I can't believe I have spotted it first?! This is a great new feature and has been heavily demanded. I bet it was really simple to implement and I am suprised it took so long.

I have also noticed that I get sent emails when payments bounce - this is fantastic! Only thing that is missing is email notifications of good payments with attached copy of invoice.

Also seems that you cannot add an account to your MCC even if you know the password, they must log into their account and approve it.

Where are you seeing this? I don't see it in my account.

I saw this a little while ago.

As with anything Google does, it is being rolled out to a select few first and is gradually being made available to all users.

"Billing Preferences" -> "Backup Payment Details"

Admitantly, I am only seeing this in newly setup accounts.

I'm not seeing it either yet. I was waiting FOREVER for them to do this and mentioned it a few times in the features I like to see thread. Awesome! That's one less thing to worry about!

Good spot - I know this has been a much requested feature.

Glad to see Google continuing to improve on the basics (billing) as well as the advanced features (the new keyword tool seems to have been tweaked lately).

FYI - AWA is currently unable to post (and missing forum81), but will be back when some technical issues are sorted out

Great spot kmander! I think you might be a bit surprised, though, how not-simple the simple seeming things can be sometimes, when you get right down to - and at scale. ;)

I have also noticed that I get sent emails when payments bounce - this is fantastic!

Hmmm. Now these have been going out for at least a couple of years, I think (though not sure of the precise date...) Have you not been getting them? Does your email program perhaps filter them as spam?

kea12345, you are right on the money in this case. (Hey, I think that is sort of a pun!)

Thanks for the kind words, eWhisper. And thanks also for the brief notice below your post about my extended absence.

As a coda, until the technical issues are fully sorted, I will not be able to post regularly - and unhappily predict no posts at all tomorrow.
