MySLP is a monthly subscription service that allows you to deploy a locator map on ANY platform including WordPress. It is a managed service where we handle the hosting of the locations, settings, and map software. We keep the software updated so you don’t have to worry about it.
These instructions DO NOT APPLY to WordPress plugins.
For our buy-it-and-own-it solution you will want to look at the WPSLP plugins instead.

You’ve already added your locations and generated your embed code per the instructions in our Getting Started post. Now you are ready to deploy on your WordPress site.
Here we are going to deploy the script in a new page on our site.
My Store Locator Plus can be deployed on any website technology that can publish basic HTML pages. The functionality of the service depends more on the browser technology used by your site visitors than your web stack.
The most basic deployment is a local HTML file that is opened by your web browser. Your desktop or laptop and even some mobile devices will allow you to create a basic HTML file on your device. You can then open this file using that device’s web browser.
Click on an upgrade or downgrade button for the new level you wish to use.
If you subscribed using PayPal you will be asked to login to your PayPal account and approve the new monthly payment amount.
Once you have agreed to the new payment you will be brought back to the My Profile page and the new subscription level will be active.
Note: PayPal can take up to 72 hours to process a subscription change. You may see your subscription details showing a status of Pending with a resubscribe button during this period. You do not need to resubscribe.
Note: PayPal does not support direct subscription upgrades or downgrades. The subscription details will show the total paid for the newest level of service only. It will show $0.00 during the pending process and the accrued monthly amount once PayPal has activated your new subscription level on their end.
Note: Starting in March 2017 you can now pay with a credit card via Stripe. This will not interact in any way with PayPal and allows you to purchase subscriptions on a credit card.
WordPress Store Locator Plus add ons can be purchased with a credit card. To do so go through the normal checkout procedure. When the PayPal login screen appears choose the “Pay with Debit or Credit Card” button on the bottom of the screen. Fill out your details for the credit card information.
This will allow you to make the purchase and have it billed directly to your credit card WITHOUT going through a PayPal account.
The Default With Font Tweaks Style is one of the styles that highlights locations and is a good starting point for testing this functionality. You can adjust the layout and styling afterwards to meet your specific design requirements.
