How do I change a Google+ primary domain

Is there a way to change the primary domain / email within Google+?
For example I have a Google+ account already fully established, which I do not want to lose, that has a primary account of admin@oldbusiness.com and I want to have this account changed to admin@gmail.com, or possibly admin@newbusiness.com.
I cannot use the @oldbusiness.com account to receive mail because the oldbusiness.com MX records have been pointed to a Microsoft Exchange service now.

Thanks in advance

The best option would be to transfer the old Google+ account to new, by using Google Takeout.

Are you trying to change your primary email associated with a personal Google+ page or a business Google+ page?

I've had some major headaches dealing with this in the past, and I recall that I was unable to change the primary email for the business Google+ page without submitting a formal request to the Google+ team.

However, I have found this article to be highly useful - https://thecustomizewindows.com/2012/08/how-to-change-the-primary-email-associated-with-google-plus-account/

I wish I could have received this sooner, looks like the answer I wanted. But have already deleted the Google+ account and started a new one.

Thanks anyway.
