PayPal Confirmed Address Required to Complete Billing

I have recieved a promo code for the GitHub student developer pack, but before I can use it I need to verify my billing information. As I am a student, I do not have a credit card. When I attempt to pay through PayPal, it says that DigitalOcean requires that I verify the address associated with my PayPal account. The only way that I can do this is by linking a credit card to my PayPal account, but I do not have a credit card. Is there any other way to complete the billing setup and use my promo code?

Hey @bchay9,

In our public community, we aim to answer open questions about anything SysAdmin, DigitalOcean and beyond. However, we make every attempt to keep personal information safe and so don’t ever access personal account information here. This means we can’t provide help with any account or billing-related issues.

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

Hope that helps!

I would open a ticket with the support team. I think they have other means of verification.
