    It seems to ask a billing account to do the procedure descibed above…. It is correct ? you need to provide a credit card number ?

      We have been using Go2StreetView for the past few years in our business. Since it started requiring the API Key, I advised each user to set up a work account for the API they use at work. This is only for occasional use of this excellent plugin, no other projects.

      Now with this requirement for a billing account, I am wondering whether we can carry on using the plugin at all, and if so, how best to arrange it. It is a shame.
