How to Add Multiple Users to Your Google AdSense Account?

Posted by on Mar 7, 2014 in Website ·

Google AdSense has recently added the facility to add multiple users to your account. This will allow multiple users to access the same AdSense account without sharing any user ID or password.

Many blogs have a team of multiple admins or authors. All the team members may need to see their earnings, manage the ads and see the reports. However, it was not possible before to do so. People needed to share their Google user ID and password.

But now, because we can add another user to our AdSense account, multiple users can manage it with ease.

AdSense User Management at a glance

• You can add any Google Account user to your AdSense account (Gmail address is not compulsory).

• The age of the user should be at least 18 years.

• Other Google products (like Google+, YouTube, AdWords, Gmail etc.) are not accessible to the added users.

• You cannot add or combine existing AdSense accounts.

• You cannot add accounts with rejected AdSense.

• For Google Apps, AdSense must be enabled from the dashboard.

• Payee name cannot be changed in any way.

• The added users are of two types : Standard and Administrator.

• The Administrator gets all the rights of your AdSense account including :
— Edit, manage or change any setting.
— See, add or remove other users.
— Change your payment address or bank details.

So, before adding anyone as an administrator, think twice. If you feel that there is no any kind of risk, then only add a user with administrative rights.

Removing a user

After the user is done with your AdSense, you can remove him/her. Just go to the user management section and see the list of users.

There must be a cross symbol in-front of each added user. Click on that and you are done. The user is now removed.
