But in the profile area right up it says "Thanks! Please add a credit card to activate your account." so it is a little confusing. I understand that if I don't add a credit card I cannot activate my account therefore I cannot instantiate a server. As I see it from your response you can pay with paypal and create a droplet without adding a credit card, am I right? Thanks!
This is still a problem for me. I have money on paypal, but I don't have a credit card. But trying pay through digitalocean needs a credit card. Paying, however, on steam doesn't have problem. So it's a little weird if the problem it's paypal. Why this happens here and don't happens on another places? Ebay works as well. There is indeed a problem here to be fixed.
