my billing and payment explanation

Posted February 10, 2015 3.5k views

Hi, this is my first month using digital ocean. So, I do not quite understand the payment system here.

I am using the $10/month.
I got a promo code $5, so I just sent $5 from my paypal.
And now I get an invoice $6.22 for 01-14 13:34 to 01-31 23:59
For February, I’ve already got $3.21 and increasing time by time.
My balance $0.57 now

Can you please explain how do you calculate the payment?
How to make it fix price $10/month?

Thanks a lot

How am I billed?
Each droplet is billed per hour up to its monthly cap.

Hi Woet, thanks for your answer.

Does it mean mybilling $3.21 for february will be stop at $10?
Thanks again.

If you are not destroying droplet in a month. you will only charged $10. But i think you have re created it many time.

You can rebuild droplet instead destroy. It will not effect payment.
