Frequently Asked Questions
- What do I get for free? Can I try before buying?
With the monthly $200 free credit for Maps, Routes, or Places, the vast majority of customers find their use cases to be completely free. You won't be charged until your usage exceeds $200 in a month. Usage of the Maps Embed API, Maps SDK for Android and iOS is also free without using your credit.
- Why is a credit card or billing account required? How do know I won't get charged?
We ask for your credit card or billing account to cover any amount you spend over the $200 monthly free credit. You can set quotas or limits on your daily requests to ensure sudden increased usage doesn't exceed your budget or cause an unexpected bill. Learn how to set daily limits here .
- What is the pricing after the free monthly credit?
Pricing is based on monthly usage of requests, per the rates in the above table. For simplicity, prices listed are per 1,000 requests, but you will be billed per request. Learn more
