Hi there,

I’ve just tried creating a new Droplet under the Frankfurt region and it seems to be working as expected.

Are you trying to create a Droplet under your personal account or a team account? If it is a team account not that you need to be either an Owner or a Member of the team, as if you have a Biller role, you would not be able to create Droplets.

If you are still seeing the problem, I could suggest reaching out to the DigitalOcean support team who would be more than happy to assist you with your account issue:

Hope that helps! - Bobby.
