Google API keys 150 150 SimplyDelivery Academy

The installation of the GoogleMaps API Keys has to be done for every single store.
After the generation process we need to include the API Key into the system of SimplyDelivery. Therefore we need to enter them into the store settings in the „webshop“ tab.

If you are the manager of more than one store with the same company name you need to create only one account for all of your stores. We will need only one API key which can be used for all of your stores. Within this account you have to set up different projects for each store. A new account only has to be created if the company name is a different one than the one of your other store.


store A > company name 1 account 1 project 1

store B > company name 1 account 1 project 2

store C > company name 2 account 2

store D > company name 3 account 3

store E > company name 1 account 1 project 3
