About access levels in your AdWords account

If you need to share your AdWords account with other people in your business, you might want to invite them to share access through their own Google account. Each time that you grant access to your AdWords account, you'll be able to select which features the user can affect by assigning an access level.

This article explains the levels of access you can assign and the corresponding features available for each access level.

Also find out how to grant or remove access to your AdWords account.

Access for manager accounts

They can also change another person's access level, and in some cases they can terminate someone's access level. Find out more about manager account access levels.

Access to billing and payments

You can manage which users can perform tasks like making payments, changing payment methods or receiving invoices by adding or removing them from your Google payments profile in the Google payments centre.
