If your ad account is set up for manual payments, you’ll have to put some money into a prepaid balance before you can buy and run Facebook ads. We’ll deduct from the cash you added once a day as your adverts run after you’ve added funds. In your payment settings, you can add funds to your prepaid balance at any time.
Before you begin
Add money to your Facebook ad account’s prepaid balance
To add funds to your ad account’s prepaid balance:
Depending on where you reside and the payment method you use to add cash to your prepaid balance, the funds may be added immediately or may require additional steps and time. You might need to go to a bank to get the funds added, for example. It may take several days for your bank to process the funds before they show in your ad account. When funds are added to your prepaid account, they will display in the Billing section’s transaction list. You can always check the transactions to see when the funds were applied to your ad account.
Once you add funds to your prepaid balance, it won’t expire and you won’t be able to withdraw it. We’ll deliver any active ads based on the budget you’ve chosen until your balance is used up. If you close your account while you still have an active balance, any leftover funds will be non-refundable, except where required by law.
