Affected Services and Features:

  • Google Cloud Console: Cloud console user interface received a warning notification for US customers with a self-serve billing account.

Regions/Zones: US


Google Cloud customers received a warning message on the Google Cloud console user interface and an email regarding an issue with processing their account payment. Impacted customers were redirected to update payment information. Attempts to update the primary payment method were unsuccessful, and the issues persisted. Initial investigation of this issue revealed the impact was triggered after an update to the payment configuration was released during the impact time frame.

Customer Impact:

Google Cloud customers received a warning message on the Google Cloud console user interface and an email: “Your payment information could not be processed. Visit the payment overview page to make sure your payment information is up to date and to pay any outstanding charges.”

  • After customers clicked on the “Fix It” option, a pop-up message was displayed, prompting them to update their primary payment method.
  • Customers were unable to fix the account after updating the primary payment method and the warning message reoccurred post the customer action.

After resolution, the account warning message disappeared, and the account state was set back to the proper Payments setting.

Additional details:

Our engineering team has mitigated the customer impact after complete rollback of the changes that triggered the issue.
