Google Maps Platform is changing to a pay-as-you-go billing starting June 11. You get $200 dollars in free credit each month but you will need a Google Cloud Platform billing account to use maps and this requires a credit card.
My problem is:
1,Should I contact all my past clients to see if they want to give cc info or just let the map part of their sites break. (I have had nothing to do with some for years!).
2, Will theme authors keep using google maps in their theme options and short codes? I would rather they used a free alternative.
