Creating a Google API Key

To create a Google Places API key to use with our Reviews plugin, follow the steps below.

1) Go to Google’s Cloud Console Billing page, and set up a new billing account to your Places API key.

2) Open the Google Maps Platform page.

3) From the drop-down menu at the top of the page, create a new project.

4) Enter a name for this project and click “Create

5) Navigate to “Credentials” on the left side of the screen, then click the “Create Credentials” option, and select “API Key” (Make sure the correct project is selected on the drop-down menu at the top of the page).

6) Once your API key is active, you can copy it and use it on the Reviews Plugin. 


Note: if you want to restrict the API key …

Currently, the Google API Key can not be restricted. We are working on improving how this works on our end so that proper IP restriction can be used.
