How can I move my Google Analytics Property to another Gmail/Google Account?
First and foremost, before 3plains can transfer your Analytics, you must set up a Google Analytics account. Just because you can view your details, DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT. Most likely you are viewing your Analytics in the 3plains account. If you do NOT have a Google Analytics account setup, you will need to set one up by clicking "Create Account" and this will setup a Google Analytics "Account" that we can move the Google Analytics "Property" into it.
Ideally, each business or organization should have a single Google account. This one account could then have multiple products (Google Analytics, Google My Business, Google Gmail, Google AdWords, etc.). However, not every customer needs this or pays 3plains set this up.
3plains sets up Google Analytics as a complementary service to our customers and then provide them read access and email reports to them. If you would like the Google Property moved into another account, that's totally fine, just let us know. If the customer shall want access and/or it moved down the road, that's no problem, we provide them access to move it (read more below).
3plains is not the owner of your Google Analytics property, however, in a sense, the Google Property in our 3plains account. In our Terms of Service we clearly state we don't want to "own" any digital assets of yours. We don't hold any of our customers hostage and we are here to provide a honest and ethical service.
How Do I Get My Google Analytics Property In My Account?
