The elina platform, as well as a number of our websites, has an integration with Google Maps, which requires an API key in order to work. We use Google Maps to display your properties and to geolocalise them.
In order to use this Google-provided service, you are required to set up billing information in the Google Maps Platform and generate an API key that elina needs to access its service.
After support team updates the API key on elina back end in order to use the View On Map option in the elina booking engine, or if you have chosen to use the Rentals United channel manager or Pricelabs Revenue Manager integration, you need to Add GEO locations for your accommodation types in elina.
