About Multiple Customer Management

Only available in Google Ad Manager 360.
Explore how parent publishers can help child publishers with Multiple Customer Management. #MCM

With Multiple Customer Management (MCM), Ad Manager publishers can earn revenue with the help of third-party providers who can consult, represent, and manage networks or inventory on their behalf.

Publishers can delegate management of their Ad Manager network to a third-party publisher upon request. This establishes a parent-child relationship, where the network that requests access is the "parent publisher," and the network that grants access is the "child publisher."

A parent-child relationship can have one of the following delegation types:

  • Manage Inventory: The child publisher delegates inventory to the parent publisher. The inventory is managed in the parent's account.
  • Manage Account: The child publisher grants account access to the parent publisher. The inventory is managed in the child's account.  

Note: A child publisher can have a Manage Account parent and multiple Manage Inventory parents at the same time. However, the child publisher can't be managed by the same parent under both delegation types.
