There are two different types of ad accounts on Facebook – in this post, we’re talking about adding people to your business account. To access this account, you would use this url:
I prefer using a business account, but the reasoning is long and convoluted and filled with traumatic events. I’ll talk about them some other time.
How Do I Add A User To My Meta Business Ad Account
When you first sign into your business account, you’ll see on the left hand side the hamburger stack. Click on that.
This menu will pop out.
Click on Ad Account Settings.
Of the two options that pop up, you’ll click on Open Business Settings.
If you’d like to skip to this part, just go here: https://business.facebook.com/settings
Once you’re in the ad account settings, all you should need to do is click ADD PEOPLE.
This will bring up a new popup. This is what it looks like initially. No permissions are granted and no one is selected.
You’ll need to select a person that has been added, and then give them permissions. For the purpose of ad management, you’ll want to give them the exact access shown below – NOT FULL ACCESS.
This is a security protection for both parties. When you limit their access, then the payment settings, admin users/owners (you) can’t be changed. They can still access the pertinent information as well as perform the necessary duties.
Once all of that is selected, you’ll click Assign.
The person you’re adding will get an email notification and go through steps to get added to the business account. This is different from the personal account.
