What are eReceipts?
eReceipts are full digital replacements of their paper equivalents for purchases. This means you can ignore paper receipts entirely, no typing, and no SmartScanning required.
An eReceipt will be created for Expensify Card and other card program purchases of any amount. eReceipts will be created for purchases of any amount.
- eReceipts are only provided for automatically imported transactions that are in US Dollars.
- These can be imported directly from your bank account, but will not import for a CSV/OFX imported file of bank transactions.
- We will not generate an eReceipt for lodging expenses.
- Many banks do not provide complete or accurate category information, so we might at times misidentify merchants and erroneously generate an invalid eReceipt for hotel purchases. Similarly, you are free to re-categorize expenses, possibly causing us to generate an invalid eReceipt for a purchase made at a hotel. In either case, our Expensify eReceipt Guarantee does not cover purchases of lodging at hotels and motels.
- An eReceipt will be generated for Expensify card purchases of any amount in the following categories: Airlines, Commuter expenses, Gas, Groceries, Mail, Meals, Car rental, Taxis, and Utilities.
