Hi, i from Venezuela and i get $50 coupon from Github Student pack.

My problem is, in Venezuela we haven't access to other concurrency, so i can't verify my account if i haven't dollars.

if not exists other way to verify my account.

Sorry for my english.

Please provide any other option to verify account with GitHub Student Pack, even if we have this pack we are not able to use it because of credit card no.
Answer is 2 years old, so is there any updates on this? Do we have any other option?

To have an account at DigitalOcean, you would have to have either a valid Credit Card or a PayPal account you could use. Currently, DigitalOcean doesn't support the use of any other payment methods. Without having one of those, you sadly wouldn't be able to fully activate the account. I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause you.

  • But in order to perform a PayPal payment, you need a credit card connected to your PayPal account, because there is no option in the PayPal form to use the money already stored in your PayPal account. There's only CC options in the PayPal form...

same problem here from the uk, i want another account for a client, does not accept debit cards, no paypal option on sign up, over 24 hours, no reply from support.... things have gone downhill.
A few hours more and I advise the client to go to upcloud.
