Hi there,

Your key is throwing a referrer not allowed error:

When you created your API key you set a domain on the key so make sure that is using and not or something else.

You do that from here:

Ok I did all that. Now it is just a blank grey space instead of a map. Any ideas what to do ?

This the error being thrown now:

Geocoding Service: You must enable Billing on the Google Cloud Project at Learn more at

Google maps are no longer free to use so you’ll need to enable billing on your account for it to work, work through the steps here:

Once billing has been abled the map should then load.

Thank you for the help! I actually realized that I have another plug-in that some how has a block(WP added one) with “Google Map” and I can use that block code and display in the description of the venue and get free Google map still.

Strange, whilst I’m glad you’ve found a solution the fee for using Google Maps isn’t from us but Google Maps themselves so I can’t think how the above is/will remain free.

The cheapest option Google maps has is for Static maps but even those are $2 per 1000 requests, although it’s free for mobile (see HERE)
