    Hello.
    I’ve created an api with no restrictions, waited long enough (around 15mins) but WP/Enfold can not connect.
    Disabled all plugins – still not working.
    Tried creating another API, with restrictions to my domain only, still not working.
    I’m adding details on private area. If possible PLEASE connect to my screen via AnyDesk so i can also show you the API page of google.
    Thanks

    I somehow managed it. As far as i understand, to get API’s working, a billing method must be set up. I’ve added an empty bank card details, now it works.

    But somehow i am scared of being charged too much. What if 200$ monthly Maps API credit won’t be enough for my webpage? Its very unlikely but not impossible of course.
    Aynone knows how to prevent getting charged?
    Thanks

    Hi,

    Thanks for the updates, I’m glad that it’s working now. I don’t think you have to be too worried about getting charged by Google since they allow several thousands of calls each month for free.

    Best regards,

    Hello @rikard ; I aggree that i dont worry that much, but for example in case of an DDoS attack, with thousands of GMaps requests, i may get billed a lot.. :)
    So, security first, as always, not only for web site security :D

    Hi,

    Yes, I guess that is a possibility. But I’ve never heard of it happening and users getting billed for it.

    Best regards,
    Rikard

    Correct. Just in case.
    So I am still open for any suggestions.

    Hi,

    Yes, but we don’t make the rules for what is required from Google unfortunately. If you don’t want to risk getting a bill from them then you can look at alternatives to Google Maps.

    Best regards,
    Rikard
