    There were changes in google maps pricing and this solution might not work well for very popular communities.

     

    It will make geolocation request on each profile visit by any user. So the count of these requests will grow pretty fast.

    A more accurate solution will be to geolocate user's address on signup and edition of the address and store.

    Thanks Eugene,

    noticed the new pricing and was concerned what happens in the future as a site grows

    Thanks for that.

     

    "A more accurate solution will be to geolocate user's address on signup and edition of the address and store."

     

    How is this implemented? is this custom work or just using what we've got?

    #1 geolocate user's address on signup > you mean use the "Location" Qtn in profile?

    #2 and store.. >> is this custom or just user saving his location in profile and it will automatically use only his profile location and hence save us money?

     

    Thanks
