Local currency for billing and automatic payments

Overview

The article lists countries and regions where Cloud Billing accounts are charged in local currency, as well as the payment methods accepted in each country or region to pay for Google Cloud costs.

Payment methods are described in more detail in Add, remove, or update a payment method. Note that your Google payments profile might allow other payment methods that are not accepted as a valid form of payment for your Cloud Billing account. These forms of payment might be valid to be used to pay for Google Play and other non-Google Cloud products.

The payment methods described in this article apply only to self-serve, online Cloud Billing accounts, and not to accounts paid by invoice. If your Cloud Billing account is set up as an invoicing account and you would like to learn how to pay your Google Cloud invoice, visit Make a payment to an invoiced Cloud Billing account.

About currencies and Cloud Billing accounts

Each Cloud Billing account operates in a single currency, which you cannot change after you create your Cloud Billing account. If you need a Cloud Billing account to operate in a currency different than the currency of your existing Cloud Billing account, you will need to set up a new Cloud Billing account.

  • When Google charges in a local, non-USD currency, we convert Google Cloud prices from USD into the applicable local currency pursuant to the conversion rates published by leading financial institutions.
  • The exchange rates are set at the beginning of every month.
  • If you export your Cloud Billing data to BigQuery, you can access to the specific exchange rate information applied to your billing account. Look for the currency_conversion_rate field available in your daily cost detail data export and your pricing data export.

Visit our Exchange rates documentation for more information.

If your country or region is not listed here, check the payment options tool for more information.
