Access to manager accounts

Users with administrative access to a manager account can receive notification emails, and can manage any part of that account and its campaigns. They can also change another person's access level, and in some cases, can terminate someone's access level.

Note: Local Services Ads use Google Ads to set up manager accounts. For existing and new manager account users, you must edit your manager accounts within Google Ads, as they can’t be set up or changed directly through Local Services Ads. Learn more about Google Ads manager accounts

Access to billing and payments

Access to your account’s billing is controlled separately within the Payments profile. If a user does not have sufficient access to the Payments profile, they will only see limited information.

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