If you receive the error message, "Error finding your address. Please review your criteria and try again" message, this generally means that there are missing APIs within your Google account.

  • Maps Embed API
  • Maps JavaScript API
  • Maps SDK for Android
  • Maps SDK for iOS

If you receive a "Google has disabled use of the Maps API..." message when you navigate to the Store Locator page, it's usually due to a problem setting up the API key.

One reason this could occur is that a website address is in the referrers section, this should be left blank. If there's a URL here, remove it and save, the Store Locator page should now work.

Another reason this message may be showing is "Google Maps JavaScript API v3" is not turned on. Select the status button to toggle it on; the Store Locator page will now work.
