DO Ideas 2

Offer free credit for larger pre-payment transactions

PayPal charges a $0.30 fixed fee (plus a percentage) for most payment transactions. I think DigitalOcean should offer their customers an incentive to pay larger amounts at a time, decreasing the amount they have to pay in fees to PayPal. A small credit ($2 for a payment of $100, or $5 for $250) would be applied to the customer's account, letting DO make more money, instead of paying fees. I expect this to also increase customer retention, and get customers to use more droplet time.

    they prefer monthly billings.

    but i agree with paypal transfers, should be custom so if i want i cant put all money in for a year and stop thinking about it.

    For example, a customer that made 1 $250 payment vs 25 $10 payments would help DigitalOcean save $7.20, $5.00 of which could be passed on to the customer.
