We are excited to announce that Apple Pay® is now available as a payment option on DigitalOcean! With this update, you can use Apple Pay to create a DigitalOcean account and for your recurring payments.

DigitalOcean was founded 10 years ago with the mission to simplify cloud computing so that developers and businesses can spend more time building software that changes the world. 

An important aspect of this mission is to make it easier for developers and businesses to access our platform. Over the years, we have added 'Sign up with Apple' and 'Sign up with GitHub' options to ease the account creation process. We also expanded our payment options to include PayPal and Google Pay.  

Apple Pay enables frictionless card payments eliminating the need to manually type your card repeatedly. If you are signed in to an Apple account with an existing wallet, all you have to do is click the payment button, choose one of your previously linked payment sources, and you are good to go. On many devices, you can use Touch ID to authorize for added security. For privacy reasons, your payment information used for Apple Pay payments is sent securely and not stored by DigitalOcean. 

Requirements to use Apple Pay

  • Apple Pay is only supported with Safari-based browsers with iOS 10 or macOS Sierra.
  • You must be signed in and have Apple Pay set up
  • Your Apple pay wallet must have a valid credit or debit card linked to it. 

If you already have a DigitalOcean account you may choose to change your payment option on file to Apple Pay. You can use it for both one-time payments and for recurring payments.

If you would like to have a conversation about using DigitalOcean for your business, please contact our sales team.

Happy coding,

Ryan Balsick
