Hi Folks,

 

I have take over the GM for the business I work in and need to change trading hours for the Xmas break. The current email address is j.ferns@nuprint.com.au and needs to be changed to leigh@nuprint.com.au

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks,

 

Leigh

Hi @Leigh Z, it's super simple to accomplish this as long as you have access to the current account. Here's the instructions to transfer ownership of a GMB listing - https://support.google.com/business/answer/3415281?hl=en

How do I change the email  associated with my business account?  The link you provided here transfers ownership, which I am owner.

Hi Chad. I believe the answer is still the same. In order to change emails you would need to transfer ownership to the new email.

... and how about if Owner email is old and new accessible, and my own Manager account has only enough rights to remove my own account?

 

I might need to go offline on this one :).

It appears that in all alternatives in that link, the email of the registered owner must receive the request and approve it... the address used as the Owner is an address they don't even recall, as was from years ago, and they do not have access to it. Have anything else?

In the link I provided​ it states "If you don’t hear back after 7 days, click the link in your confirmation email and follow the instructions to request additional support". 

 

Does that​ make​ sense​?
