PPC Vouchers

Can the giver of the voucher view the account?

I have a question about vouchers that are given away for Overture (Yahoo Search) and Google Adwords.

When you use / accept a voucher from a marketing company, can the entity / person giving away the voucher view the new account?

I have someone who wants to set up a new account, and they don't care if someone makes a commission from their patronage, but they'd prefer not to have their account viewable by anyone else. Anybody know?

I seriously doubt that a voucher would allow access to a third-party to your account.

Unless the PPC engines really really want to get sued of course.

If you get the voucher from Google directly, then it's just a regular voucher.

There is a second type of vouchers for Google Advertising Professionals. You can only USE them if the Adtvertising Professional manages your account. Also those vouchers are not physical, but will get assigned to your account.

Yeah, I had seen that, and that's what made me wonder if someone might be entering into some type of relationship without it being as obvious as it should be with other vouchers. Maybe I should say "voucher codes" since none of them could actually be held in your hand.

I already told the person not to worry about a small one time discount, even though I'd hate to not take a free $50.

I'm still interested as a matter of knowledge, in case anyone has anything else to add.

Keep in mind that you can still manage your own account, even if it is assigned to an Advertising Professionals portfolio!

Right, but I always tell everyone to keep their plans to take over the world as secret as they can - until it becomes impossible for people not to notice. :-) I tell them not to tell their own mother, let alone an "advertising professional." lol.

I appreciate the replies from you all.
