Question about credit uploaded with PayPal.

Posted January 5, 2014 2.6k views
Hi! 4 days ago I created a VPS droplet that costs 10$/month and uploaded 10$ of credit in the process. Right now, my droplet is running and the credit shows 10$. Does that mean that I have paid 10$ for the droplet already or do I have to somehow manually use this 10$ credit to pay for the droplet? Whats the deadline for the next payment? Thanks in advance!

Once you've added the credit to your account, charges incurred from droplets will automatically be deducted. A likely reason that your credit is still showing as $10 is due to caching, the credit remaining may take some time to update.
