Allow unique credit cards per droplet

For different project I may want to use different credit cards, ie if someone else is paying for my hosting. Currently, you can't assign billing of a droplet to a particular card.

    Hi Jonathan, Last week we released a few new features for Teams that might help. You can now be a part of up to 10 teams with each having its own invoices and billing options. We also added a new Billing role for teams that does not have permission to access Droplets, but can manage billing and payments. Here's a link to the announcement: https://www.digitalocean.com/company/blog/teams-work-better-together/ And to the tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-teams-on-digitalocean We hope this helps. Thanks for the great feedback!

    @Josh Viney: this allows us to let a team member change billing, but from what I understand, it still only allows one single billing method for all droplets, doesn't it?

    Having this would be great I have to create a new account since all finances have to be separate for different projects I'm on

    It would be great if we could create all of our droplet on the same account, and choose the paiement method for each droplet.

    +1: I am a teacher at a local college. Your environment looks great for supporting student independent study projects in networking, web design, data security, etc. Using your service some of the droplets I'll create will be for student projects and should be billed to either student CCs or a department CC while droplets for my research would be billed to my CC.

    This is my top most wanted feature. Please implement, so I can use a different credit card per droplet in my one account. Thanks!

    +1 I also suggested this feature after complaining about not being able to join another user's team with an existing DO account. The reason I wanted to is because they (my client) were being billed but I was doing the managing of their droplets.

    I emailed DO this morning about this exact thing! This would be extremely helpful to me and my business, because I end up spinning up droplets for a lot of my customers and I have to bill multiple people every month. I also run a few of my own businesses, and it would be great to be able to bill the business credit cards for each separate business, rather than paying for it on one card and having to shuffle money around.

    As per below comments, it would be great if I could use the card details of the business I built the site for for their droplet only, rather than me having to pay on my card and then bill them for it. This would be a great addition!

    Do you know if this will be probably implemented? If not, I should have to start by moving proyects to different accounts

    I have credit cards from a couple business that I manage machines for. It would be nice to use the appropriate card for the machine(s) per business instead of taking reimbursement some other way.

    I completely agree. I have a bunch of different servers and currently I have to send bills to each clients box appropriately. It's quite frustrating every month. It would be a great feature!

    This is an interesting features that would be more powerful if connected with "Group servers" : https://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/2712160-group-servers :)
