Who qualifies for an Apple Search Ads line of credit
Some Apple Search Ads Advanced advertisers that meet certain criteria may be approved for an Apple line of credit. Once approved, they’ll receive a monthly billing summary and separate invoices for accrued campaign costs — the actual spend for the billing period. Payment remittance will be reflected on the monthly invoice and you can include P.O. numbers on invoice payments.
Note that the line of credit approval process takes time to complete, and approval isn’t guaranteed. If you’d like to start a campaign immediately, you can add a credit or debit card as your payment method until the Apple Search Ads team approves and transitions your account to a line of credit.
Line of credit funding isn’t available in some locations. Contact your Apple Search Ads client partners for more details.
Note that remittance details are also available on the Billing page. To view the banking details for your account, click the View Remittance Details link. Or refer to the bottom portion of your invoices and billing summaries. Remittance details will only be available after your first invoice has been processed.
Note that you can also add a P.O. number during campaign creation.
How budget orders work
Budget orders are available to invoiced Apple Search Ads Advanced customers only. They work in addition to campaign budget and daily spend cap to help you control costs. With a budget order, you can cap your total spend across campaigns in a campaign group, over a specified period of time, so you never exceed your total budget. This is especially useful if you or your clients have a set budget for app promotion efforts.
Pre-approved advertisers who are paying via monthly invoicing may also consolidate campaign invoices with budget orders. It simplifies campaign management for you, because at the end of the month, all campaigns tied to the same budget order appear on the same invoice.
