Why my digital ocean account is late to be verified?

  • Posted February 24, 2015

I dont know why it is so. Even i have provided them with a valid Credit Card. They deducted 1 Dollar for testing purposes. I think i should be enough if someone is providing the fee and valid email address. After all the individual having that email would be the owner of digital account account.


No. I havent found any promo code. Even my Account is not activated yet.

I would wager it has something to do with minimal billing with a credit card. Some payment processors require a minimum charge [i.e. Square = $1] They need to take the credit card to make their automated metering system work. Otherwise, they would be buried in overhead. Did you use a promo code to get your first two months free?

I’m not with Digital Ocean, maybe someone of authority will chime in.
