Just need to know if the multi-client merchant centre account is symptomatic of the MCC account for multiple clients or is there a difference?

 

Thanks in advance

yes, mca and mcc both have similar representative functions --
allowing a single person to handle the details of multiple clients.

also, both accounts have a concept of multi-user-access --
with similar, somewhat parallel, functionality related to
allowing multiple people to access a single account.

yes, there is a difference.

the multi-client-acount within the merchant-center
has nothing to do with the my-client-center within
the adwords-account.

each is disjoint from the other.

the merchant-center is for handling inventory (feed) data --
linking the (feed) data can be done to any adwords-account
and the data is seen within adwords based on linking.

an mca (multi-client-account) within the merchant-center, might

be used as one way to handle a client's inventory (feed) data --

but there are many other methods.

adwords is for handling advertising -- billing, budgets, bids --
and for organizing (linked) feed data for product-listing-ads

(shopping-campaigns).

an mcc-account (my-client-center) within adwords

might be used to handle a client's advertising --
but there are other methods.

Sorry Celebird, I should have been more diligent in putting my question across. I am familiar with Merchant and Adwords accounts, my question was more symbolic more than anything. Actually I wanted to know if the multi client merchant acc for data feed is just like MCC account is to ad campaigns/billing etc. Sorry again
