Google Ads can be confusing, even the small tasks, which is why we’re here to help. A crucial part of the process that stumps people is ensuring that their billing information is filled out—which needs to be in place before your ads will run.

Unsure what you will be billed for? Let’s clarify before we walk you through the process of setting it up. 

In short, Google will bill you only for the actual clicks that your ad receives, which means that you only pay when someone clicks on your ad. While the volume and cost per click will vary day to day, you will never be charged more than your monthly budget that you’ve set for your business.
