Hey, what’s up, guys? In this post, I want to share with you how to create a Google Ads account without entering your billing information, which is something Google Ads forces you to do normally if you create a brand new account.
Want to see it in action? Click this video for a closer look:
Outdated Method: Creating a New Google MCC Account
Now, unfortunately, a lot of the content and videos out there right now are outdated. So the method shown just no longer works because what they show is that you need to create an MCC. And in the MCC account, you’re going to click plus icon then you’re going to click on Create new account.
And before, this method did work, I’m not sure exactly when it stopped working, but I know at least a few months ago it was still working. So it was a pretty recent change Google Ads did.
And now, if you click Create new account, your account needs to have spent more than a thousand dollars and you need to have a history of policy compliance before you can create new accounts. So for those of you guys that are totally brand new, this method no longer works.
And so what I did was I created a brand new email, [email protected]. Everything is totally new and I’m going to share with you exactly how to bypass this billing screen.
All right. Are you ready? Let’s get to it.
New Method #1: Creating New Google Ads Account
So we’re going to click on New Google Ads Account and let me guide you through the steps.
So what we’re going to do is we’re going to click on Skip campaign creation because we can do that after. And then you will be prompted to enter your details, your country, your time zone. So I’m going to enter mine real quick. Canada, Canadian dollar.
And then let’s suppose we don’t want anything else or let’s suppose we do want to receive tips. We can click Yes and then we can click on Submit.
And sometimes your account will be instantly created without needing to enter billing. Other times it will not. In this case, I got lucky and I was able to just create my campaign.
New Method #2: Deleting & Creating Google Ads Account
But if not, then what you guys would have to do is you would have to delete this account. You would have to delete it. And then you would have to create a new account several, several times over until when you hit Yes to account settings options or you hit No, you will be able to create this new account.
So what I’m going to do is just go to this other account I have, [email protected]. And I’m going to click on Create new Google Ads account. We’re going to click on Create New Account. And then you want to follow through the same steps.
Sometimes you might get lucky, sometimes not. In this case, you don’t even have an option to skip the campaign process. So you can just click Next. You just keep on clicking Skip manually, keep clicking Skip, Leave campaign creation.
And then on the next screen, they’re asking you to confirm your account settings. You’re going to click on Continue.
And then see, for this account, now they’re asking you for payment details. So this one you can’t skip. So if they ask to confirm your account and payment settings, then you have to click your profile, you have to delete the account and then create a new one.
Or you can just go back to the MCC if you have it. And then from the MCC, you have the Create New Account option. Normally, it’s better to just delete it.
If we go back to the original account that we set up without billing, if you go into Billing, Billing setup, you can see that it’s still not set up. Everything’s blank. But I’m able to still come in here, click on Campaigns, and create new campaigns without needing to enter anything.
And yeah, that’s what it is. Thanks for reading. Hope this was helpful. Let me know in the comments if you need to know anything else or if something is unclear. And I’ll see you guys in the next blog.
