Updated on Tue Oct 9, 2012

Google has taken another step closer to becoming  a bank with the launch of  AdWords Business Credit. The program, which will first launch for for United Kingdom customers and later roll out in the United States, offers credit to small business to boost their online ad spend with Google.

Google’s AdWords Business Credit line, which is handled by Barclay’s in the UK and Comenity Capital Bank in the US, is not available to everyone. You need to have received an application ID, which once you do, allows you to apply for the credit by visiting The application process takes place on Barclay’s site. Beware that information you submit is subject to their privacy policy.

For those eligible, here’s what you get:

  • A low, variable 11.9% APR
  • An ample credit limit for AdWords
  • No annual fee
  • Minimum monthly payments
  • 24/7 online support

While the decision to a launch in the U.K. seems interesting, Google has been running a pilot in the U.S. with 1,400 companies for more than a year.
