Billing varies among DigitalOcean products and features. Many are free or included in the price of other services. Our pricing page is a comprehensive pricing reference. Additionally, the overview page of every product and feature lists its billing details.
We invoice and charge your credit card on the 1st day of each month for the previous month’s usage. Time zone differences can cause some minor variation in invoice date and time. DigitalOcean bills in USD. To keep our pricing stable and consistent, rather than fluctuating with exchange rates, we do not bill in local currency. Similarly, we do not invoice in local currency. All invoices are in USD.
