Pay-As-You-Go Pricing

The Maps JavaScript API uses a pay-as-you-go pricing model.

How usage and billing work under the pay-as-you-go model

  • The Google Maps Platform APIs are billed by SKU.
  • Usage is tracked for each Product SKU, and an API may have more than one Product SKU.
  • 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.

See guide to understanding billing for more information.
