There is a problem with adress bar auto completion. That's doesn't work again !
Hi Frederic, as you may already be aware Google Maps have made their API use a paid feature. They only allow so many requests to the API for free and anything above that has to be paid. We are in negotiations with Google to allow each of our clients to provide their own API keys and pay for their own extra usage but so far we have no definite reply by Google if that is at all possible. We have been paying the extra usage for everyone so far but there is a certain limit on our capability to pay the bills and this is why the outage of address search has occurred. We have raised the limit of the bill but this is only a temporary solution until Google gives us a definite reply on how we have to proceed. If they disallow separate usage of the API keys for each company we will have to raise the prices of the software to cover that extra cost.
Hope this helps. You shouldn't be having any problems at the moment. Kind regards.
I understand that the setup page with Api Key doesn't work actually ?
I said that because, i would like to use my own key and maybe pay for that, but i have no stat on google platform page meanwhile i use my own key... and i don't unsterstood why...
Hi Frederic, at the moment Google does not allow usage of different API keys from the same domain (https://booking.drivenot.com) and this is something that we are trying to negotiate with Google with no luck so far. Right now the section with your own API keys is not functional even if you have provided your keys. We hope for a positive outcome with Google, otherwise, we will have to change our pricing model.
