Automatic payment allows you to easily create Ads and pay at regular intervals. You will be charged for Ads each time (1) your outstanding balance exceeds your threshold amount and (2) it’s the first day of the month and you have an outstanding balance. You can see your threshold amount on the Ad Billing page in your Partner Dashboard.
Let’s say an advertiser has a threshold of $100 and spends $150 on Ads in one month. They would be charged $100 whenever their balance hits $100. They’ll then be charged for the remaining outstanding balance of $50 on the first day of the following month.
In a second scenario, let’s say an advertiser has a threshold of $100 and spends $75 on Ads in one month. In this case, since they didn’t spend more than their billing threshold, they’ll be charged the outstanding balance of $75 on the first day of the following month.
