What is a Customer ID?
A Customer ID is a ten digit, three part code which is assigned to each and every AdWords account including MCC's (My Client Centre). This code is required when submitting feedback forms or help requests to Google AdWords customer support, when linking your account to other Google products such as Analytics and also needed to link with a MCC.
Why use a Customer ID?
The idea behind the Customer ID is to avoid having to share personal login information with other individuals. If you were to partake in a free AdWords management trial with an agency for example then you would be reluctant to share your password as you may use it for other accounts also. Being able to share your Customer ID eliminates this inconvenience and protects your sensitive data.
Where can I find my Customer ID?
Simply login to your AdWords account and you will always be able to locate your Customer ID in the top right corner of the account below the option to sign out. You will see the ten digit code in the format xxx-xxx-xxxx as seen in the picture below:
I have been managing AdWords accounts for over 8 years now at an international marketing agency level and also as a freelancer. I am very passionate about Google's PPC platform and pretty much anything else that is Google related. My theory in life is to learn something new every day and this community is definitely a good place to do so; I would recommend anyone reading this to stick around as it's an excellent source of information with great people contributing to it.
