Question

I think my Billing is wrong

Posted July 2, 2014 1.9k views

Hi, I need some help with this…
Last month, I consumed 212 hours of the most basic server ($ 0.007 / hr)
The thing is that $ 0.007 / hr * 212 hr = $ 1.484, but the charge is for $1.58
I don’t understand why…

Thanks =)

Hi!

For billing question, please open a support ticket so that the team can check out your account’s details:

Without knowing the specifics of your situation, on thing that jumps to mind is that if you are spinning up droplets and destroying them after short amounts of time you might see something like this. The per hour price is per droplet, and it is rounded up to the nearest $0.01. So if you launch a droplet for under an hour and then destroy it, the price is $0.01 If that’s the case, it should be clear by looking at your invoice in the billing section:

meybe the 1.58 is for last this month not last month?
