Re: MCC / Adwords professional / Adwords account

Hi Tom


I am having a simillar issue when I try to log into MCC, it logs me in to Adwords instead?


I am wanting to set up an MCC account to look after multiple accounts as I have being logging in via the customer's account as I only had a couple of clients. Now it's getting hard to manage 12 accounts in this manner.


I have a domain email which is what I would like to log in with via MCC so this would be how I can link in to my account so I can start gathering spend.


I am a little frustrated as this is nowhere to be found and it doesn't seem to work when I followed the advise you gave to the last guy who uploaded this issue.


Just one last thing... the was not used for any Google purposes previous to this.


Thannks in advance for your help.

Hi, and welcome to the forum...


First off, it's probably a good idea to remove your personal email from your post (you can do this by editing it).  This is a public board.


It sounds to me that the cm@ email has at some point created an AdWords Account.  As I suspect you know, an MCC login cannot have used AdWords previously.   Unfortunately, there's no way back from this - even a cancelled Account won't work.  Your only recourse now is to create another email address and make sure you don't accidentally sign up to AdWords.
