Compare AdWords Express and Google Ads
You can have your ads populated through most of the Google Display
Network with either advertising product.
Targeted ads attract and engage potential customers and you can use
Google Ads or Google Adwords Express for your campaigns but there is no
advantage to using both products.
Because using both Google Ads and AdWords Express can complicate your
ad management and cause your ads to compete against each other, using
only one of these advertising tools at a time is recommended.
Here is how Google offers a free website. You advertise with Google
Adwords Express which is already
integrated into Google My Business.
Your Google Adwords Express Dashboard Tabs
- Business info
- Contact Phone Numbers For Assistance
- The billing tab is where you set up your campaign.
Costs and Payments
With AdWords Express, pay only for the actual clicks
and calls that your ad receives.
Your costs may vary from day to day, but you won’t be charged more than
your maximum monthly budget.
You’ll pay only for clicks or calls from your AdWords Express ads. The total
amount that you spend in a month won’t exceed your maximum monthly

- How much-competing advertisers in
your area are spending
- How relevant your ad is to a person’s Google search
- How likely a person’s search will result in a sale
No activation fee
AdWords Express has no activation fee.
There may be a minimum transaction amount
when you make a manual payment.
Automatic payments are a payment setting in AdWords Express.
Using this setting, you first accrue advertising costs, then have those costs
automatically charged to your primary payment method.
If remembering when to make payments isn’t on your list of favorite things
to do, the automatic payment setting is a great choice.
You’ll set up your billing information once, and payments are automatically
processed — this means you don’t have to worry that your ads will stop
running if you forget to make a payment.
What you pay with: This is what you used to pay your costs, such as a credit
card, and is known as a payment method.
Some payment methods are only available in certain countries, so you
might see different options depending on where your business is located.
