Taking a look at payment categories in your account: outstanding, overdue, pending, and paid payments

Updated over a week ago

In your Bonsai dashboard, you'll find a Profit & Loss chart. This displays your payments within a time range of your choice, categorized by their payment status.

In this article, we'll take a look at each of the payment status categories and what they mean.

Outstanding payments

Invoices that have been sent to a client, have yet to be paid and are not yet past the invoice 'Due Date'. These will be considered 'outstanding' until they are settled.

Overdue payments

Invoices that have been sent to a client, have yet to be paid and are past the invoice 'Due Date'. These will be considered 'overdue' until they are settled.

Paid & Pending payments

These are from invoices that have been sent to a client, have been paid, but the funds are in the process of being transferred to you.

The 'pending' status usually appears for ACH Bank Transfer payments, which may take 7-10 business days to reach your account. You can identify ACH payments in your invoice list by the blue dot and 'pending' status.
