How to set up manual payment
Last updated: June 2024

When you create your TikTok Ads Manager account, you will need to select a payment type. Your account's payment type will determine how and when your account is charged. With manual payment, you will need to add a balance to your account before delivering your ads. Any charges will be deducted from your account balance as your ads run. Once your account balance runs out, your ads will stop running.


Note: You are unable to change your billing back to manual payment after you set it to automatic payment.


The following changes are allowed:

  • Changing from Manual Payment to Automatic Payment

  • Changing from Manual Payment to Monthly Invoicing

  • Changing from Automatic Payment to Monthly Invoicing


How to set up manual payment

To set up manual payment:

  1. When creating your TikTok Ads Manager account, select Manual payment.

  2. Go to the payment page, and click add balance using the supported payment methods.

    • Note: The top-up limit per transaction is $20 - $50,000 in USD and equal in other currencies, and acceptable payment types depend on the country in which you registered your account.


If the transaction is successful, you will see a new amount in your account balance. If the transaction failed, learn more about troubleshooting failed payments.
