Create a Google Cloud Billing account

Overview

A Google Cloud Billing account is used to define who pays for a given set of Google Cloud resources and Google Maps Platform APIs. Access control to a Cloud Billing account is established by IAM roles.

A Google Cloud Billing account is connected to a DoiT International billing profile. This page explains how to create a Google Cloud Billing account directly from the Cloud Management Platform (CMP) and link it to your company's billing profile.

Your user account must be linked to at least one billing profile in the CMP.

You can open the Manage billing accounts page in the Google Cloud console directly from the CMP, using either of the following approaches:

  • Select the three dots menu () at the rightmost end of the asset entry and then select Manage billing account.

  • Select the billing account name of the asset entry and then select Manage account.
