Cannot Accept Shared Account Inviation

Hi, I have an AdWords account set-up against my email address.


My colleague has invited me to share his account via the 'my client centre', and I have received a link by email to accept his invite.  


However, when I click the link I am taken to a screen asking which best describes you?, and How would you like to sign in to this AdWords Account?, but when I enter my AdWords email and password I cannot accept the invite due to already having an account.  Having recently passed my AdWords exams I do not wish to change my email address but need access to the shared account, so how do I go about accepting my colleagues invite and sharing accounts?

Hi Matthew,

You can not use the same email address for more than one account, either a single account or an MCC.

You'll need to remove your email address from your existing AdWords account before you can join another. I would suggest you get an MCC account so you can access multiple accounts with a single login. You can attach your existing account as well.

Best of Luck!
