You might have noticed a few changes to the receipt capture in your Abacus iOS app today. We know that you don’t always get a chance to capture your receipt as a transaction is happening and can sometimes rack up a few expenses during the day. Now it’s easier to upload them all in one shot when you have a free moment.Back to Blog
iOS Receipt CaptureThe new receipt capture allows you to do a few awesome things that you couldn’t do before:
- Add multiple receipts at a time: the new camera in Abacus lets you take continuous pictures to add receipts to your receipt bin. Just close the camera by tapping ‘Done’ in the bottom right.
- Add receipts offline: No internet service, no problem. Just take pictures of the receipts like normal, and when your service returns we’ll automatically upload them to your Abacus account. Great for expensing from the plane!
- Edits and Notes: Quickly scroll through your receipt bin at the top of the camera and click a receipt to edit or add an expense note.

If you attach your credit card to Abacus, we match your receipts to the transactions in the feed, add your receipt note and can auto-categorize your expense. Once it’s ready to go, we’ll add it to your Suggested Expenses list and let you know. Then you can quickly go through your list of expenses by clicking “Quick Expense.” The new receipt capture flow helps you add receipts in bulk, which helps heavy expensers especially speed up submission time.
