You need to put one card to create your billing account; this is only for security. And click on "Submit and enable billing."

NOTE: Google provides credit for a trial period. This is just a backup billing method just in case you use more (which is nearly impossible with the range you can cover using the credit google gives). For more information click on this link.

The good news is that if you exceed that free limit, this means you have more people using your app and you're growing, in this case, you only need to authorize Google to charge you following the steps of this video.
