The most frequently requested Google Maps / WordPress integration we recieve is to use Google services as a milage calculator so that the distance in miles or kilometers can be used for billing purposes.
This lead to the creation of TransitQuote – a Google Maps distance calculator for WordPress with a long list of features and options that allow businesses from any of the above verticals to automatically generate price quotes on their website.
The integration of WooCommerce as the payment plugin for TransitQuote gives businesses the option of using almost any online credit card or payment processessing service to accept payment online.
The ability to automatically generate prices and accept payments without staff interaction is a huge time saver and completes the core of the TransitQuote transportation booking and payment system.
