MCC Sign Up

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I have had an adwords account for quite a while, just using it for access to the Keyword Planner.

 

Today I have cancelled my account as I want to use the email to sign up for the MCC instead.

 

I try and sign up at MCC but it says my email is already in use on an adwords account. I then sign into my old adwords account to see a message saying that I have cancelled this account?

 

I have waited a few hours and it is still doing the same thing. Anybody know the solution?

 

Thanks

Hi Chris.

First you need to contact Google representative. Ask him to restore your account. Assuming your current AdWords account is associated with account1@gmail.com
Step 1=>Now create a new gmail account, say account2@gmail.com
Step 2=> Login to your existing adwords account, account1@gmail.com
Step3=> Click on the Gear icon, on top right corner, Go to Account seetings and then click on Account access(Left Side menu)
Step 4=> Add account2@gmail.com as administrator
Step5=> Now Login again to accoun2@gmail.com, check email, accept the request and follow the steps mentioned in email

Now account2@gmail.com has the administrative access of your existing account.
Go to adwords and login with account2@gmail.com, Go to account setting=>account access=> revoke access of account1@gmail.com.

Now create a new MCC account with account1@gmail.com.
