How to activate me account?

November 23, 2014 1.3k views

I'm 17 years old student from Russia. I have got a 100$ GitHub education coupon for DigitalOcean, but I can't activate my account because I can't to get a credit card and create a PayPal account. Are there any ways to activate my account (with debit card or something else)?

  • As per the normal rule, you need to add a card or send some money (USD 5) from Paypal to get the account activated, but I am not sure about their special rules (if they have any) for Students !!

    Better wait for staff member to answer or if you dont get any reply here, you can open a support ticket from your account to seek clarification about the same..
