Today I had a client ask me how they can set up their Google Ads billing without a credit card.

Google Ads sets its rules on a ‘per country’ basis so you’d need to confirm if you can do this if you are residing outside of Australia, but it does look like Google Ads is now allowing PayPal payment of Google Ads advertising charges.

PayPal does allow you to direct debit from bank accounts as well as credit cards, so this is a good option if you only have a bank account available.

Additionally, Google Ads does allow you to make manual payments, but you can’t make manual payments without setting either credit card or PayPal as a billing option.

I haven’t tried this myself, but I suspect that if you were to get a pre-paid debit card you could use it just to set a card on the system. You could then make manual payments whenever you liked, as long as you kept ahead of your billing cycle so that you never became overdrawn.



Hopefully, that helps! Obviously, Google does want to be paid easily, so don’t expect to see too many unusual payment methods there any time soon, but at least Google Ads do offer a few options for those people who don’t have a credit card.

Working with Petra was a great experience, communication was easy and she is very organized. She also provided detailed reports of the work she had done and the results generated. We would definitely recommend her services.

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.

Hi Petra, Hope you are well, I checked out the Google Analytics and all I can say is AWESOME. You have essentially doubled her revenue in a month and the Google Ads seem to be popping off!

I engaged Petras services because I was looking for someone to manage my google ads for my ecommerce business. I got that and SO MUCH MORE.

I was always very intimidated by google ads. I simply could not get my head around how to run and optimise a successful campaign, so I did not use it.

Then someone recommended Petra and my world changed. She is very data orientated, very analytical and razor focused on the small details, everything I am not good at. I never ever log into my google ads because I know Petra and her trusty team are all over it, and my google ads continue to drive very profitable traffic to my ecommerce store.

Since having Petra on my team I have grown considerably and I get about a 10x ROAS from my google ad spend. She has an open door and always has time for me and my million questions.

To top that all off, she is also a super nice and friendly person and has become a customer and huge fan of my brand. What more could you want! .
