Frequently there is a need to invite new users to help manage an Amazon Advertising account. A common use case would be if a seller hired an agency to help them manage their accounts, or a new employee on a marketing team has been hired.
Instead of giving the person who needs access your own login information (which you should NEVER do) you can instead add them as a user to the advertising account. Not only that, but you have 3 levels of access to choose from.
|Admin||All the permissions of an Editor plus the ability to add/remove other users and change payment setting|
|Editor||Full access to view, create, update and delete advertisements. Can use 3rd Party Software to access data via API.|
|Viewer||Can only view advertising data. Cannot change advertisements in any way|
⚠️ Note that if you use a 3rd party software tool to access your advertising data, you will need a minimum permission level of Editor
Navigate to the administration menu at the bottom of the sidebar and click on Access and Settings
This will bring up the users list for the advertising profile. Then click on Invite User
Next you can enter the name, email and access level for the user you are adding.
The user who has been invited to the advertising profile will receive an email where they must accept the invitation
As a general security practice it is best to give users the least amount of privileges required to do their job. You can always change their permissions later. You can also remove a user from your advertising profile at any time.
