Requirements

The receipt processor component works best with sales receipts, those commonly used by restaurants, gas stations, and retailers, among others. Both print and handwritten text can be detected.

Only English receipts from the United States are currently supported.

In order to get the best results, provide one clear photo or scan per receipt.

  • The image format must be JPEG, PNG, or PDF.
