  1. Go to your WordPress admin area, then WooCommerceFlux Checkout. Paste the API key into the “Google API Key” field. Click “Save Changes“.
  2. Ensure that you have configured billing information for your Google account. It’s unlikely to be used, but Google requires it now in order for the APIs to work. You can do this by clicking the menu icon and then “Billing“.

Done!

Address autocompletion should now be working on your checkout page. Note that it is disabled when an address is already filled in.

Address Translation

Do you need your address to show up in a different language? You can add a language identifier to your Google Places API key.

In the plugin settings, where your Google API Key is saved, add: YOURAPIKEY?language=ja
