How to Merge Two Facebook Pages?

Do you have more than one Facebook Page for your blog, website, or business? If your answer is yes, then it can confuse your online audience where to stick. You can merge two Facebook pages to clear their confusion. The same method will work if you want to merge Facebook business pages.

In this article, I will cover all the steps you should take care of while merging Facebook Pages.

Why Should I Merge Facebook Pages?

There may be certain reasons to merge Facebook pages if you have two or more pages.

1. Recover admin rights to old pages if lost.
2. You have a Facebook profile instead of Facebook Page for your business
3. Somebody is trying to steal the business identity
4. Your FB page is not listed as ‘Local’, and People are trying to create a ‘new’ place Page or Place Pages.
5. You set a wrong page name or changed the business name by managing two pages for the same business

Points to be noted:

1. To merge two Facebook Pages, you should be admin of both pages.
2. The page name should be similar and represent the same thing.
3. Local pages should have the same address.
4. If no option to merge Facebook Pages is available, then eligibility is questionable. Then you can request Facebook for a review.

What to Consider Before You Merge Facebook Pages?

1. Change the name of Pages and keep the same. It will be helpful to take merge approval from Facebook.
2. “About” information, website, phone number, address, and description should be the same on both of the pages.
3. Find the number of previously created ‘Places’ Pages for your business.
4. Note down how many check-ins and likes of Each Page.
5. Only keep the most liked and followed Facebook Page.
6. Create and pin a post to create awareness about merging Facebook Pages.
7. Download backup of the Facebook Page that you are going to merge.

  1. bonjour
    great share.
    I consider the best iptv boxes are those from fishbone cloud
    I would like to see more posts like this
    Thanks

  2. When I try and do this, it does not give the option of which page I want to keep??? It goes from Step 2 to Step 5. How can I select which page to keep??

  3. Hello everybody !

    I would like to choose the remaining page but it seems you can not do it anymore…
    It there a way around ?

    Thank you,
    Seb

  4. Hi!

    I have the same question as all above, I do not get the option to choose which page I keep. How can we choose which page to keep?

    Thanks!

  5. An error has occurred while merging pages. This may be caused by your attempt to merge too many pages.

    I keep getting this error code… Can you help?

  6. I have tried this however facebook automatically send a reply saying:

    ‘We’re unable to merge E Beauté into EH Beauté because it looks like these Pages represent different things. To merge two Pages, they must represent the same thing. To learn more about Page merge policies, please visit the Help Center: https://www.facebook.com/help/249601088403018/?ref=cr Thanks,’

    Please help i changed names so they are similar, profile pic but still no joy.

  7. I have tried this twice and from what I can tell it’s not processing. I can get through all of the steps (pages meet requirements) but it’s been at least a week and the pages are still not merged. Does facebook send any kind of notification to the page support inbox showing any kind of status? I just feel like it is lost out there in cyber land. What else can be done?

  8. Hello.

    Thanks for this informative post. I am wondering whether you could shed some insight onto the issue I am having:

    I am attempting to merge two Facebook pages with a substantial amount of followers each. I follow the above steps and it says “merge successfully requested” but nothing has happened. I first requested the merge on Monday (today is Friday, so 5 days ago). I attempted the merge again yesterday (Thursday) and again today. Each time it tells me the merge has been successfully requested but nothing has happened. Surely it should not take this long.

    Could you help me, at all?

    Thanks very much.

    • I’m having the exact same issue, and finding help through FB community seems non-existent. If you find answers, please respond here. I’m still searching as well.

    • I am having the exact same issue, my pages say successfully merged but they never merge. I have reached out numerous times to support and no response. I have been trying for almost a year. Anyone know what to do in this situation?

    • i have tried multiple times to merge and keep getting message that pages are to far apart and the check the address the address on both is identical and the name of the business is the same. Any suggestions

  9. Hello! Im trying to merge 2 pages, I’m admin for both, everything on the pages are identicall but it doesnt work. I get the error-message “You are trying to merge to many pages” However these are the only 2 I’m trying to merge. I have tried to contact facebook-support but it doesnt work. Even tried VPN to US to cpntact Facebook support but that doesnt work either. Anyone have the same problem or the sulution?

