Once the monthly invoice has been generated, the discount offered by your package is deducted from the invoiced amount and credited to the hosting credit.

Please note that this amount cannot be encashed or used as hosting credit with any of our infrastructure partners (i.e. DigitalOcean, Vultr, Linode, Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services, and Kyup) directly.

Cloudways Startup Program credits will expire when all the credited amount is consumed through your selected plan.
