Google Launches Credit Card for Online Ad Purchases

July 28, 2011

Google Inc. is launching a credit card designed specifically for its advertising customers. Google reportedly is offering its clients the AdWords Business credit card, which carries what it calls a “competitive” interest rate. The card is targeted at small and midsize businesses that could be experiencing cash flow issues but still feel the need to market via Google’s search engine. The AdWords card is a MasterCard issued by World Financial Capital Bank. The card’s 8.99 percent annual percentage rate is the ongoing rate, according to Google, not an introductory rate.
