Google Adwords Updates Billing Tab with More Options

New Google Adwords Billing Options

New Google Adwords Billing Options

I was recently walking a client through the billing setup process and quickly realized Adwords had made some changes to the Billing options tab. You will now  have more control over when and how much you are being charged. Although the billing method and forms of payment haven’t changed, some of the  billing methods have new names. Here’s a down and dirty summary of the changes and added benefits of the updated Billing tab:

  1. Postpay is now called “automatic payment” and gives you more flexibility – You can now choose to initiate a payment to your account any time with the Make a Payment feature and use any form of payment available with your country and currency settings.
  2. Prepay is now called “manual payments,” but it continues to work the same way. The “Make payments” link you formerly used has been removed. Now, you’ll start the payment process by clicking the “Make a payment” button on your billing summary page.
  3. Direct debit is now called “automatic payment by bank account.” Your funds will be debited from your bank account
  4. Add multiple forms of payment to your account and switch between using them at your convenience.
  5. Use different addresses for your business and your forms of payment. Plus, each form of payment can have a different billing address.
  6. Improved help content in the new billing tab and help center

Here’s a link if you’d like to view some examples and learn how to use the new features in more detail. Have you had a chance to use the new billing features yet? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
