Manage invoices/billing for droplets separately & independently

Hi, I’ve multiple droplets in which I have hosted apps for my clients, I want to know if there is any way (or API) to handle billing of each droplet independently? Like I want to send invoices for respective droplet to each client and if they don’t pay, I’ll stop the droplet etc. In my case, a client of mine is responsible for paying one or multiple droplet invoices, so can I handle them independently? I just want to know which droplet has what amount and when it is due, so it’ll be sent to the client.

Any builtin functionality that I’m unaware of or any API that can handle this?

Dear [DIGITALOCEAN] Team, I want to reactivate my account on [DIGITALOCEAN] which was deactivated on [04/04/2024].

I already understand [DIGITALOCEAN’s] policy and have taken steps to ensure violations are not repeated.

Please grant my request.

Unfortunately, this is not possible with the API at the moment as built-in functionality. I’ll also recommend using a billing tool like WHMCS or Hostbill

These tools will automatically provision Droplets and offer your clients tools to manage the servers in your WHMCS.

As mentioned this is not a feature that the API has at the moment or a feature withing the DigitalOcean panel.

With that being said, if you post this as an idea/feature reqeust in the ideas board, please to provide us with the link, I’m eager to upvote it to help it to get some traction.
