Email marketing for clients

Hi so I have a question that may sound so silly because I'm a newbie. I design websites and offer other services for clients I do websites for (like email marketing). What do the rest of you do when it comes to opening an email marketing account for a client? do you have them create it and give you login credentials, do you get the payment info from the client and open it in their name? Here's a real example of a current dilemma. I have a client that already has a mail chimp account. I sign in with their credentials and mailchimp wants to "verify" I am the owner. I'm not. If they send an SMS verification code it's going to go to the client, not me. How do I get around things like this? what do you do? I'm not yet set up to take payments through my website so I'm trying to keep this simple. When they pay me for my services I want it to be seamless, not 2 steps, one for my services one so I can open an email account in their name... Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read and respond.

    In the case of Mailchimp, you can have your client set up a multi-user mailchimp account and then invite you as a developer to work on his account.

    A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

    It seems to me that Mailchimp restricts and places bans on accounts without cause once their platform algorithm detects a particular word used in any of your email campaign series. I have set accounts up for 2 different clients with this same issue, so I don't consider them viable enough to use for clients management, because they can just wake up one day and place a ban/restriction on your account. You can follow up with your list. It's really annoying.

    Just my 2 cent.

      Post some example words that trigger a mailchimp ban.

      Thank you all. I am urging my clients to go with Aweber as I'm an affiliate there anyway. I also have and prefer Aweber. Is there a multiuser option with them or other email marketing providers?
