Prepay for use on Google Cloud
One of the fears everyone has is that we'll start learning on GCP and we'll get a bill for $700,000 at home when a bad line of code spawns up 2million nodes on earth and mars.
I'd like to buy $500 increments in Google Cloud Credits. Then when i hit that limit, you cut me off. This allows to learn safely.
Interesting idea… we’ll share it with the billing team.

I notice that Google Cloud Payment FAQ says that I can make a manual payment, and can make it for larger than current charges owed. Is there a limit on such in-advance payment? The reason I ask is we have fiscal-year-attached money and would like to pre-pay for some Cloud AI use.

agree. Just been hit with an unexpected 141usd
I fully support prepaid credit along with acceptance of prepaid Mastercard/Visa cards. No risk for Google and no risk for end users.
