Google recently has changed it’s pricing model: You now get a $200 free credit, that you can use per month. Everything else needs to be payed – in detail the Autocomplete & Geocoding service, we use to get a lat / lng from an address. You can use Google’s Map Pricing Calculator here to get a cost overview.Example:
- Maps Rendering
- Autocomplete -> 13.000 requests per Month
- Geocoding -> 20.000 Requests per Month
- Subtotal: $137
- Credit: $200
- Costs: $0
Depending on how many Geocoding / Autocomplete request you receive you may need to pay.
You can turn off Autocomplete for example to save costs.
