Add or remove people from a business payments profile

If you manage a business payments profile, you can add other people to it. For each person you add, you decide whether or not they can invite other users, buy or sign up for paid Google services, view your payment history, or make changes to the profile.

Note: People you add can see your payment information.

If you no longer want someone on a payments profile, you can remove them from it.

Add someone to a profile

  1. Sign in to Payments users.
  2. Choose Add a new user.
  3. Enter the contact’s information. Decide which permissions you want your contact to have.
  4. Tap or click Invite. Your contact will show as "Pending" until they accept your invitation.
    • The invitation expires after two weeks. To resend an invitation, choose the person you want to re-invite and tap or click Resend invitation.

Choose what people on your profile can do

When you add someone to a payments profile, you can set their permissions to give them various kinds of access to payment information for all Google products.

Important notes: 

  • Even if no permissions are selected, the user can receive email notifications related to payments for all linked accounts (without needing a Google Account themselves).
  • To receive any of the permissions listed, the user must have a Google Account. See Create a Google Account.
  • A user with any of the permissions listed can sign in to the payments center and view information for all Google products.

Available permissions:
