I have recently set up a new Google+ page. We sell online products. I added my home address in the account and now I want to remove it but unable to. Help?

My original question was how to remove my personal address from my google+ page since we are an online business. If I can't get an answer on that, can I just delete my google+ page and recreate it or with the same name or will it force me to use a different name?

you made at least two errors @Brenda A C


1# as a onlien business you are not eligible for a local page at all and should never created and verified it.

2# evenin case you run a business facing customers at their location you should have creates a service area business with hidden address.


One more remark: deleting the business from your dashboard wont help to prevent the business from showing on GMaps.


My recommendation: 

contact business support explaining them the mistake you made as a online business having created a local business and ask them to remove the entire listing form their data repository of local listings;


The best way to contact business support:
contactflow & request a call back
Talk to a specialist
Global Phone Support Hours:
You can request in many (maybe not all though) countries a call back of experts of business support by phone. This should be possible on official working days and during their the day time only - try it from 9 or 10 AM until 5 or 6 PM
