adwords read only access question

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I set up a separate email address so that a client could grant me read only access. 

 

He granted access and google sent me the invite. 

 

When I go in to accept the invite on adwords, adwords tells me that "there is already an adwords account associated with this email address.

 

Does anyone know what I need to do to be able to accept this invite?

Hi Mike,

When you clicked on the link in the invitation, did you select "I already have an account?" If not, AdWords made a new account for you with that email address. You'll have to remove it from the new account before you can use it in the intended account.

Best of Luck!

Hi Mike,

 

It sounds like you have used your current email address for an AdWords account in the past.

 

When you get the invite, you can choose to create a new account which might be easiest in this situation.

 

Think of your email address as a bank account, you only get into one (most of the time).
