Add Google Maps API to Mapply

In order to allow your customers to perform a search, you will need to generate a Google Maps API key. This is required by Mapply, as Mapply uses Google's API to locate and display your store locations.

To create the API key, you will need a Google account. If you are using a Gmail email account, you may use this.

If you do not have a Gmail email account, please visit Google Account Signup.

 Caution

At this time, Mapply is unavailable for new installations. If you are currently using Mapply, you will be able to continue using the app as your account will now be grandfathered.
