How do I switch my payment settings?

See how a guided workflow helps you switch how you pay for Bing Ads (be it prepay, postpay threshold, or monthly invoice billing).
Note

Super Admins can change payment settings. Standard Users can also change payment settings, so long as there's a payment method already on file. For more information, see How do I give someone access to my Bing Ads account?.

Pay now or pay later: You can change your payment setting for Bing Ads. You can switch from a prepay account to a postpay threshold account, and vice versa. If you've met eligibility requirements for monthly invoice billing, you can also switch to and from a monthly invoice account. (Want help on what you pay with instead? See How do I pay for Bing Ads? for the complete list of payment methods.)

Things to keep in mind when you switch payment settings

Switching from Switching to Notes
Prepay Postpay threshold Any prepaid balance remaining on your account will be carried forward as a credit. We'll deduct advertising costs from that credit. Once the balance is exhausted, we'll charge your primary payment method when you hit your payment amount threshold or your monthly billing date, which ever comes first.
Prepay Monthly invoice Any prepaid balance remaining on your account will be carried forward as a credit. We'll apply that credit towards the charges in your next monthly invoice. You should also create an insertion order so that your ads can serve once you switch payment settings.
Postpay threshold Prepay Any amount due must be paid. You should also add prepay funds and enable auto-recharge to help ensure that your account is funded.
Postpay threshold Monthly invoice You can choose to pay any amount due immediately or you can carry it over to your next monthly invoice, so long as the amount is within your credit limit. If the amount due is larger than your credit limit, then you'll need to first settle what you owe in order to switch payment settings.
Monthly invoice Prepay You'll need to pay your final monthly invoice, which will be sent separately once it's ready on the 1st of the following month. You should also add prepay funds and enable auto-recharge to help ensure that your account is funded.
Monthly invoice Postpay threshold You'll need to pay your final monthly invoice, which will be sent separately once it's ready on the 1st of the following month. You'll also need to make sure you have a primary payment method on file (such as a card) to cover postpay charges.
