Geocoding API usage and costs

  • Hallo all,
    I need to know when the Geocoding API is used when managing a superstore finder for wordpress.
    Are gocoding APIs used only when importing stores?
    Or are they used when a user browse the superstore finder?
    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Hi Tony,

    Thanks for reaching out, the geocoding is mainly used for import as well as whenever a user types his/her address, Google will need to geocode that address into coordinates (latitude/longitude) in order for the map to be able to show nearby stores. Showing x number stores will not be affected as the stores are in the database, only when the user performs a location search.
