To provide free Oracle Cloud accounts to our valued customers, we need to ensure that you are who you say you are. We use your contact information and credit/debit card information for account setup and identity verification. Oracle may periodically check the validity of your card, resulting in a temporary “authorization” hold. These holds are removed by your bank, typically within three to five days, and do not result in actual charges to your account.
We accept credit cards and debit cards that function like credit cards. We do not accept debit cards with a PIN or virtual, single-use, or prepaid cards.
* Free Tier is currently available in all regions where commercial Oracle Cloud Infrastructure service is available. See the data regions page for detailed service availability. The US$300 free credit is available in select countries and valid for up to 30 days. Oracle Cloud credits are consumed at discounted rates during the 30-day promotional period. The capacity limits listed under each service are only estimates and reflect the maximum capacity you can get if you consume your entire credit on one service during the promotional period. The maximum capacity per service you get can be less if you consume multiple services. The list of services and capacity estimates are subject to change. Your credit balance is available to you in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.
