    Impossible to pay for google adwords...??


    I've tried with 2 visa cards from 2 different banks, both of them are
    getting declined, but the weird part is that both of the banks don't
    see EVEN an attempt to auth the credit card. So basicly for some reason
    google is blocking them on their side without even trying to contact the bank.
    And also they don't answer to my e-mails.
    When i use the live chat support they just answer that they will forward the issue to the tech team and they will contact me back, but guess what, that never happens!

    On their addwords help discussin group I read that a lot of other people are having the same problem, nobody got an answer.... and to make it even more weird, i can't even answer to these threads, they seem to be locked

    What im supposed to do in order to GIVE them my money?

    Any opinions will be highly appreciated cause im totally lost....

    This is obviously working for other people. So, try credit card #3 if you want to play the game. Also, be sure that you are typing your name, billing address and zip code exactly as they are on your statement.

    Yeah i know, the % of the people getting this is very small considering all the people using adwords, but still there is quite a number of people who can't pay.
    The info im entering is 100% correct, after all im paying for things online almost every day with those cards....


    Unfortunately i dont have 3rd card and i believe that even if i make on that wont help much, it will be much better if the support just tell the reason...?

    I dont want to jump to conclusions, but maybe you are banned? Have you been running Adwords or are you just trying to get started? Have you had an account before?

    This happened to me over 3 years ago and I was banned for life with no explanation. This is usually how you find out.

    From the adwords discussion group I understand that you are not in the USA. What country are you in and what type of credit card are you trying to use? Are they in your name and in same country as you?
