Granting access and how to protect billing information

Hi,

 

I need someone to help me managing my adwords account and I found one person on fiverr. She is going to send me an invitation to link my account to her manager account.

 

Please advise if there is the access level where she could manage my account without seeing my billing information or if there anyway to protect it. Thank you.

George S,

I strongly advise you to really do some due diligence about the person you are granting access to your Account.

Under normal circumstances the request will be an MCC request which grants the other user full access to manage your account.

However with all accounts the Billing profile will not display the Full 16 digits of the credit card, rather the last four, the expiration date and your full billing address.

The person will have access to create campaigns in which you will be billed for. So it the person is not ethical , they could create other campaigns toward other site and you would be billed for that activity. They also could get your account suspended if they don't know enough about adwords and consistently "break the rules" or violate policy.

So please do your own due diligence .. Finding a person on Fiverr make us Cringe a bit. So be very cautious

I have an SEO company that needs access to the analytical. I created a User account with READ ONLY access. Would that be safe?
