Since June 22, 2016 – Google Maps APIs Standard Plan was updated and now it includes following new rules:
- We no longer support keyless access (any request that doesn’t include an API key). Future product updates are only available for requests made with an API key.
We have already added Google API key for our Google Maps Easy plugin. However since the large number of plugin users, we can simply exceed limits of map loads per day, therefore you may encounter with problem which described above.
In order to protect you from these new limitations, we have added ability to use your own Google API key.
Therefore to avoid this problem, please follow next steps:
- At first you need to create Gmail Account and login to it.
- Then follow this link and click on “GET STARTED” button.
- After that, you will be redirect on the Google Cloud. Select the “Maps” option.
- Set up the project name.
- If you do not have a billing accounts, Google will ask you to create it. So, fill all the fields. In order you have it, jump to the next step. Note, according to a Google policy , you will automatically charged only when you reach your billing threshold or 30 days after your last automatic payment, whichever comes first. Firstly, Google get a 12-month free trial period and $300 credits.
- Create a new project: enter the name and location.
- The last step – enable your APIs by clicking the “NEXT” button.
- Done! Your generated API key will appear in the window.
