Why does my credit show $4.16 and -6 days when I have $40.47 deposited?

I’m trying to avoid my droplets being disabled. My account at the top right corner shows a credit of $4.16 and -6 days… but I have $40.47 in remaining credits according to the Billing page. Am I doing something wrong? How do I keep my droplets from deactivating?

Hi @LucasSnorkler,

The top right corner shows the current usage you have for this month. It’s different than your credit in the Billing Page.

Basically, what it does is state the costs of running your products for this month as of this moment. DigitalOcean billing cycles are monthly. Your account balance accrues over the course of the calendar month based on the cost of the resources you use. DigitalOcean is also required by law to apply taxes for certain countries.
