, and Google will not issue you a GUI.

Payment method: what you pay with

This is what you use to pay your bills, such as a credit or debit card. The choices available to you will depend on your country (that is, the country of your business address) and the currency you've selected for your Google Ads account. See your payment options.

Your documents and payment information

By clicking the gear icon and choosing Billing, you can see your transaction history, settings, payment methods, and billing profile information.

When setting up your payment information for Google Ads, there are 2 things to keep in mind: Your payment setting and your payment method.

Payment setting: how you pay

This is how you make your payments. Your choices are:

  • Automatic payments: You're automatically charged after your ads run, either on the first day of each month or when you reach a preset amount (known as your threshold), whichever comes first. You can also make payments at any time to control your costs. Note: Google no longer accepts prepaid cards for automatic payments.
  • Manual payments: Pay when you want for future costs. With this setting, you make a payment before your ads run. Then, as your ads run and you accrue costs, the credit from your payment will decrease. When your payment is used up, your ads will stop running.
    The manual payments setting isn't available for new accounts in the countries and territories listed below. If you can't see this option when creating your account, you’ll need to proceed with the automatic payments option to finish creating your account. Your account can't be switched to manual payments in these countries and territories.

  • Monthly invoicing (credit line): Some businesses are eligible for a Google credit line if they meet certain requirements. With this setting, you accrue costs first, then receive a monthly invoice. You pay for these costs with a check or bank transfer. It is required that you make payments within the timeframe that you've agreed to with Google, according to terms and conditions. Learn more about monthly invoicing
