    I set up a new adwords account for a friend. Just seen they have taken £5 as a one off activation fee.

    Do they not make enough? :rolleyes:

    The 5 is added to your credit if I remember it correctly.

    Its just there for verification purposes.

    Could be wrong as it's a while since I joined Adwords, but I think they give you it back as credit to spend on clicks?

    Activation fees is not refundable if you are closing the account its the meaning of non-refundable. But Google gives your activation fees as a credit where you can use to run campaign.

    It does specifically say 'not credited towards advertising', are you sure?

    I was planning on running an adwords campaign last night, but in the end I opted for Facebook instead
