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.

Petra was instrumental in pulling all our clinic's web analytics into one easy to read, dynamic report that's accessible to me at any time, and works with our EXACT booking system.

This has allowed me to see, at a glance, what marketing initiatives are working, need tweaking, or changing altogether, saving me both time and money. I can't recommend her or her analytic services enough.

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.

I recently worked with Petra to improve my understanding of Google Tag Manager.

Petra not only provided a solid overview of GTM set up and event tracking, she also provided many tips on best practice, and answered the questions that I didn't even know to ask!

Petra is patient, fun to work with, and her analytical programming mind is hell bent on finding the BEST solution to any data, analytics or tracking problem.

Here at 1834 Hotels we centralise the marketing for many different hotels. It can be an enormous undertaking to monitor and track the performance of each one, especially when they are all on separate webpages.

Petra helped to resolve this difficulty by creating a central hub in Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics with Cross-domain tracking and Ecommerce as well. She created many valuable analytics dashboards and reports that draw from the centralized source. Now that we have all the analytics tracking working it has improved the accuracy of our reporting and the insights have helped develop better marketing strategies.

Petra’s skills and wealth of knowledge is fantastic. I would recommend Petra without hesitation.
