Merging Brand and Local page

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Good evening all

 

I'm trying to merge my existing brand page with a newly created and verified local page.

 

I'm following the instructions on https://support.google.com/business/answer/6010825?hl=en however, once I go to settings > profile, "This page is connected to Google Maps" does not exist. I therefore don't have the option to Connect a different page.

 

This is really frustrating. I can't seem to find any help on this.

 

I'd really appreciate anyone's assistance.

 

Thanks, Tom.

Thank you for your response Helmut.

It appears there was just some lag with verifying my business and waiting for the link to appear. It does now exist.

are you sure you are not only managing both pages in question but also
managing both as the page owner in your dashboard?

I am having the same issue as Tom. How do you know if you are managing both a brand and business page as the owner in your dashboard?
