    Hello,

    I tried two times using voucher and both time i am unsuccessful..
    Country - India

    First time i used $75 Adwords voucher, and had put my original address and details, but the Status shows Approved but when i take my mouse on that it says - This ad is not eligible to run on the search network. - ( Check Screen Shot Attached )

    Than again i tried, i made new gmail account and created adwords with fake details ( details were not mine but looked like original ) and used new $100 voucher.. again same problem as above.

    What can be the reason?? Why I am not able to run the campaign? Is it because of country ?

    Any help? what i can try to make it work?

    Thanks

    Cool999,

    Good question you have here. It would seem that as long as you have the voucher you should be able to run the ads. Google however requires that users submit credit card information even if a voucher is being used. If you have not submitted payment information, your ad will not run.

    Other reasons your ad will not run (and will also not show as approved) include use of prohibited phrases, use of trademarked words, promotion of illegal content, products or services.

    Check out Google's policy about halfway down the page at this link,

    This link also gives good information on promotional codes and vouchers,

    Let me know if this has helped you,

    You sure the vouchers are valid? Sounds stupid, but you never know

    I can see in the screenshot it says the campaign is not enabled. LOL please check that it is

    If your account is legit and site is legit contact adwords support, that is the best option they can look into the account and see what is wrong. Good Luck!