  10. Hey I have tried this but get this response:
    These Pages can’t be merged because either (page1) or (page 2) is the primary Page of a Business Manager.

    But I have checked and page 2 is the primary page of business manager.

    Do you know how to fix?

  11. You need to wait until Facebook fixes the issue. It is common practice nowadays so keep patients.

  12. Hi
    I have the same question as two individuals above, I do not get the option to choose which page I keep. How can we choose which page to keep?

    Thanks!

  13. I got an error saying the pages can’t be merged because there’s a pending merge request. Where can I see this merge request? How can I fix this?

  14. I hardly think Facebook Merge Works Anymore… it used to when my pages were very viral but stopped when facebook unpublished millions of pages and reduced engagements by almost 80%.

    In the last couple of months 6-7months now I have been trying it sometimes shows ‘Successfully Merged’ but no changes even about 20 minutes ago.

    Facebook Team never solves anything.

    I think they have disabled it cos merges used to work instantly until mid-2018.

    • it is true?? because i already do a several time 2 month ago until now.. but its still same.. no change..

  15. can you help me?? i already succesful request merge.. but the page still same no merge at all.. why?

  16. I do it but once the pages “merge succesfully” does not happen nothing, remains each one.

  17. hi, how much time does it take to have an accepted merging request?
    I requested the merge since 3 days ago and still waiting

  18. Above the suggestion is to change the page names to be the same. However, in my experience, when you try to change the page name, FB denies the change request saying you already have a page with the same name. :/

  19. I have been trying to merge 2 pages for a year now Pages Can’t Be Merged
    An error has occurred while merging pages. This may be caused by your attempt to merge too many pages.

  20. What if I want to keep one page’s name but the other page’s URL? Will it force me to give up all of one group or the other with no option to mix?

  21. I just merged two church pages into the more popular page. I understood I would lose all the content from the old page, but posts on the page I merged to has disappeared as well. What can I do?

  22. Hello. I own two facebook pages, and I need to merge them. But the answer I get is: “Pages can not be merged”. It was a whole process but finally, after following all the steps, this is what I get, no explanation, no nothing. Where’s the problem?

  23. Hi…I’ve tried to merge two pages with one letter difference in the name, however I get this message: ‘These Pages can’t be merged because there is already a pending request to merge ****. You must wait for this request to be resolved before trying again.’ However I can’t see any evidence of a pending merge or any messages about it etc. I have tried to merge on Facebook and Business Manager (ensuring that Instagram is added)…do you know how I can make the merge happen? I tried leaving it for a week but still the same message.

  24. I need marge 2 Pages, But I have this message.
    These Pages can’t be merged because they’re part of different Business Manager accounts.

  25. Hello Vinay. Thanks for the useful info. What will be the name of my page if I merge to pages for example who have similar names?

    • You merge a duplicate page to a primary Facebook page. So, you know the name of your page.

  26. Has any found out why pages are not merging? Even after it says page merge successfully.
    I tried again, says merge successfully
    Still no merge.
    I see this issue has plagued many for years.

  27. Hi, I have tried to merge two pages which are on my account. I keep getting the message, “These Pages can’t be merged because they’re part of different Business Manager accounts.” Although I’m the only business manager of both pages. Can you think what I may be doing wrong? Many thanks,

  28. Hey Vinay, any idea why, when I try to merge two pages that FB will not allow me to choose the page I wish to keep, but decides on the page itself.

  29. Hi

    I have changed the name of my facebook page (100k likes) to a similar facebook page online (3k likes) last month successfully, and post same contents separately on both pages, if I attempt to merge it now after a month later, will facebook banned both of my account due to the name change + Merge? do they even allow name change + merge, or will facebook treat this as deceiving. we wish to maintain the likes, while making sure it is not having 2 pages which might caused confusion, but we have read somewhere that fb will sometimes unpublish both pages permanently, without any explanation or chances of appeal…

    Is facebook merge working now? anyone has successfully merge their facebook pages recently can share please?

  30. Hello,

    I have been trying to merge two pages. However, I keep getting the same error code ‘An error has occurred while merging pages. This may be caused by your attempt to merge too many pages.’

    I fulfilled all the requirements necessary for the merge. Can you please help me out?
