I'm working on a zap for a delivery company that charges based on the distance they need to drive.  Is there a way to integrate Google Maps with Zapier?

Hi @GenjitsuUser 

Good question.

You’d have to use the GMaps API: https://developers.google.com/maps/apis-by-platform

App APIs can be used in Zaps with the Webhooks app or Code app.

 

There are also other apps/APIs that can be used to calculate distances between locations that may be easier to integrate than GMaps.

Hi @GenjitsuUser - Sounds like a great use case.  My team and I were working with a client on a similar type of scope. We developed a Google Maps Zapier Integration that we are inviting others to use.  You can sign up for access here: https://thirddegreeleverage.com/googlemaps/.  I hope this helps.

Which apis do you have in mind ? I’m also looking for a way to calculate travel time or distance from A to B.
Thanks for you advise !

Hey there, @Guillaume Servonnat! Thanks for reaching out. I did a quick search and came up with this:

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/distance-matrix/overview

It’s still Google but could be worth checking out. 🙂
