I have recently started an Adwords campaign.
I have set up daily limit to be fairly low but I was wondering to when will Google charge me for this?
I have started my campaign around 5 days ago. Setup fee was already charged, but when will the rest be charged?
Thanks

Google usually charges once a month, but first you need to develpe a history with them. I think they start with giving you $50 in credit and after successfully charging that they gradually increase you credit limit until until you reach one that covers your monthly click charges.

So they will not charge me until I reach $50?
Or they will after the certain period, regardles of how much money I spent?

They charge at least once a month regardless of you spend.

They debit my card about every 2 weeks it seems. Even though they said a month. Maybe I have to be with them longer. There doesn't seem to be a set date that they take money out of my account. I wish there was so I can better balance my checking account.

Hey,

They debit my card about every 2 weeks it seems. Even though they said a month. Maybe I have to be with them longer. There doesn't seem to be a set date that they take money out of my account. I wish there was so I can better balance my checking account.

I found when I was spending more money they would do this too. I was with them for a little bit then, (almost a year), but I hadn't spent like that in awhile so they took it out sooner, instead of the end of the month.

All the Best,

C.K.

Well if I joined a week ago, will they charge me at the end of the month, that is June, or after 30 days of using Adwords?

I am almost guaranteed it will be at the end of June. If you are a new user, and you spend a bunch of money at the start of the month... They will take payments off in the middle and at the end. One month I spent like $900 bucks as a new user, and they took 3 payments out.

I think this is because I was a new user.

All the Best,

C.K.

Perhaps I can clarify this one a bit.

They charge at least once a month regardless of you spend.

This is true, but is really only part of the story.

You will be charged either when you accrue a certain dollar value in clicks (as explained in the link below), or when 30 days have passed - whichever occurs first.

Please follow the link below for details on the dollar amounts at which you're billed, from the AdWords FAQ:
