GOOGLE MAPS PLATFORM


Google is adding a few changes to how Google Maps is being managed and its pricing models.

The process starts on June 11th, 2018 with the junction of their 18 individual APIs into three new groups: Maps, Routes and Places.

A new pricing model accompanies these products: Pay as you go pricing plan, which reinforces the use of valid API keys and a billing account. When a customer enables billing, they get access to $200 free usage every month for Maps, Route or Places. With this new pricing plan the customer will pay only for the services they use each month with no annual usage limits or termination fees.

New Google Maps Platform pricings will be official and running on 16th July 2018.

As the leading Premier Partner in Fintech, Travel, Transport and Real Estate, Snowdrop Solutions supports Google Maps customers in this transition process. Snowdrop can help you move your plan, whether Standard or Premium, to the new Google Maps Platform with the minimum disruption, and if required optimise the usage and cost-effectiveness of your deployments.


STANDARD PLAN CUSTOMERS


The information above affect all the Standard Plan Customers from July 16th, 2018.

If you are not sure about if you are using a Google Maps Platform API key, please use the Google Transition Tool to figure out and see which of your projects have valid API keys.

PREMIUM PLAN CUSTOMERS


Official changes to the new Pay-as-you-go pricing model will be made later this year - or earlier if your current contract expires soon.
