Waiting for Google to get in touch for Business license - no answer

Hi there,

This is not really a technical question.
But basically my company needs to purchase Business Maps API license from Google.

I filled in the form to get in touch with them and supplied telephone numbers last week.
Have not heard anything back from Google.

Submitted another form yesterday again, no news from Google.

Not sure why this is taking so long for Google to get in touch.

Does anybody have any experience of dealing with Google to purchase Business Maps API or any other business API product.

I wonder if I am doing something wrong here.

Many thanks in advance.

Google is notorious for taking its time to respond to anything.
If you have an AdWords account you may want to contact them and see if you can get them to put you through to someone - if you are lucky whoever you get thru to in Adwords may be helpful

If you are buying something, they have phone numbers.  

To purchase an api, start at the console https://code.google.com/apis/console and activate billing and turn on the map api.

Google is not much in to human to human contact unless it involves transaction with at least 8-digits on check.  

They have a dominant position in everything they do and they want to make sure you understand that you are not important to them.

I checked the console and have not managed anywhere to find how to request Business Maps API license.

There are various Maps API entries under services but nothing to do with accessing google web services maps api.

Just wanted to post an update on this.

Got a call from Google!

Took a week and a half for them to get back.

But at least things are now starting to move forward.
