Manage additional Partner Centre users

If multiple people need access to your Partner Centre account, you can add additional users. All users will be able to sign in to the Partner Centre using their own credentials, so you don't need to share your password or any other information associated with your Google account.

Requirements

  1. Only users with administrative access can add, edit or remove users.

  2. Any additional users that you wish to add must have an existing Google account.

    Ask them to create a Google account for free if they don't already have one. If they prefer, they can use their current email address to create the account, rather than setting up a new Gmail address.

     

Add a user

  1. Sign in to the Partner Centre.
  2. Go to the Account Settings.
  3. Click the Users tab.
  4. Click the Add User button.
  5. Enter the email address associated with the Google account of the user that you'd like to add.
  6. Click OK. The email address that you entered should now appear in the list of users.

Users can use their Google account email address and password to sign in to the Partner Centre. They'll be able to view and edit any settings on the pages that they have access to, according to their access type.

There's no limit to the number of users that can be added to an account.

Access types

Each user has an access type that determines which pages in the Partner Centre account are visible. Access types can be used to restrict specific users from viewing or editing certain sets of settings. Access types can be edited by anyone with administrative access, and a user can have more than one access type. By default, new users have access to the Book Catalogue, so make sure that you specify a different access type if necessary. The following access types are available:

  • Book Catalogue: Add and edit books.
  • Analytics & Reports: Download preview and sales reports.
  • Payment Centre: Manage sales territories and payment profiles (including bank account information).
  • Administrative Access: This access type includes all the above access types, as well as the ability to view and edit account settings (such as managing users).
Note: In order to view and download earnings reports, a user must have both Analytics & Reports and Payment Centre access (or Administrative Access, which includes both).

Remove a user

If a user no longer needs access to the Partner Centre, you can remove them.

  1. Sign in to the Partner Centre.
  2. Go to the Account Settings.
  3. Click the Users tab.
  4. Click the Remove link next to the email address of the user that you wish to remove.
