Every time I see a receipt I get the urge to stuff it into my desk drawer. Typically the drawer gets so full it won’t close so you can imagine how I feel about dealing with months of receipts en masse.
Shoeboxed knows my pain and has come up with a much better way to deal with receipts.
Here’s how it works:
- Send your receipts to Shoeboxed – by post (freepost in US and Australia), mobile, email or direct upload
- Shoeboxed scans the receipt and human verifies each one so the data entry is done for you
- You receive organised data for expense reports that you can send to Xero
An hour of sorting through piles of paperwork to get your receipts into Xero is reduced to a second or two per receipt – so there’s no excuse for not sorting your receipts on the spot.
Your receipts will show up in Xero as accounts payable invoices. This integration will be further improved in the coming months with the ability to attach scanned receipts via the Xero API (this is something the API team are currently working on).
If you’re already a Shoeboxed and Xero customer you might have been using the file export/import method available in Shoeboxed. If so, you’ll now see a new option in the Shoeboxed export menu which allows you to automatically send your receipts to Xero – no need to export files!
