Automatic Steps

To create an account with the Google Ads API, you must authenticate as a user of an existing manager account. New accounts are created under that manager account.

If you don't already have a manager account, follow the steps in Create a manager account before using the Google Ads API to create sub-accounts.

You can use the CreateCustomerClient method to create sub-accounts with the Google Ads API.
