Bonfire sends payouts via PayPal. Requested payouts are sent 1-2 business days after your successful Campaign batch has ended. If you have Additional Contributions enabled, we’ll also include donations or tips you received. 

You can view and request payouts in your Account Dashboard. Navigate to the payouts section and select the “Available” tab:

If a single payout is over $10,000, your payout cannot be transferred to PayPal for security/risk measures. Please contact our support team to update the payout method to a check.

Are There Payout Fees?

Bonfire covers all the fees associated with your payouts. The only fee Bonfire will ever collect is an 8% processing fee on additional contributions. See Pricing and Fees for more information.

The payout amount displayed in your Dashboard on Bonfire will always equal the amount that shows up in your PayPal account. If there are multiple payouts available PayPal will combine them in the requested payout.

Do Payouts work differently for Non-Profit Organizations?

The payout process for verified 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organizations is identical. 

However, all of your processing fees are reduced from 8% to 3.5%. 

You can view and request payouts in your Account Dashboard. You will be able to see payouts from Campaigns created and owned by your organization as well as payouts from Campaigns who have chosen to fundraise for your organization. Learn more about Campaigns connected to Organizations.

For additional information for Nonprofits and Payouts, see Paying Taxes on Campaigns, Tax-Deductible Donations, and/or Supporter Contact Information.

If you would like to change the PayPal account on file, or have any other questions, reach out on our contact page. We're always happy to help.
