Digital ocean account payment doubt

when I tried creating a account in digitalocean as mentioned in the course using the link provided , my credit card was charged almost 1800 rupees when it was mentioned in the course video that the charge will range within 500 . I’m confused if I’m supposed to pay for it or not .

Hi @sanjhanaa222 ,

Also regarding the amount that you have paid. If you have used a link mentioned in Bolt IoT and ML Training, you will get certain free credits to proceed with your projects. You will have to verify a payment method to verify your account and get trial credits. The amount that you have paid for verification will be refunded back to your credit card.

In case you have paid via Paypal, you won’t get any refund of the amount that you have paid. As per t&c of Digital Ocean, the amount that you have paid via Paypal will not be refunded but will be adjusted in future bills. You can use that amount in future bills.

Hi @sanjhanaa222,

Can you please let us know if your issue is resolved or not?
