    TIP: Availability & Actual Charge

    Check the Availability status in the order summary.

    • When it shows as Instantly available, there's an up-and-running configuration available to use. After the purchase is complete, the service will be assigned immediately to your account and will be ready for use.
    • If you see it as As soon as possible, the MacStadium team will need to set up your Orka Small Teams configuration. You will be charged only after the service is activated.


    Note the Total bill. MacStadium bills your credit card on the 1st day of the month. If you are not completing your Orka Small Teams purchase on the 1st day of the month, you will see a pro-rated charge right under the Total.

    TIP: No Create Cloud button?

    If you don't see a Create Cloud button, you haven't configured your billing information (see Step 2). You can click Enable Billing and add a new credit or debit card without leaving the current screen,

After the purchase is complete, you will land on the Manage Orka page.

How to upgrade your configuration

Orka Small Teams bundles are not customizable.
