Need to merge business local page and brand page

Hi there, I need to connect my Business Local Listing (made today) to my brand's Google Plus page (made 2+ years ago). I have been following these steps and have no option to "Link a different page to this location": https://www.hallaminternet.com/merge-google-brand-page-google-local-page/

 

Original Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/112080279905965930060/+Whitepotstudios 

 

New brand local listing: https://plus.google.com/116552240760390939956  or https://plus.google.com/116552240760390939956/about 

 

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.

 

This option has been removed as part of the separation of GMB and Google Plus.

Hey,

 

So what happens now ? whats the best way forward ?

 

I have an online shop. I have created a Business page stating I only deliver to customer. I also have a brand page for same business with a youtube account. I posted to brand page only and have more follower than business page. Now many things on google changed and I am very confused what shall I do and cant find any good updated guide either. 

 

Please help me understand and point me to the right direction.

 

Regards

Plaban

I was thinking .... 

should I move youtube to Business page and delete brand page?

or Keep as it is ?

I really do not like the idea of duplicate profile.

important question is business page suitable for online only businesses?

 

Please help me out.

 

Thanks
