Google Maps Address Add-on

With Google Maps Address functionality enabled, your customers will be able to quickly and easily fill out the address form at the Details step of the booking process using Google Maps autocomplete service. When a user starts typing an address, there are real-time suggestions both for street addresses and business names, which significantly reduces errors and greatly hastens the whole booking process.

Get the Bookly Google Maps Address Add-on here and let your customers enter their address fast and accurate.

Setup and configuration

1. Purchase, download and activate the Google Maps Address add-on in Plugins.

2. Go to Bookly menu > Settings > Google Maps.

Enter a Google places API key that you got after registering your app project on the Google API Console. Read here how to get an API Key – https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/get-api-key, or follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Google API Console.
  2. Create or select a project. Click Continue to enable the API. Select Google Places API Web Service from the drop-down and click on the button below.
  3. On the Credentials page, get an API key (and set the API key restrictions). Note: If you have an existing unrestricted API key, or a key with server restrictions, you may use that key.
  4. Click Library on the left sidebar menu. Make sure that Google Maps JavaScript API and Google Places API Web Service are enabled.

3. In Bookly menu > Appearance > Details tab, make sure that the boxes next to the Show address fields and Show google maps field are checked.

    Hello,
    is there any way to show in the booking form a map with a marker centered on the address and add a checkbox to ask the customer for confirmation?

    Is there shortcode for the Google Maps Add-on to show the Street Address in the Email and SMS Notifications.

    Hi Carolyn, yes, you can use the {client_address} code to return the customer's address to email and SMS notifications.

    Hi, does this work when adding a client address in the admin? Is it possible to pass the {client_address} field to Google Calendars?

    Thanks for your help
