I redeemed my student pack a couple months ago and have been using a droplet since then :)

I just recommended it to a friend of mine and she got accepted into the program, but she doesn’t have a credit card nor Paypal.

I activated my account through Paypal, so the two questions are:

1) Can I activate hers by using my Paypal account?
2) Will you charge my account $5?

Thank you

Hey @jouo,

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.

In order to activate the GitHub Student Pack, we require you to either make a minimum $5 Paypal payment or add a valid Credit/Debit Card to prevent abuse and fraud on our platform.

If you’re still having questions you can reach out to our amazing support team who will be more than happy to assist you with your billing query! :)

Hope that helps!

Regards,
Alex
