HI, Google Team.

We are developing an API to create a new Merchant account(insert).
While searching for related inquiries, I found the following inquiry.

Could the same situation still exist?
If a 401 occurs, can I resolve it with a delayed request?

Thank you.

This is Ciara from the Content API support team. Thank you for reaching out.


According to our documentation, after the creation of a new account it may take a few minutes before it's fully operational. Kindly wait for a few minutes before making requests for the newly created account. You can use the accounts.list, that is used to lists the sub-accounts in your Merchant Center account to check if the new account appears on the list. If you still encountered the User cannot access account <account_number> error, make sure to check that you're targeting the right account or register yourself as a user of the account in Merchant Center (Settings > Users).


Let me know if you have any questions.
