    Had someone tell me the other day that he gave a prospective buyer his GA login details.

    Saw a post in Sitepoint today that asks, "Is there any other way to provide access to Analytics than to give the username/password to the account?"

    Well, nothing I guess. The site is no longer open to new members. At some point I need to get a few more products online and I'm done.
