How to Give Someone Access To Your Amazon Advertising Account (Safely)

This article covers a step by step on how to do so, complete with a follow along video at the end. The steps are:


STEP 1: Log into KDP

STEP 2: Click on Bookshelf

STEP 3: Click on Promote & Advertise for your book on the bottom right

STEP 5: Hover over the 3 lines on the top left next to amazon advertising

STEP 6: Click on account access

STEP 7: Click on invite user and enter in name and email - smash the invite user button on the top right


Not everyone has time to be a full time author and book marketer. Luckily Amazon has made it easy for you to add someone to your Amazon Advertising Dashboard which allows them to create, edit, and delete campaign without giving them access to passwords or any financial information.


If you're still not sure what Amazon Advertising is or why you'd use it, you'll probably want to start here.


If you are someone who has the time, I'd recommend avoiding these rookie mistakes.

To complete setup of your account, you'll also need to make sure Amazon has a card on file to charge the cost of the ads to. To set that up, hover over the left dark blue bar again and select billing and payments this time. Click on payment settings and add your payment information.

That's it! Feel free to check out the video below for a follow along.



One final note is that even if you have someone managing your account, you'll still want to make sure your ads are profitable. Without KDP access, the editor on your account won't be able to track your exact numbers. That's why we wrote this blog on figuring out if you're profitable.


If you want to test the waters before bringing someone on to manage your ads, we'd recommend starting with two super easy campaign types to set up, Automatic Targeting and Product Targeting.
