Google Maps API

This document provides information about creating and using a Google Maps API key, as required since June 2016.

Google has issued a new update to the Google Maps APIs Standard Plan. In the new update, Google no longer supports keyless access (any request that doesn’t include an API Key) and has made all future product updates only available for requests made with an API Key. 

Create an API key

To create an API key, follow the instructions provided in this link: Generate API key. This is necessary due to Google's update to the Maps APIs Standard Plan, which no longer supports keyless access and requires an API key for all future product updates.

Insert API key

Once you have generated your API key, insert it by navigating to Flatsome → Advanced → Google APIs. This will enable the required features for your Google Maps integration.
