Alternative to credit card for USING GCP
Hey I'm a student and relatively new to cloud and as a student I CAN NOT afford a credit card and it's not easy to get credit card in my country when you are still a student.
I understand GCP can't accept debit cards due to VBV or requiring OTP for payment which conflicts with auto pay but that should not be the reason to kick out user as a whole from the service if they can't verify with a credit card?
What if GCP instead allowed user to verify using debit cards and let the user buy a subscription pack instead ?
Like the user creates a compute engine then it asks user to buy the subscription , the user can also pay in advance for a month where user manually pay the amount and not auto pay? If user didn't pay amount for next month then ofc there account will get disabled or whatever but it would be really nice and appreciated if there's another alternative to the credit card thingy.
I used GCP with free tier for a month and really loved it, it's exactly what I was looking for, but my account got terminated because I didn't verified my account with credit card.
(I'm sorry if Its already been posted or if I posted it at wrong thread)
