How much does Sail cost?

Updated 11 months ago by Stuart Balcombe

Getting started with Sail is free (you don’t even need your credit card), the only time you will be charged is to process online payments. Here's a breakdown of when you will be charged and how much.

You can always use Sail to send unlimited invoices to an unlimited number of clients for free.


If you choose to accept online payments, Sail charges 1% of the transaction amount and passes on the fee charged by our payment processor Stripe for each transaction depending on the payment method used:

Credit/Debit Cards - 2.9% + 0.30¢

Bank Transfers (ACH) - 0.8% w/ $5 cap

We strongly recommend Bank Transfers (ACH) to reduce transaction fees on large payments.


Here are some examples to show how this works:

For a payment request of $1000 paid using a credit card.

Amount paid by your client: $1000
Sail transaction fee (1%): $10
Stripe processing fee (2.9% + 0.30¢): $29.30
Amount transferred to your bank account: $961.70
For a payment request of $1000 paid using a bank transfer (ACH).

Amount paid by your client: $1000
Sail transaction fee (1%): $10
Stripe processing fee (0.8% w/$5 cap): $5
Amount transferred to your bank account: $985.00
