Postpay to Prepay
They want me to cancel and reopen my account?

Today we switched over our Adwords account administration from the marketing firm we had been using to in-house. I'm finding out now that they had been using postpay billing, which has a maximum threshold of $500.

I want to change to a prepay option but they are telling me I have to close the account and restart it in order to achieve this, but isn't that a bad idea? Won't I lose account history and therefore quality score if I do this?

Hey Murdoch,

Unfortunately what you've run into is what you'll have to deal with. Google does not currently allow an account to switch between pre and post-pay: [google.com...]

I would assume this is a common switching cost that is often overlooked when switching from agency to agency or from in-house to out of house or vice-versa.

Good luck building up your quality scores!
