Why is there a need for a person to enter credit card information that I am inviting to my project?

I am trying to invite a team member to my project, but it is asking the team member for credit card info. This seems quite unnecessary, cumbersome, and quite frankly annoying, especially if I am inviting them to the my project! Is there a way I can invite them without that info? Otherwise, I need to provide my admin creds, which is a huge security risk for me!!

Hello, @sumansampath

Can you please confirm which role you’ve selected for them? Team members can have one of three roles: owner, biller, or member. Roles determine a user’s level of access to a team’s shared resources, billing information, and settings.

You can double-check our docs on Teams and the roles especially:


  • Role is member. But when the member signs up they are not able to access the droplets unless they enter their credit card or PayPal info and make a transaction
