There are times when you may need to change the Google Billing account associated with a Terra Billing project - if there was a change to the funding source, for example. If you are the Terra Billing project owner, and Google Cloud Billing account user, you can take the following steps to change the Billing account.
Changing billing: Step-by-step instructions
1. Go to the Billing page from the main navigation at the top left of any page in Terra (Main navigation > Your name > Billing).
2. Select a Billing project from the list on the left-hand side of the screen.
Note that you will only see billing projects if you have owner or user permission on the Cloud Billing account! If you don't see the Cloud Billing account, see the troubleshooting section below.
3.Click the Change Account button. You will see a list of all the Google Billing accounts you have access to.
4. Select the one you want to use with the project and click OK.
Your project is now funded by the chosen account!
Generally, this is a permissions problem due to one of two issues: 1) you do not have sufficient (or any) permission on the Cloud Billing account or 2) the user (Terra) ID is different from the Google ID on the Billing account.

This lets you have full control over your Billing and is a good option if you are comfortable working in the GCP console. You can use a personal credit card or bank account (and get reimbursed, if your work on Terra is grant-funded) or an institutional credit card or another account.
