    Hey guys,

    read it all, please bear with me :)

    I got a question to those using debit card or prepaid cc to fund their adwords account. i ran into some problem funding my account.

    i use adwords once in a while. i always looked for coupon ($50, $100) n later activated it with $5 vcc or my own cc or whatnot. until recently, these $50/$100 coupon started to expire due to google suspecting people selling it yada yada yada.

    So few days ago I was in need of an adwords campaign, all i found was $25 promo code. this one is different, instead of just activating it with a $5 fee, it initially deducts $5 from the $25 leaving me with only $20. now i could still get my campaign running and make money with this $20 balance, but holy shit google requires you at least make a payment of $10 to get your ads running.

    So.. I got a prepaid cc that has $11 balance in it. google deducted $1 for cc verification. so now im left with $10. for some reason, when I want to make a one time $10 payment (required by google to run ads), my prepaid cc got denied. the cc verification got thru, the $10 payment was denied.

    So my question is..

    Does google charge extra $1 or any amount when making a certain amount of payment? coz that would be the case since i only have exactly $10 in my prepaid cc. but also, i read in some forums people complaining their cc got denied by google.

    can anyone using prepaid cc/debit card to fund their adwords share some thoughts here?

    Thanks. sorry if its too long :p
