Is there a receipt scanner for regular QuickBooks?

Hi Rehab,


I'm happy to inform you that we have a free Receipt Scanner in QuickBooks Online (QBO).


All you have to do is download our QBO Mobile App in the App Store and Google Play. Then, it'll turn your phone’s camera into an instant receipt scanner.


Simply snap a photo of a receipt and QBO will attach it to the expense in your books. Plus, the scanned receipt is saved as a digital file for documentation at tax time.


Check out this link to learn more on how it works:


There are also third-party applications in the App Center that offer similar scanning services.


Here's how to find them:

  1. Click Apps on the left pane.
  2. Under the Find Apps tab, enter a keyword in the search box.
  3. Check out the details of the apps.

That should help you easily scan your receipts. If you have follow-up questions, feel free to let me know. I'll be here and ready to help anytime. Have a great weekend!

We use the Receipt Snap in OBO, but it will not capture the entire receipt if it is extremely long.  Is there a solution for this?

Thanks for your interest about the Receipts feature in QuickBooks Online, @Abolin1,


QuickBooks Online uses the scanned data from capture receipts to match with the expenses in QuickBooks Online. This means, that the information should be visible and should fit the screen the moment you take a photo of them. See this:


For super long receipts, you can capture portions of it then combine it in a single file before uploading it manually. Another workaround if you want to use the capture option is cutting and arranging them to fit the frame.


Once done, you can review and update any missing or incorrectly mapped fields directly in the For Review section. Here's how:


  1. On your Dashboard, proceed to the Banking menu.
  2. Select the Receipts tab and locate the receipts to delete.
  3. Click the drop-down arrow then pick Review.
  4. Choose Edit receipt details then manually correct the information.
  5. Hit Save and close when done.

   Feel free to get back to me if there's anything else you want to know or need with QuickBooks. I'll be more than happy to help you anytime. Have a nice day!
