How to add payment methods for Facebook Ads

Facebook Banner

When you create ads with Ads manager, you’ll be prompted to add a payment method before you can publish your first ad. You can add or change the payments for your ad account from your payment settings.

Note: If your ad account is set up for manual payments, you can't add a payment method using these steps. Instead, add money to your ad account using a manual payment method. Also, some payment methods aren't available to use. For example, PayPal.

Before you begin

You have to be an admin of the ad account. Otherwise, you may encounter an “invalid parameter” error.
Make sure that the payment method you’re trying to add is an accepted payment option for Facebook Ads.

How to add payment method in Ads Manager

1. Go to your settings
2. In the payment section, click Add Payment Method

3. Select the payment method that you want to add and click next
4. Follow any additional instructions to add your payment method

The new payment method is added to your account

If you have multiple payment methods saved to your ad account, you can set up a primary payment method. Your primary payment method will be charged first when you make a payment for your ads.

If you share your payment method or ad account with others, make sure that you check with them when you don’t recognise the charges on your bill. It’s possible that someone you’ve shared information with has run ads using your payment method or ad account.
