# Using Google Map
Rubenz comes with Elementor widget based on Google Map with a lot of customization options. But before you can use it, you need to obtain a correct API key from Google Cloud (opens new window). Google now requires credit card to use their map API (even if you don’t have a lot of visitors which loads their server anyway).
# ▶️️️️️ Step 1.
From admin panel go to
Settings → Google Maps
# ▶️️️️️ Step 2.
Paste your API key that you’ve got from Google Cloud (opens new window) and click
Save Changes button.
The API key used in live demo will NOT work on your website! You need to get your own one if you want to use Google Maps on your website.
# ▶️️️️️ Step 3.
If you’ve done everything correctly then
Google Map Elementor widget will display a working map. Here you can add markers, change map style and make other adjustments.
Still having issues?
If you’ve setup a correct API key but still experiencing issues with the Google Map check your browser console and see the error produced by Google Map. For the available solutions please check error messages knowledgebase (opens new window)
