Types of client access permissions

Learn how to set up and use access permissions

Clients with access to your Authorized Buyers account are assigned permissions, which control how they appear to publishers in Marketplace and what they can do. All clients with access permissions are visible to publishers and can receive direct offers and proposals. They can view all open offers, and offers addressed directly to them. They cannot view direct offers addressed only to you, or offers addressed to other clients.

Access permissions are set up per client, so all users associated with the client have the same permissions. All associated users can view available products and publisher profiles in Marketplace and have access to troubleshooting tools and reporting functionality, but only for deals with which they are currently associated.

Create, view or edit permissions

  1. Sign in to Authorized Buyers.

  2. Click admin Admin and then Clients.
  • To view or edit permissions for a current client, click a client's name in the table.
  • To set up a new client, click "New client" and enter their name into the "Primary name" field.

The following permissions are available:
