To set the location for your products, the plugin uses Google Maps services. So the first step is to insert the“Google Maps API Key”.
After selecting the project, in the next step, you will obtain the key required by the plugin.
Copy and paste the key into YITH Plugins -> Bookings -> Google Maps API Key.
Now access the product, type in the name of the location you wish to select and you are done.
You can set 2 different API Keys for:
- Google Maps API Key
- Google Maps Geocode API Key
To set them correctly, you should create 2 different API Keys in Google Console:
1. The Google Maps API Key can be restricted through HTTP referrers.
2. The Google Maps Geocode API Key can be restricted through IP addresses.
