How to switch referral payout to paypal?
I've search in dashboard and anything but cannot find it.

  • If you please look into the FAQ section, the benefit is given only as DO credit, I suppose one cant get it as real cash :P

  • @hunky

    It is said on my notification that someone could get payout via paypal.

    A huge thanks from us at DigitalOcean for helping to spread the word!

    We've just processed your referral payout.

    If you've selected credit, you should see the credit posted to your account. If instead you selected Paypal, you should have a Paypal payment in your Paypal account.

    Happy coding,


    How is it?

  • I never received any referral payout, so I didn't know that, thanks for the information !!

    Better wait for a staff member to reply on the issue..

Referral payouts via Paypal have been depreciated. Users who had already selected this option continue to receive payouts in this way currently but it is no longer possible to select the PayPal option. This change occurred at the same time that referrals were increased from $10 to $25.
