Integrate Google API in my Project

Urgent, need to integrate google place API for free, gotten my API key don’t know if that gives me a free pass.

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some parts of what you are asking may be pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:

Yes, I agree with ArielLeslie.

As to google API pricing - there is a wide range of services. There is some pricing information here. I once did a project where I did a microservice using a google API, here.

I’m just curious, in what situation do you have an urgent need to integrate the google API?

Integrating it for a project, seeing that the free trial is for a year.
Asking if I have the API key if I can use it for free.

I guess I’m confused by the question. You say that “the free trial is for a year”. I infer from that that it will be free for 365 days and that you may incur some expenses after that. i gave a link to their pricing, so that should give you an idea.

Usually these things cost next to nothing until you get into large volumes. Often you can put limits on the account so it will warn you and/or cut it off if it hits a limit. You can probably also set it up so that it will only take requests from your site and you can control access there.

okay, thank you very much
