Hello, i just added 5$ in my account and i received this message Your account is under review and you will shortly receive an email from us with any next steps. How long it takes? Thanks.

  • same state,where can query my account is avaiable?

  • Also facing this issue. Paid into account on Oct 5th. Opened a support ticket on the 12th, got inconclusive answer, then another response to my further probing that made it seem as though multiple people were handling my ticket but not reading the previous messages. Still no resolution.

  • I see that this is recurring issue for many.

    I wanted to test this out to see whether I should switch some workloads here but after reading this thread, I must say that my expectations from this service have dropped dramatically and my company will probably not be switching over any workloads.

    I've just created and account and added some balance using paypal. The account is stuck on "under review" and I can't seem to be able to do anything. Based on the comments here, it seems that the review process may take more than a week (WHAT?!??!). Given platforms like AWS, Azure and whatever IBM has, How is this acceptable at this day and age?

    What needs to happen so that an official Digital Ocean response is posted here?

  • Same problem !!! 7 days waiting and nothing !!!

    Paid with Paypal at 20-12, corfimed at 20-12 by Digital Ocean... And surprise me... Nooothinngggg !!!!

    digital ocean has the worst system I've ever seen

  • I just paid $ 5 and my account is "under supervision" ...
    The DIGITAL OCEAN service is very poor.

It's weird, and I've paid
I hate waiting

same as me, how long will i get reviewed?

i ever create do before, and there is no review like this.

Same here... some months ago there is no review like this :(

Well, in my case this occur when I create a new digital ocean account and add R$ 10,00 via PAYPAL.

Today is 08/10/2017 (sunday) weekend day, I pay R$ 10,00 at 09:00 AM, lets see what time it will be released....

  • Well... today (12:12 AM) I receive a message with the next steps, they redirect me to an website page to give my UserName, Name, Telephone, ** Location** and the type of traffic that my server will be get.

    When I send the form I receive the following e-mail: Thanks for taking the time to fill out the form. Our team manually reviews these answers and will get back to you shortly!

    *MANUALLY REVIEWS *....It was as I imagined, this will take time :/

    • Today is 10/10/2017 at 12:53 I receive the following e-mail from digital ocean: Thank you for relaying this information to us. With the details you have provided, we've gone ahead and removed the hold from your account..

      Now I can create my droplet.

Same here lets see how long it takes. I have my reservations about AWS but they at least don't treat me like a criminal.

  • Its been 10 days and still no email yet, :| everything is fine before I give the money seems like a scam here...

Omg, money gone and account under review. Worst company.

24 more hours have passed and I have not received email verification yet

It's been 8 days (!!) since I've payed and I still haven't got an email.
This is absolutely unacceptable..

Same here today. Seems like a global issue and will need to move legally if the situation doesn't change.

Me too --
WTF so waste my time -

I can't imagine when I deposit My money for servers plan for my team

Well, it says "minutes", it's been an hour, I hope they don't mean thousands of minutes

Same thing happening to me...

Same problem, it's already a month since I've paid it using PayPal

This is disgrace, I payed money for droplet but have "We're reviewing your account", and support only say "I completely understand", "We'll get back to you about your account status shortly", "In order to investigate further on your issue, I will be moving this ticket to our Trust and Safety Department" ... what is this?!?!?!? For what I pay?!?!?!?!?!

saua mengalami masalah yang sama, saya sudah deposit usd $5 di 2 akun yang berbeda, namun semua sama aja .
