Adding cloud credit

Find out how to add credit or vouchers to your Public Cloud project

Last updated 4th February 2022

Objective

With the cloud credit option you can allocate a specific amount to your Public Cloud project which will serve as the default payment method for the billing of the project.
This means that cloud credit is debited first and any outstanding amount will be then be paid by other available payment methods. (Please consult the Public Cloud billing guides to learn more about this topic.)

This guide explains how to add credit on to your Public Cloud account using a voucher, or by generating a purchase order.

Requirements

Instructions

Log in to the OVHcloud Control Panel, go to the Public Cloud section, and select the Public Cloud project concerned. Open Credit and Vouchers in in the left-hand menu.

Note that credit added in this section cannot be transferred or refunded. It does not have monetary value, and any credit that has not been used within 13 months of purchase will be lost.

Adding credit

Click on the button Buy Public Cloud credit.
