Payments

Manage payments users in your AdSense account

If you're registered as a business, you can add other people to a payments profile. For each person you add, you decide whether or not they can invite other users, buy or sign up for paid Google services, view your payment history, or make changes to the profile.

Note: This feature is not available for individual accounts.
