How to Find Your Customer ID

Circle Scott Dunroe On Google+


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:

@Marketing V, I'd suggest performing a few searches through your email history as it might have been mentioned during the initial signup phase.

Please help.  We set up a google adwords account a couple of years ago.  We need to change the credit card number.  But we cannot access the account :-s  When we sign in, google apps seems to have created an alternate xxx-xxx-xxxx number, and when I try to get to the billing section it wants me to start a whole new add.  The adds still show in google results, and we're billed every month, so the account exists, but is somehow separated from our apps account?  What on earth are we supposed to do?  How do we access our account?

Hi @freezik l,


The above article is actually for Google AdWords. My suggestion would be to submit your issue in the Google AdSense community here - https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/adsense
