I am writing this post for those who received an email like the below screenshot from the Google AdSense team and wish to close the Google Adsense account. A few days ago by mistake, I have submitted the same domain with a different Google account on Google AdSense.
After reading this email, I was trying to cancel the Google AdSense account which I have created recently. I was looking for an option to cancel the account from the navigation but all options are disabled. There is no way to click on the Account option.
I have spent few hours on how to cancel the Google AdSense account and finally, I found one article on google and after following the steps mentioned in that article, I received an email from google that letting me that Google AdSense: Your account was canceled.
So in this article, I will show you how to cancel your Google AdSense account so please follow the steps as per the screenshots.
Go to google.com and then select the account which needs to be close for the Google AdSense and after that click on the “Manage your Google Account”.
Step 2 & 3:
After clicking on the “Manage your Google account” you will be redirected to the Home screen. So now click on the “Payment & Subscriptions” option.
Now you have to click on “Manage payment methods” under the Payment method section.
Now I am assuming that you are at the “Payment methods” tab but you have to go to the “Settings” tab. Scroll down and you will find the “Close payment profile” option so click on that URL.
One pop-up will be opened and there you need to select the appropriate option. So click on the Continue button.
Once you finished the steps, go to your Gmail account and you will receive two emails as per below screenshots:
You have closed your Google payments profile
Google AdSense: Your account was canceled
It will take some time to reflect in your google account so be patient.
