How to charge PayPal into the DO like the debit payment on DO?


I want to pay some money into DO by Paypal. Because I still don’t want to pay by credit at this time.

So the minimum payment is $5, but I can not bill if my current pay of me is less than $5.

Can you help me make a bill to support so I can charge more money into the DO by Paypal?

Hey @tuanhai12h,

At the moment we accept pre-payment using PayPal but you cannot use it as your primary payment method. When using PayPal, your account balance will update after your payment is processed, which often takes several hours due to PayPal’s processing. PayPal also sometimes holds payments for up to 72 hours, meaning PayPal has received your money but hasn’t sent it to us yet, but the payment will still apply once PayPal releases it.

In our public community, we aim to answer open questions about anything SysAdmin, DigitalOcean and beyond. However, we make every attempt to keep personal information safe and so don’t ever access personal account information here. This means we can’t provide help with any account or billing-related issues.

If you still need help or additional information you can reach out to our amazing support team who will be more than happy to assist you with your account issue! :)

Hope that helps!

Hi @tuanhai12h,

You can go to your Control Panel --> Billing --> Make a Payment --> Custom Amount --> Select PayPal as Payment method.

That should do the trick for you.
