Create additional accounts

Find out how to set up additional accounts after you sign up for Bing Ads and why you might want to.

When you sign up for Bing Ads, you will create your first account. However, you might want to create additional accounts to more efficiently manage and monitor your campaigns. Consider setting up multiple accounts, if you want to use different:

  • Forms of payments. Each account can only have one primary payment method at a time, but you can change your payment method at any time.
  • Billing options. Each account can only have one payment setting (prepay or postpay), but you can change your payment setting at any time.
  • Currencies to pay your advertising charges. Each account can only have one currency, and you can't change the currency after you set up the account.
  • Primary Contacts. Each account can only have one Primary Contact, which can be changed at any time.

A few things to know about accounts

  • Your new account is assigned an account ID and number, which is what you will need to reference if you call customer support. This information appears on the Accounts & Billing page. For more info, see How should I organize my accounts and campaigns?
  • You can use a different credit card for each Bing Ads account, or you can use the same card for more than one account. A single credit card, debit card, or PayPal account can be associated with up to five accounts. For more info, see How do I add my credit card or other payment method?
  • If you have a postpay threshold account, you can add a backup payment method so that your ads continue to run if there is a problem with your primary payment method. If you have a prepay account, you can set up recurring payments to avoid running out of funds and having your account paused.
  • If you no longer need an account, you can delete it at any time, as long as it has no active campaigns. To learn more, see How do I delete my account?
