How to Add Payment Information/Admins to Your Facebook Ads Account

{Since this is a common question we get when onboarding new clients, here are the step-by-step instructions for adding payment and admin roles to your ad account.}

When setting up a new ad account for the first time, you will need to add a form of payment (credit card, Paypal, debit card, etc.) before we / you can run your first ad.

Although Facebook's interface is sometimes less than intuitive, we have a picture-by-picture guide to make it real simple.

Step 1. Log In to Facebook.
Go to www.Facebook.com and enter your login information at the top right corner. *Make sure that the account you're logging into has access to the business page as an "Admin" so that you will be able to access the correct account.*


Step 2. Go To Ads Manager.
Once logged in, you will see a small triangular arrow on the top right of the page. Click that arrow, and then select either "Manage Ads" if you have ever run an ad before, OR "Create Ad" if you have never run an ad before.






Step 3. Select The Account
Once inside Ads Manager, select the account that needs payment info. If you have never run an ad before, you will likely incur a screen that looks like it's asking you to create an ad immediately. Just hit "Close" on the bottom left.



4. Go To Billing & Payment Settings.
From inside of the correct ad account, there will be a menu option on the top left of the page that says "Ads Manager." Click that button to open a whole host of other options, and then select "Billing and Payment Methods" over on the right side under "Settings."



5. Add Your Preferred Method of Payment
When you're done, hit save, and voila! Now we / you can begin running ads for your business.

Need to add a partner to your ads manager account? Here's how to do that.
- From your ads manager account, select the business page you wish to modify.
- Once inside the business account, select "Ads Manager" on the top left of the page to open a whole list of options.




















- Select "All Tools" on the bottom right to see more options.
- Select "Ad Account Settings" and you will then see "Add a User"
 



Once you are done here, hit "Submit" and you are done.
