Manage your payment methods for Facebook ads

You have the option to choose a variety of payment methods when you run Facebook ads. You can always manage your payment methods from your Payment Settings in Ads Manager.

Remember, if you share either your payment method or ad account with others, be sure to check with them if you don’t recognize charges on your bill. Often times in this scenario, another person has run separate ads using your payment method or ad account.
