About access levels in your Google Ads Account

Each time you grant access to your Google Ads Account, you'll be able to select which features the user can impact by assigning an access level.

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

Access for manager accounts

If you've accepted an invitation to link to a manager account, people who have admin access to the manager account can receive notification emails and manage your campaigns. If the manager account has ownership, users with admin access to the manager account can also edit user access, managers, and product links within your account. Learn more about manager account access levels.

Access to billing and payments

Within Google Ads, users with Admin or Billing access levels can update an organization's payments profile info, such as the following:

  • Name and address
  • Tax ID
  • Language preference
  • Add and edit forms of payment

Users with Admin or Billing access can make these changes even if they aren't Payments profile users. Google Ads admins can complete all steps of the advertiser verification process. These actions were previously restricted to Payments profile users only.

When Google Ads users make changes to the payments profile, payments admins receive an email notification. Note that Google Ads users can't add or remove users from the payments profile or change existing user permissions. Learn more about Payments user permissions.

If you want to turn this feature off, contact Google Ads support.
