Google APIs offer $200 worth of API request free every month so if you are a small startup, that’s more than enough for you.
Pro tip: with our survey, we have found that the most expensive API is the Google Maps that is shown on the Order Tracking Page. When the customer is waiting for the food, they seem to move on the map to explore and it cost you money.
For this, we have provided an option to disable the Google Maps on the Order Tracking Page.
Go to the Admin Dashboard > Settings > Google Maps and Disable the Show Map on the Order Tracking Page setting.
P.S $200 worth of API requests can easily handle a small startup business.
When you scale your business, obviously you will have to pay for Google APIs if your API requests are high.
Foodomaa™ relies on many APIs from Google like Maps API, Geocoding API, Distance Matrix API, etc. So, integrating a different service is not an alternative for us.
