How to pay for Google Ads with Bitmama Virtual Cards

Online advertising has become the primary brand awareness and customer acquisition for most businesses today. One of the most used platforms is Google alongside Facebook and it’s easy to see why. Google boasts billions of search users daily and over 90% market share, therefore, it cannot be ignored when advertising. Unfortunately, the FX translation ban on domestic cards in Nigeria and limits in many other countries have left business owners wondering how to pay for Google Ads and other international subscriptions.

Bitmama virtual cards allow businesses to spend up to $20,000 paying for ads to ensure their sales stay up amidst restrictions on domestic cards. 

This article explores exactly how it works. 

What are Google ads?

Google ads are simply an advertising service that allows businesses directly target potential customers online. The service is run by Google and helps connect businesses with billions of customers around the world. 

Google ads run across various platforms including Google search engine result pages, YouTube, Google Play, Google Maps and third-party websites. 

What are the available Google ads payment methods? 

Before December 2023, your Naira MasterCard or Visa Card was easily a solution to the problem of how to pay for Google ads. However, FX transactions are limited on all naira cards as you are now required to pay using a dollar card. 

Method 1 

One option is to go on the long journey of opening a dollar account where you have to provide a host of information and sometimes, proof of employment as well as guarantors before the bank will grant your request. 

Method 2

On the other hand, you can simply open a Bitmama account and create a virtual dollar card within minutes. Bitmama virtual cards allow you to spend up to $20,000 on online purchases.
