Proposals

While we both offer templates to speed up your document creation process, Bonsai is clearly focused only on freelancers. With Better Proposals, you will find beautifully designed templates for your needs, no matter the size of your business.

We also know there's more to a successful sales document than design. That's why we offer custom branding and you can send all your documents from your own domain. And if you want to take it up a notch, you can integrate live chat to get instant client feedback. This not only saves you and your client time on sending emails back and forth, but also lets you make live changes to your docs. In addition to that, our Proposal AI analyzes your industry data to get you the highest conversion rates possible.

200+ free templates

No design skills required

Process, share, and store your proposals quicker, easier, and more securely than ever.
And the best part is, you won't need a team to make it perfect.

Pricing

At first glance, Bonsai is the more affordable option when it comes to pricing. While both of our plans start at $19/month, Bonsai lets you add extra users for $9/month/user. While that is $10 less than what you'd pay with us, our platform is more robust and offers more features. By starting with Better Proposals, you won't have to change platforms when your business starts growing. Our 40+ integrations, advanced analytics, and team management features make sure of that.

Payment integrations

Better Proposals integrates with PayPal, Stripe, and GoCardless, which lets you get paid from almost anywhere in the world. Bonsai, on the other hand, doesn't offer payment integrations, meaning you'll have to use a separate platform to collect payments.
