Recently I tried to change the credit card used as a payment method in my Facebook Ads account. This may seem like a straightforward thing to do, but apparently it's not :).
So adding the card itself wasn't the problem, but when I tried to make it primary, so that facebook can charge it automatically this error appeared:
"This credit card can't be set as your account's primary payment method, because your account is set up to be billed after your ads have delivered. This setup can't be changed. Please try a different card or payment method."
From the little research I did on this topic, it seems that facebook accounts can be set to different charge methods, before delivery, after delivery etc, but this can't be changed after the account is created, you have to create new one...
