Google Maps License Process

Information


Our platform allows for the integration of your own Google Maps License. The Google Maps License allows you to utilize map data for location-based features in your mobile applications. You must obtain a license from Google to use those features.

Some of the features that utilize map data:

  • Booking
  • Commerce
  • Contact ​
  • Maps
  • Places
  • Social Wall
