How-to: Create Google Maps API key
Google Maps usage changes
Google changed the requirements for the Google Maps usage on your website. You need to enter your credit card details at Google and create an API key. You get $200 free usage a month (≈ 28.500 map connections) and if you exceed this they start billing you. Unfortunately these changes are made by Google and not by us, we can't do anything about this. On this link you can read more about these changes.
If you don't want to enter your credit card details there is an alternative to add a map to your website. The iframe embedded map will remain free for usage and don't require any account nor credit card details. Unfortunately this map can only display 1 location and don't have any other options than width and height.
To add this map to your website please remove the "QT: Google Maps" from the page builder and remove the API key from the customizer (if you don't have an API key at all you can skip this step).
Then follow these steps and on Google Maps and add the copied HTML code in a "Custom HTML" widget to the page builder. This is the most basic way of adding a Google Map to your website and will be free for usage.
