Create a business account on Google to run location ad campaigns or share location management data of your locations with multiple users. You can share with users who are associated with your company, co-workers, managers, etc.

A Google Business Account is like a shared folder that contains all your locations. Use a business account as a safer alternative to sharing account information with users. When you create an account, you can transfer locations from other accounts to your Google business account. Additionally, it is very convenient to manage and see all locations all in one place. You can either be an owner or a manager of a business account and each user has the capability to create, edit, and delete locations.

A business account can have multiple owners, but only have one primary owner. An owner has five capabilities within an account.
  • Add and remove account owners and managers. 
  • Delete the business account.
  • Transfer business account ownership.
  • Add, edit, and delete locations in the account.
  • Transfer ownership of locations to a different business account.

A manager can only be added to a Google business account by an account owner. An account manager has two capabilities within an account.
  • Add, edit and delete locations in the account. 
  • Transfer ownership of locations to a different business account.
