If you are wondering if you can use Bloom in your country, the answer depends on which features you are hoping to utilize.
While Bloom is available everywhere and allows you to enter information in any language, there are a few limitations when it comes to getting paid, and there are features that are available in every country. Besides the features mentioned in this article, Bloom is available everywhere.
If you use Bloom to invoice and need to accept credit card payments we require that you use either Stripe or Square. These payment processors are only available in certain countries, more on that later.
Here are some invoicing options available to everyone:
Any Bloom user anywhere can add their bank transfer info in Settings > Payments and instruct their clients to send a transfer.
This is another feature available anywhere. Add your instructions in Settings > Payments, and then enable the cash/check option when creating your invoice. Next, let's take a look at what's not available everywhere.

ACH payments are an option currently only available through Stripe, in the United States.
