Hey,

 

My friend invited me to share his Adwords account. I got an invite link and accepted YES by clicking the link in the e-mail.

 

But after i click to accept, i get the screen "Create Google Account".

I then choose "I have an email address and password I already use with Google services like AdSense, Gmail, YouTube or Google+."

 

But i get the following error:

And when i try to create a new account i always get error "the email address you entered is not valid." No matter what e-mail i write.

 

Can anyone help me?

The Gmail address you are entering is already associated with an AdWords account. You can't use it, otherwise when you login, Google wouldn't know which account to show you.

Solution: Create a new Google account. Get a new invitation sent to the new Gmail address. Login in to that Gmail and click on the new invitation link.

Hi Toomas,

From the snapshot it is very clear that you are already having an adwords account with the associated email which you want to link.
For your information, its an individual adwords account that is why you can not link to other adwords account.

You can go with 2 options:

1st is create a new email and send invitation to that new email from another account and now accept the invitation from the link in your mail inbox without prior accessing the adwords account directly from the new email.

2nd is if you want only that particular email to link then please follow these threads:

Hi Toomas K,

As RobSkelton stated above, you are not able to login because looks like you already have AdWords account associated with this email id of yours.

I would advise you to create one new Google account and associate it with MCC account (aka Manager Account) to access multiple AdWords accounts under one email address. https://www.google.com/adwords/manager-accounts/

Please let us know if you have more doubts!
