Automatic Payments enable you to spend incrementally as activity progresses

Payment will be automatic, and you’ll be billed once you reach your billing threshold, or upon your monthly billing date, whichever comes first. 

Business settings

Control how you set up your business and manage all administrative tasks, in the Nextdoor Ads Manager Business Settings tab.  

Business Settings is where you can: manage which teams and users have access to each account, add or remove user access, update your billing methods for each advertiser, and create new advertisers.

The dashboard will allow you to see an overview  of the status and performance of your campaigns, ad groups and specific ads.

This is also where you can toggle on or off your  campaigns, ad groups, and ads, and where you can view spend and metrics over any given time frame.


Optimize your ad performance by using your customer data to reach current customers that are active on Nextdoor.
