Understanding Billing for Maps, Routes, and Places

A new pay-as-you-go pricing model is coming for the Google Maps Platform APIs. On June 11, 2018, we’re launching new Maps, Routes, and Places functionality, and changing the way certain APIs and features are billed. This page helps you understand the details of the new pricing structure for each Google Maps Platform API, and how charges for use will be calculated.

To estimate your monthly bill under the new pricing model, use our pricing calculator.

  • Starting on June 11, 2018: All API changes will be live and available to try free of charge until July 16th, 2018.
  • Between June 11 and July 16, 2018:
    • Your use of the Google Maps Platform APIs will continue to be billed under the current pricing model.
    • If you have enabled billing on your project, you will see the new SKUs on your bill for usage after June 11th. If billing is not enabled, the new SKUs will not be visible.
    • To provide you with an additional month of lead time, our new terms and pricing won’t go into effect until July 16, 2018.
    • During this transition period, on your bill you will see the old SKUs (for usage before June 11) as well as the new SKUs (for usage starting on June 11). For products with revised billing, the new SKUs that represent the new features and pricing model will display a usage count, but at a $0.00 cost. Please take advantage of this time to try the new features and familiarize yourself with how billing will work.
  • Starting on July 16, 2018: The new pricing model goes into effect and you will see charges for the new SKUs on your bill. Note: You must enable billing on each of your projects to continue to use the Google Maps Platform APIs. If you choose not to add a billing account, your maps will be degraded, or other Maps API requests will return an error.

Overview of billing for the Google Maps Platform products

  • Usage is tracked for each Product SKU.
  • A SKU is the combination of the Product API + the service or function called (for example, Places API - Place Details).
  • A product may have multiple SKUs billed at different rates (for example, Places API - Place Details; Places API - Autocomplete - Per Character).
  • SKU pricing is tiered, based on volume of use, with three tiers: 0–100,000; 100,001–500,000; 500,001+.
  • Cost is calculated by SKU Usage x Price per each use.
  • For each billing account, for qualifying Google Maps Platform SKUs, a $200 USD Google Maps Platform credit is available each month, and automatically applied to the qualifying SKUs.
  • When you view your billing report, each line item lists Cost Before Credit, Credit, and Cost After Credit.

View your billing report

Billing reports for your use of the Google Maps Platform products are available in the Google Cloud Platform Console. To view the report for your billing account:

  1. Go to the Google Maps section in the Google Cloud Platform Console.
  2. On the Overview page, in the Billing card, select Go to Maps billing report.

Alternatively, follow these steps to view your billing report:

  1. Go to the Google Maps section in the Google Cloud Platform Console.
  2. Open the console left side menu and click Billing.
  3. If you have more than one billing account, select Go to linked billing account to view the current project's billing account. To locate a different billing account, select Manage billing accounts and choose the account for which you'd like to see reports.
  4. Select Reports from the left side menu.

How to read the billing report chart

Billing reports plot cost over time as a stacked line chart. The default view is the current month’s daily usage-specific costs by project for all products, inclusive of any usage-specific credits applied. Each line in the chart corresponds to the project, ranked largest to smallest by cost.

Figure 1: The billing report displaying chart and table using the default preset view.

Tip: Analyze the usage and cost per SKU

To more accurately understand the details of the new pricing structure and how it impacts your implementation, look at your usage and cost by SKU.

  2. Select SKU.

Other filters available in the billing report include Time range, Projects, Products, and SKUs.

About Autocomplete sessions

An Autocomplete session includes some Autocomplete requests (to retrieve suggestions on a place as the user types), and at most one Places Details request (to retrieve details about the place selected by the user). The same session token is passed to the Autocomplete and the subsequent Place Detail request. A session starts with the first Autocomplete request (which typically happens when the user starts typing). A Places Details call is made when the user has selected one of the Autocomplete suggestions. If a user does not select a suggestion, no Places Details call is made.

After a user has selected a place (ie, a Places Details call is made), you must start a new session using a new session token.

Autocomplete sessions can be generated from the following APIs:

A session token is good for one user session and should not be used for more than one user session. If you reuse a session token, the session is considered invalid and the requests are charged as if no session token was provided.

The Autocomplete requests and the Places Details requests using sessions are billed on different SKUs.


About Places Data SKUs

One or more Data SKUs are triggered for each Places request, depending on the fields that are specified in the request.

The following Places APIs calls support specifying the returned fields:

The following Places APIs calls do not support specifying the returned fields. These call always trigger the three Places Data SKUs for each API request:
