I am the freelance designer for this user and they have an existing google+ page, but just recently signed up for google my business and has a new google+ page. I was wondering if we could transfer the old pages information to the new one and delete the old page?

If you just now verified the new page, it is likely that the two pages will auto merge. If they have not done so within the week you should contact Google Support via this URL: https://support.google.com/business/contactflow?hl=en

Hey there

It looks like the "old page" is actually an unclaimed page or some call it an organic page. Google does not delete old pages, instead, you will want to "claim" the old page and correct the information and verify it. It does not look like your page is verified yet, so this will not happen until you input the pin code and verify the page.

Hi, Thank you for your response. So if I claim the other google+ page and then verify that one as well as the new one I can then either delete the old one or the information will merger? I guess I'm not really understanding. Or when I verify the new one it will take over the old one? Thank you, -- Katelyn Kingsbury Graphic Artist/Web Designer katelynlkingsbury@gmail.com 585-694-4057

As Tam pointed out your new page: New Google+ Page: https://plus.google.com/u/3/b/103328187409661915472/103328187409661915472/about?gmbpt=true&pageId=10... is not yet verified. The question that you need to answer before you do anything else is "What state is the verification of the new page?"

Is it in progress?

If you are awaiting verification it will ultimately merge with the old one. If not then you should verify the Old existing Google+ Page: https://plus.google.com/108875614197853990411/about and delete the new one.
