Hi Yugal,

If you read the page you linked here, it suggests that perhaps you don't meet the age requirements to use AdWords.

"In order to use AdWords and AdWords Express, you need to be at least 18 years old. The age we use is the one you entered when creating the Google Account that's associated with your AdWords account. When creating a Google Account, you should provide your own age -- not the age of your business."

Hi Yugal,

What Tommy meant by Age restrictions on AdWords was that the Gmail Id that you or your client has created to gain access to the AdWords platform has been registered with a brith date that is below the age requirement for AdWords. If you want to rectify this issue, you need to either change the birth date in your Gmail account or create another Gmail account and then try and access the AdWords platform.

@Tommy - Hope I am right in this?

Hope this Helps!

Cheers!

Hi Yugal

@ShashankSingh has pointed exactly what is needed to be done,

To make the things a bit easier for you..
Step 1: Login to your gmail account and click the link https://www.google.com/settings/personalinfo
Step 2: Click on Edit Profile (available at top right)
Step 3: Now, scroll down to Basic Information section --> Click edit
Step 4: Change the Birthday.

Hope this has simplified the things to a resolution point.
