Finally, after two days, my ticket was answered:
It looks like there may have been a problem with the PayPal payment, or a problem with our system recognizing that payment which prevented the payment from activating your account. As a result, I have refunded your payment using PayPal’s automated system. It should clear as soon as it posts.

Ask support, we can’t tell you why.

I got the same error creating a Space

So what happened then? I’ve been waiting for more than a week, I also submitted a ticket but they didn’t fix it for me yet

  • The problem was related to the use of a similar PayPal for two different Digitalocean accounts. After refunding money, I charged my account with a new PayPal and the problem was resolved.
