The google API Key is a digital token (basically a code of numbers and letters!). When this token is added to a digital map it not only authenticates your businesses location, but allows you to gain access to important marketing information such as the ability to monitor your map queries (if applicable).
If you have a large business and your map is exceeding more than 25,000 map users per day, you would then be charged according to Google’s Pricing Platform.
Please Note: If you do not wish to create a Google account or generate an API Key for any reason, we will simply opt against using a map in your website design, or you can delete the mapping plugin after your website has been launched.
