Frequently asked questions:

What is receipt parsing?

It is, in essence, reading and extracting information from a receipt. This information can include the name of the vendor's business, the total amount, the date of receipt, the total amount of tax paid, the item descriptions, and many more field types. AI can be used for such purposes because it helps not just extract, but also create structure within the extracted data.

What is the cost of Affinda's professional receipt extraction software?

It all depends on the integrations you choose and the volume of receipts you process each month. Our sales team can give you more information about this. Contact them and find out.

How can I trial the receipt parsing solution for free?

While there is a free receipt parser on our website, the functionalities it offers are far from the full range of features we offer. You can go for a free trial of our receipt parsing app. Sign up for a free trial here.

Can I review and make changes to the results of receipt parsing?

Of course! You get a Viewer tool with your pro receipt extraction package. Before you export your parsed receipts, you can go through the parsing results and confirm the data that AI extracted. Not only will you get better data, but you’ll train your AI receipt OCR to do better next time.

Does Affinda receipt extraction API integrate with other software? Which?

For the time being, you can integrate your receipt OCR with Zapier, Xero, and QuickBooks, or you can contact us and we can work with you to ensure our solution integrates with your favourite platform. We’re always working on more integration options, so stay tuned.

Can I parse receipts in languages other than English? Which ones?

Our enterprise-level API works with more than 13 languages. The free version, though, only works in English. If you’d like us to add other languages to our API, contact our sales team to discuss more.

What is the best receipt OCR software?

Affinda's receipt scanning software consistently performs with higher accuracy when compared with competitors.

Are my sensitive documents secure with you?

Security and privacy are our priorities. We stay on top of all the data protection regulations. All the data processed our receipt extractor and other tools is encrypted and stored securely. Discover more details.

Which file formats can Affinda’s receipt extraction software parse?

You can parse receipts that are in text file formats (PDF, DOC, DOCX, ODT) or image formats (JPG and PNG) for free. The pro version that offers API can also process XLS and XID.

Can I license Affinda's receipt OCR for my own platform?

We made this receipt OCR to be quick, smart, and flexible. It is most likely that we can make it work with your platform seamlessly. Contact us to discuss licensing details.

I have scans of my receipts. Can you extract data from that?

Yes. That's the beauty of it! Affinda’s AI engine VEGA has embedded Optical Character Recognition (OCR). That means it can read scanned images, understand them, and extract data. In other words, no more manual data extraction.

How many receipts can I upload at once?

You can upload receipts one at a time, or in bulk. There is no limit on the number of receipts that you upload. Our solution will simply process the receipts one at a time in a series using a first-in-first-out approach. Therefore, the last receipt to be uploaded will take a longer time to be processed.

Can you scan receipts into excel?

Yes. You can scan your receipts and upload your JPG or PNG files (also PDF, DOC, DOCX, or ODT) and export them into JSON, XML and XLS.

How to get total amount from receipt via OCR software?

Simply upload your receipts in any common image or text format (such as PDF, DOC, DOCX, ODT, PNG, or JPG). Once parsing is complete, you'll receive a CSV file with the extracted text fields, including the total amount, ready to be imported into your accounting software.
