Free $50 Credit available on use of Debit Card or PayPal?

I am willing to purchase droplets from DigitalOcean as they are the cheapest and the best option currently available in my country. However as mentioned in the question, is the free $50 credit available for use if I use a Debit Card or PayPal to sign up and make payments?

It doesn’t sound good to ask such a question but simply put the plans being cheap are difficult for me to pay as I am a student who has no income whatsoever. So a 1 month headstart will prove to be of much help for me as I host my WebSite. Also is it that the credit has to be used in collaboration with actual payments by us?

Thanks in advance.

Frequently asked Questions:

  • How do I get the credit? If you are eligible, your free trial will start when you sign up for DigitalOcean. You will need a credit card or valid paypal account so that we can verify your identity, but you will not be charged or billed during your free trial.

  • Who is eligible? New customers to DigitalOcean with a valid credit card or paypal account are eligible. You are eligible if you have not previously signed up for the free trial.

  • How does it expire? 60 days after the credit was added, any remaining credit will be zeroed out. If you continue to use our paid services after the 60 days your credit card will be charged at the beginning of the following month.

  • What products can I use the credit on? You can use it on any services provided by DigitalOcean, for example all Droplet plans, Spaces object storage, Block Storage, and Load Balancers. NOTE: We offer this Free Trial to help make building amazing things on DigitalOcean as easy and accessible as possible. Mining cryptocurrencies doesn’t fit that criteria and will result in removal of credits.

Can I use all my $50 credit in buying a droplet for 10 months.
