How do I choose my payout option for DigitalOcean's referral program?

November 3, 2014 1k views

I've seen the post about this but can't find the "Referral Program Settings" options to switch to Paypal Payouts. Has this now been changed to only provide credit? I ask because I have recently referred quite a few people and I'm simply going to have more credit than I require.

I believe that the Referral Program was changed to only give DigitalOcean credit. While you might be disappointed, I can understand the business reasons behind not paying out real money for referrals.

  • That's correct -- the referral bonus was raised to $25 and the PayPal payout option was removed.

I see, well I understand the logic behind it but it is a little restrictive. Maybe the old documentation should be removed from the FAQ until it can at least be updated.

May I also ask Is there a way to transfer credit to another account via the API? I could then release my own credits to further promote DO.

Mmm, I will continue spreading the word if they pay my bills... ;)
