I have a similar issue as many others have had here. I have an old AdWords account which I deleted, and I still can't manage to add the new account. Can anybody help please?

Hi Hana,

Try creating new adwords account with different login id.

Thanks!

Hi Hana G,

Deleting an AdWords account isn't technically possible, so I assume you're referring to a cancelled account. You can use the same account by re-activating it. Steps here. I'd recommend using the same account since there would be historic data.

 

However, if you'd like to create a new account, you'll have to either use a different log in email or remove the old email from the deleted account by adding another admin. I'd recommend reading this article for detailed steps.

 

Feel free to write back!

Hi Hana,

I am unable to understand what the exact issue is?
For MCC account, you can't delete it until you remove all the access of other accounts as your MCC has an administrative access to those accounts.
and if there is any single account which you have deleted(not exactly deleted, it is cancelled) you can create a new one with different email id else if you want to use the same email Id, you can make your account active again.
