We have simplified pricing for DigitalOcean Kubernetes and some Managed Databases for better accuracy and predictibility.
The prices of Droplets, Snapshots, Load Balancers, Reserved IPs, and Custom Images have increased.
There is no change to pricing for Spaces, backups, volumes, DigitalOcean Container Registry, or App Platform. There are also no changes to inbound data transfer or bandwidth pricing.
This is our first major price change in 10 years, and we believe the new model better fits our understanding of our customers and the expanded breadth of our offerings. For a more detailed breakdown of the changes, see our blog post on our new pricing.
We now support adding Google Pay as a stored payment method for Chromium-based browsers (Chrome, Brave, Microsoft Edge).

Fixed a bug with DigitalOcean Load Balancers that prevented outbound data transfer from Droplets from being added to bandwidth usage totals. Any inconsistencies will be updated on the April invoice.
Unassigned floating IP charges will now appear on invoices. The first charge will appear on July 2020 invoices for all floating IPs that were not assigned to Droplets during the month of June.
Users can now specify the payment method and amount when making payments on the billing page.
Bandwidth billing for Managed Databases, originally slated to begin in January 2020, has been postponed to 2021. Egress bandwidth for Managed Databases clusters will continue to be waived until then.
DigitalOcean now supports 3-D Secure (3DS) second-factor payment authentication, allowing us to accept payment from banks that require it.

Previously, invoices were sent only when the outstanding balance exceeded the threshold for automatic payments.
DOKS customers will now be able to see the cost of their Kubernetes nodes and load balancers aggregated by cluster name within a Kubernetes clusters group on their invoice. Volumes and volume snapshots used in a DOKS cluster are not yet included in the cluster aggregation.
Users with credits will automatically receive an email notification when account usage exceeds their promo code credit and any prepay balance.
Monthly billing emails now include a PDF invoice attachment.
The first version of monthly billing emails with attached PDF invoices was released to a small group of beta customers.

The changes to Droplet bandwidth billing announced on April 24 were put into effect.
Spaces will send billing data for active users within 2 hours of usage, down from a 4-5 day processing time. Previously, some users who were not billed for overages because of the processing delay may see their bill go up based on their actual usage.
Changes to Droplet Bandwidth Billing announced. The new billing plan goes into effect June 1. Charges for June, if any, will appear on the July 1 bill. Customers can view usage and billing information on their billing page.
Debit cards from any country can be used for payment once a temporary pre-authorization charge of $1 is successful.
Spaces users no longer need to cancel their Spaces subscription via the Spaces UI when they want to stop using Spaces. Now, any time a Spaces user destroys their last Space, their pro-rated $5/month billing (if not in the free trial period) stops. Overage charges still apply if they were incurred before deletion of the last Space.
