Is there a way to move a droplet from one account to another digital ocean account, if yes what is the process.

You can transfer a droplet to another account by taking a snapshot of the droplet, transferring the snapshot to the other account and then re-creating the droplet.

You might be interested in setting up a Team Account so that you can easily create droplets under your client’s account while they manage everything else such as billing: Team Accounts: Share Resources Not Passwords.

Hope that this helps!
