What is Oracle Cloud?
Oracle Cloud is a cloud platform and service offered by Oracle Corporation. It provides a suite of cloud-based infrastructure, platforms, and software services to help you build, deploy, and manage applications and data in a scalable and secure environment.
So if you want to host a website then you can do this easily using Oracle Cloud.
If you want some cloud hosting for free or paid then Oracle is a good option. It’s a good web hosting service where you can host your websites or applications on a cloud computing infrastructure, instead of hosting on a physical server.
How to fix Oracle Cloud sign up error processing transaction
Fix 1: Different payment card
The first thing to do is try using a different payment card, when signing up to Oracle Cloud you will need to use either a credit card or debit card for the payment.
If you are not using a credit card or debit card then this could be the reason why you are unable to sign up, and receiving the annoying processing transaction error message, even after it appears that the sign up was successful.
Fix 2: Different email address
Oracle can be fussy about email addresses so if you are trying to sign up with an email address that does not contain your name, or perhaps sounds a bit spammy that the bot would detect as a spam email then this is going to cause problems.
So try signing up with a different email address, not containing any special characters, numbers, etc just use a simple Gmail email address, if possible has your name within.
Fix 3: Personal details
Make sure your personal details match the address and name on the payment card that you are using. So dig out an invoice for the bank card that you are trying to pay with, and ensure you are matching the name and address with the personal details that you have filled out on Oracle.
Fix 4: Different web browser
It could easily be an issue with the current web browser that you are using, so try using a different web browser on your computer. If you do not have one then you will need to install one, also when you do use the different browser open the Oracle website in private or incognito mode.
Fix 5: Contact support
If none of the above methods have helped fix not being able to sign up for an Oracle account due to the annoying processing transaction error. Then the next thing to try is reaching out to the Oracle support, this can be annoying as you might need to wait a while to get into touch with a member of staff, so I hope one of the above methods did help.
So as good as Oracle Cloud can be it can be a nightmare to try and sign up for the services making Oracle annoying to start with. But once you have managed to get your account to register, by using the above methods Oracle Cloud is great and has some nice free options.
