About access levels in your Local Services account

You can share your Local Services Ads account with other people in your business by providing them access through their Google account. Each time you grant access to your Local Services Ads account, you can select which features the user can impact by assigning an access level.

For instructions on how to grant or remove access, see Manage access to your Local Services Ads account.

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: You must edit your manager accounts within Google Ads, as they can’t be set up or changed directly through Local Services Ads.

Access to billing and payments

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 center.
