Hi Robin, Please find my *inline* response below:
1. I just want to clarify one point that is not exactly answered; a little extension on question 4. An AdWords API created client account will not be able to serve ads unless: 1. The AdWordsSession used to create the client account is using a client customer id of a manager account 2. The manager account used in the AdWordsSession has consolidated billing set up If any of these conditions are not met, the created client account will just be a AdWords account that cannot serve any ads until someone goes to the AdWords dashboard console to access the new created account to set up billing. *Yes*. 2.Another question I would like to ask is what happens if the client customer id of the AdWordsSession is of a client account? Will the account still be created? *No, you need to set client customer id of manager account. Otherwise you will get M**anagedCustomerServiceError.NOT_AUTHORIZED error.* 3.If so, I would like to confirm that the answer to my question 4,1 - " If so and assuming the answer I got from the help center is entirely correct, then can I conclude that it is not possible to create an AdWords client account via API that can actually run campaigns? " is yes as the only suggested add billing information method in the guide is to use the AdWords UI; i.e. it is not possible to create an AdWords client account that can serve ads via API unless the manager account used to create this new client account (via API) has consolidation billing setup. *Yes. You can create client account by setting CID of manger account in AdWordsSession. You can set up billing via AdWords dashboard console, then your ads will serve the live data. Other option would be, after creating the client account via API, **you can do a BudgetOrderService.mutate() via API and add budget orders to new client accounts (which did not have any billing setup since its creation) via API, If the MCC is on consolidated billing.* Let me know if you have further questions.
