Hi! It’s Chris with Shopping Cart Apps. Today, we’re going to cover adding a payment method to Microsoft Advertising formerly known as Bing Ads. As Microsoft Ads is a pay-to-play platform, this is a needed step to get your ads out the door and in front of your prospective customers.

So let’s get started.

  • ·Login to Microsoft Advertising.
  • ·Select your email address (top right next to the gear icon).
  • ·Select Accounts & Billing.
  • ·Select Payment Method.
  • ·Select Add card.
  • ·Update your business address and location if necessary.
  • ·Select Save.
  • ·Select your billing country. (If this is your first payment method, it will default to your primary payment method.)
  • ·Select Save.
  • ·Enter your card information.
  • ·Select Save.

You’re now all set. 

Unless you have some free ad credits, which we can cover in another session, adding a payment method will allow your active campaigns to begin displaying ads. Once this occurs, your card on file will be charged no later than every 30 days. 

We always recommend to keep your campaign budgets low if this is your first time or if you’re trying out a new campaign type so you can get a feel for your ad spend and the rate at which your card will be charged and for how much.

That’s all for now. 

Until next time. Keep it simple, keep it fun and keep at it.
