I have Google Adwords account. For the same email Id someone has shared read only access. How do I use shared account using the same credentials? If I try to access it says you already have an account and it doesn’t allow me to access the shared account.

Hi Shubhangi,

You are only allowed to be attached to one adwords account per email address. There is no way around this. If you want to be able to edit 2 accounts you will need 2 emails.

Good Luck

Hello,

 

To follow above, you need unique email address to gain access for AdWords. 

 

However, if you want to reuse an e-mail address for AdWords, Googler GDi has explained a trick in this post:

Hi Shubhangi,

One thing to consider is to use an MCC (My Client Center).  A MCC is like a master AdWords Account, or umbrella Account, where multiple Accounts can fall under one log-in.  While it's true that there is 1:1 relationship between email addresses and AdWords Accounts, using a MCC you can have a unique email address for your MCC and then have multiple Accounts underneath it.
