Using Google Maps professionally
What is the Google Maps Platform?
Google combines its services and APIs for interactive map applications in the Google Maps Platform. Anyone who wants to use map applications with Google Maps must create a billing account – either online directly with Google or through us as a Google Cloud Partner.
What does it cost to use Google Maps?
Google provides each user with US$200 of credit for the use of the APIs within the Google Maps Platform. Any use of the Google Maps Services in excess of this amount will be billed via a user account on the basis of usage.Free download: Overview of the services and pricing of the Google Maps Platform
How do I integrate the Google Maps Platform into my app or website?
The first step is to create a user account in the Google Cloud Platform Console and store your credit card details there. You will then receive an API key, which you can use to link your use of the platform in a domain or app to your account. Alternatively, we can provide you with a user account – with convenient invoices and without the need for a credit card.
