Hello there,

Payments with cryptocurrency are not yet officially supported via your DigitalOcean account, but if you’re interested in payments via cryptocurrency please check

DigitalOcean accepts the following payment methods:

Credit and debit cards. You can set credit and debit cards as your primary payment method. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, UnionPay, Diners Club, and JCB credit cards.

Credit and debit cards from India need to be enabled for international transactions. Cards issued by Citibank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, IndusInd Bank, RBL Bank, Axis Bank and Kotak Mahindra Bank are less likely to be declined than other banks.

Third-party providers, like PayPal, Google Pay, and Apple Pay. We accept pre-payment using PayPal but you cannot use it as your primary payment method.

We do not accept a virtual, electron, or prepaid cards.

You can add, modify, and remove payment methods on the Billing page in the Payment methods section.

You can check our Billing Docs here:

Hope that this helps!

Hi @sleepinggreenbluejellyfish,

You can’t pay with cryptocurrency at this time. I think the only ways to pay are over Paypal or a credit card. Having said that, for payment issues I’ll always suggest reaching the DigitalOcean’s support rather than the community here. While we do try to help in every situation possible, we don’t have access to such matters as billing.

Please reach out to our amazing support team who will be more than happy to assist you with! :)

Hope that helps!
