New Google AdWords Advertisers Can't Use Direct Debit Option

Aug 6, 2010 • 8:00 am | comments (2) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdWords

Those of you signing up for Google AdWords for the first time, or setting up a brand new account, can not currently use Direct Debit option for payment.

A Google AdWords Help thread has Googler, Bindu confirming this as a known issue. Bindu said it won't be fixed for a few weeks:

We are aware that currently new advertisers signing-up for AdWords are unable to choose Direct Debit as a form of payment. Please note that this payment option is only temporarily unavailable for new sign-ups. We have escalated this to our engineers who’re working to resolve this on high priority.

This issue should be resolved in a few weeks. As a workaround, you may choose any other forms of payments.

A Direct Debit is an instruction from a customer to their bank or building society authorising an organisation to collect varying financial amounts from their account. This can be used to ensure regular, safe and efficient payments of anything from household bills to charitable donations.
