what i am doing is just put money.
Click setting, billing and pay them for example 10$ or 20$.
and forget it. this is what I am doing. so I mean you must have money In your droplet.
And it is easy to add it using paypal.

  • Thanks a lot @Abdo .. As my plan is 5$ per month… I want to pay some of my months payment in advance… How could i do that…

    • No just leave money in your account.
      Click on setting, then billing. you must add money, and you can see your existing money.
      In my account is 30$, NOW i do not think about money.
      Just add some money and you are done.


If you use a Credit/Debit Card, you don’t need to worry about topping off your account. If you choose to use PayPal instead, you’ll need to keep up with the balance and ensure that your credit balance is equal to or more than your expected spend.

  • Thanks, daer @jtittle

      With the PayPal option, you’re responsible for topping off your account, it won’t auto-charge your PayPal account unless you have a PayPal Mastercard and that’s what you’re using.

      If you’re simply paying via PayPal the normal way, you’ll have to keep your account topped off.
