I deleted my account to join and accept an invation to another account with my email. when i entered in the information it says that i already have an account so i cant accept the invitation even though the account is "diactivated" Is there a way i can clear my email address from adwords to start over?

Your email address remains associated with the account even after deleting. You should able to invite another user (email address) to the account. It can be tricky when you own both email accounts.

 

After sending the invitation, be sure you are logged out of all Google services before accepting the invitation by clicking on the link in the email message. Then click "I already have an account", or the system will make a new account and you'll have to start all over.

 

Then log out and back in with the old address. Confirm the invite acceptance and promote the new user to admin. Log out and back in with the new email address. You will then be able to remove your existing email address from that account. After that you will be able to use that email address as login to another account.

 

Best of Luck!

Hi,

You should use a new email address to accept the invitation or else you should consider getting a mcc account where you can use all your clients account.
