Bonsai currently offers three payment options that are integrated directly with your invoices to make sure you're getting paid as quickly as possible! Visit your Payment Settings Page by clicking here to manage your preferred payment methods 💰

Bonsai Payments

Bonsai Payments is out newest addition to our payments suite. It's Bonsai's internal platform built to allow us more control and flexibility in our payment feature developments!

We approached this with our users in mind, taking into account our most common payments requests.

Our earliest new feature exclusive to Bonsai Payments is Instant Payouts where qualifying users can receive their money in ~1 hour after payment for a small fee 💸

👉 Note: Bonsai Payments is only available to users in the US, Canada, UK and Australia. Instant Payouts is currently only available for US users.


You can also accept Credit Card and ACH payments through a direct Stripe integration if you prefer. This option works just like Bonsai Payments, but with no possibility of receiving Instant Payouts.

👉 Note: Stripe payments can be used in any country that Stripe is available except India at the moment.


As a third option, you can also have PayPal integrated directly in your invoice so you can be paid through PayPal directly!

👉 Note: PayPal's integration sometimes experiences problems that are outside of our control. We will do our best to troubleshoot any issues that arise, but typically they are in the hands of PayPal to remedy.


Pricing of each option varies both by payment method and based on your country. Keep good evidence of all payments in preparation for self-employment taxes!
