How to Delete An Adwords Account
Google Adwords is an ad program offered by Google. You can sign up for the program and run ads on other websites for a fee. The ads bring in traffic to your site and, hopefully, increase your earnings beyond the cost of the ads. There are two types of Adwords accounts. The first allows users to pay for ads before they are run. When the money in the account runs out, the ads don’t run and there is no need to cancel. If you’ve paid in advance you can, however, delete your Adwords account and request a refund. The other type of account is post-paid, which means the user pays for the ads after they’ve run. In this case you can cancel your account, but you are responsible for the cost of all ads to that point.
Deleting My Account: Step By Step
Pre-paid accounts – Sign in to your Adwords account at http://adwords.google.com/. Click MyAccount and Preferences. Click on Request Refund in Account Cancellations. You must fill out the form that appears and click Submit. Your account is now deleted and you’ll receive a refund for any money in the account at the time of cancellation.
Post-paid accounts – Visit your Adwords account at http://adwords.google.com/ and sign in. Pay the remaining balance on your account. Navigate to MyAccount and Preferences and click the Cancel This Account link. A pop-up will appear. At the bottom of the pop-up, click Cancel My Account.
Is There A Cancellation Fee?
No cancellation fee is charged when you cancel your Adwords account, but there is a fee to be paid if you have a post-paid account. That fee is the sum of all monies charged to your account before the closure. You will not be allowed to delete your Adwords account until you pay your balance in full.
