Move a location page from my personal account to a business account?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a number of different business's and their locations within my personal account. What I would like to do is move these locations into business accounts so I can easily give clients access to their business locations and brand page.

 

I have set up a business account and tried adding a location by searching for it on the map but I get the message "this location is already in your account". Does anyone know of A way to move locations between accounts?

 

The business accounts, personal account and all locations are under the same Google account.

Hey Charlie,

You can have multiple emails attached to the same Google account and it sounds like that is what you did. In order to separate these, you need to set up a new Google account (log out of the one you are in currently) for each user. Then they would have their own logins and you could add those users as managers onto the appropriate page.

Hey Charlie,

What you should do is first add each business account as a manager onto that particular page. Then you can make the business account the owner and even remove yourself as a manager if needed.

Hi Joy,

Thanks for your help, I don't appear to have the ability to add a business account as the manager to a particular page, I can only add other google users.

In case I wasn't clear earlier it is all contained within the same Google email account, I just want to move a few pages to the business account I created in the same email.

Hello,

Is it possible to convert a page that was created as a Personal Google page to a Business Page?
If we create a new page, we loose the followers and all the history.

Any solution for this would be appreciated.
Thanks
