How can I start a new adword account using an already used email addre

I have been given a googlegrant for the charity AFrican Steps. African Steps already has an adword account which is in pounds stirling. Googlegrants requires the account to be in dollars. I can't change the current account to dollars, so have cancelled it. I now can't set up a new adword account for African Steps, as you don't seem to be able to use the same email address twice. What should I do please?

Hi

 

Here is a quick fix that may not be recommended by Google but should work (it did for me and others!):

1 create a new gmail-account

2. invite that account to your current AdWords-account (to be an Administrator)

3. accept the invitation

4. login to the AdWords-account with new gmail-adress

5. unlink the AdWords-account from old gmail-adress

6. Use old gmail to start a new AdWords-account

Because the Google Grants program does, in fact, keep a pretty close eye on what Grant recipients are doing, I would strongly suggest that you document what you're doing and why for your private records. If you have someone you've been working with at the Grants program, you might also drop them a note and explain what you're doing. 

 

Just to make sure you don't run into problems in the future.
