    Hi @orangecountywebsites,

    It should be for free and it’s a Google gives free credits, not we, the plugin just uses a Google API to show the reviews.

    Recently, Google has disabled the use of Places API for free and introduced the mandatory enabling a Billing. Unfortunately, since the plugin uses this Places API to show reviews, you need to enable Billing on your Google account. It’s a limitation of Google, not specifically the plugin.

    You can enable a Billing here https://console.cloud.google.com/project/_/billing/enable and learn more about it here https://developers.google.com/maps/gmp-get-started.

    Google is currently giving $200 free credit a month and it should be enough to use the plugin for connecting several Google places without additional fees except this free $200 credits.

    If you have any questions please let us know.

    Thanks!`
