      I am using your geolocate functionality which is great. But it seems like the (now very expensive) google api is called by script for every page that is opened. No matter if there is actually a map embedded or not.

      In google cloud services the cost are associated with that service: “Maps API Dynamic Maps”. I am using the Places API and the JavaScript API.

      Is there any chance to reduce API calls to the minimum? And also is Places API really required for geo search?

      Well, WCFM Marketplace require only Google JavaScript Map API, it does not require such high paid map api.

      Thank You
