Using camera to input receipts

Since the database can now be exported, and additional feature which would be useful would be to be able to attach an image(s) to a transaction, and to export this as well. This may be getting beyond the initial scope of the project, but it would be nice to be able to create an electronic image of the receipt at the time the transaction is done.

This could also be used for security purposes, as one could take a picture of the serial numbers of a high ticket item.

Jim, thanks for the idea. We've logged this to our tracker for prioritization. Your use case describing high ticket items is an interesting one to consider. This could help EEBA serve as a documentation system for insurance purposes, I assume.

I would love to have this feature as part of the notes as well. I keep receipts around... just in case. This would let me throw away the receipts.

@tleish, and all on this thread, in thinking about this...one of the things that would need to be overcome for this is that images can take up a lot of space.

So, while we can store a good amount of transaction data for relatively low cost, once we get into storing images, storage becomes an issue. Images could, by default, be 1 - 3 MB apiece from your camera phone at the basic resolution. For apps storing receipts on your phone, that's fine. But for EEBA, which you would expect would sync everything back to the server (otherwise, what's the point, right?--and especially for your documentation case) storage could start to become prohibitive.

Any thoughts about this?

The solution to storing images is rather simple albeit counter intuitive: Good budget should not store the images.

Instead, use an external service to store the images. I see two ways to do this:
(1) Many apps like using dropbox, or Google drove to store these images (using the personal storage of the good budget user).
(2) I use Fleetio, and was intrigued with the range of pictures, documents, and receipt scans they support (within the context of managing cars). They use a service called filepicker, which has been renamed filestack. Check them out at filestack.com.

As to how you can financially support this:
This could be a paid feature or a paid add-on to either the free or the paid subscriptions. Personally, I'm a free user, and the benefits you offer under the subscription aren't worth it to me. However, I have been looking for something to track receipts and I would pay for a service that did that, allowing me to not only budget, but budget and declutter my desk and my wallet (where I stuff receipts).

I thought about writing an app that enters transactions and saves a copy of the receipt in an external service, but you don't have an api, so that was a dead end. Other receipt scanning apps focus on just scanning, making out cumbersome to both scan and enter transactions in good budget. The scanning and transaction entry need to be in the same screen.

I disagree on using a different system. That makes things difficult to cross reference. I am a paid user. This isn't a foreign idea and is done by many apps

Hi Tony and Jacob, 

Thank you both for the suggestions! We still do not have anything to announce with this feature. But, we will definitely keep your suggestions in mind if we do decide to work on this. 

Thanks again!

@Tony Kim It is not difficult to cross reference. Drive, Dropbox and likes have an API so you wouldn't have to upload the photos yourself, Goodbudget could do it. Many apps already do this.

Oh I agree. I thought you were referring to doing it outside the app. I agree that this should be implemented and is the only thing I am unhappy with, with Good budget

@Tony Kim, as @jbtibor said, the goodbudget app would use APIs of whatever service they choose. My reason for mentioning Fleetio was that I was impressed with how seamlessly they had integrated receipt scanning, and document storage. I was surprised that they would handle all of these documents/photos (and the associated storage), so I looked to see if they were doing that themselves or were using some external service. That's how I found out about filestack. It's integrated as part of the app, but takes care of all the file handling (including getting it from a service like dropbox, google drive, etc, or uploading, or taking a picture or whatever, and then filestack provides the CDN to store/deliver the files for a seamless experience in the app.)

@cmchien, you have some good points. I'm sure you've already thought of some possible solutions, but here are some of my thoughts on this.

Compression, compression, compression
A phone camera might have a photo upload a photo JPEG at say 2000x1500, 300dpi and 1.7MB. If you resize the photo to say 1000x750, 72dpi (the photo might be a small store receipt, or a 8/5x11 invoice so you don't want to shrink it too much) and save the image as a 2 color PNG (black and white not grayscale, like a facsimile) then you would have effectively taken the 3MB image down to 39k, but the user can still read the information. I don't want to store high resolution photos of my kids, just a record of some of the detail associated with this purchase.

Original Photo (2000x1500, 1.7MB)


Compressed Photo (1000x750, 2 color, 39k)


Storage Restrictions
Place storage restrictions, just like webmail services place restrictions on the amount of email and attachments I can keep in my inbox. If a user starts to run out of space, they either have to clean up some of their old receipts or stop uploading them. A single image management page would be useful in this scenario. Download and save a copy of my images, then select and batch delete receipts, etc.

Up-sell
The more a customer pays, the more storage space they get to store their receipts. A motivation for many customers to upgrade their accounts.

I think compression and 2 tone images are a great idea to minimize storage requirements. As time goes by, though, storage demands would only increase no matter how small you make the files. What if EEBA only held on to the images for 90 days and then deleted them? While that may seem like it defeats the purpose of a cloud based registrar, please hear me out. EEBA could automatically generate a monthly statement that includes a PDF containing all reciepts for that period and send it to users via email. This gives users the convenience of cloud based day to day records and also helps then keep track of records long term without putting too much demand on EBBA's servers. Users still have cloud based access to long term records of receipts by going back through their email.

Thoughts?

Another option would be to use dropbox, you could have the user input their dropbox account information or create a new dropbox account. That would give each user 2gigs right off the bat which would store a lot of photos.

Another idea is to hook up to the shoeboxed api, that would allow the user to send the image to a (free) shoeboxed account and allow you to get the data back. Image is stored in shoeboxed, which already has systems in place for IRS use.

@jeff.giesbrecht, Shoeboxed looks like an interesting service, almost exactly what you'd be trying to do with this feature. However, only their paid plans support uploading from mobile or OCR/auto-data-entry. Thanks for the suggestion though.

But their free service allows you to upload via email or scanned service, I believe their free service also allows you to access the account via API which is what your app would be doing. I'd recommend checking out the API in further detail to see what you are allowed to do with the free account.

I read through Shoeboxed's API documentation and I believe only the paid plans work with uploading via email. While their free service allows you to upload via the website, you have to manually enter the receipt information. Their paid service allows you to send the image via email and they'll do the data entry for you. The API is read-only, useful for accessing your Shoeboxed data from another service.

Shoeboxed is perfect for this and I have been able to upload my receipts via their app as well as email using a free account. You may want to setup a test free DIY account and try it yourself.

Hi,

I really hope this feature can be included. I am currently searching for a good expense/budget/receipt app and I feel EEBA is the closest one I have tried.

However, the one thing I think is missing from EEBA is this feature. In reality, users may not be able to input details of an expense right away. By taking image of the receipt simultaneously as you record expenses, it acts as a place holder for me to input details at a later/more convenient time without having to worry about remembering the details. Also, it serves as a tracking tool for me because I would like to revisit certain details that are depicted on the receipt that's not captured within the data fields.

Currently, I am using another app for taking pictures of my receipts. If EEBA can include this feature, I am very happy to use this one app that can do it all.

Regards,

Amy

Hi MeanWoman,

Thanks for the feedback! Being able to take photos of receipts, checks, etc. would be a useful feature and it's definitely something that we're considering, though we're still not sure how to handle the space issue. If you have any further thoughts on this, let us know!

Thanks for your response.

There's several free apps out there that allows this function but none of them are good in terms of integrating with the expense/budget aspect. There's one that is currently in beta that seems promising with the ability to take photos of the receipt and then generate report. I'm not sure how they work around the space issue in terms of the pictures but it has been done on several occasions.

If EEBA can figure this out, I'm sure it will increase downloads and drive up subscriptions.

I wouldn't mind connecting my dropbox account to store the receipts if that is the only viable/free way. Receipts need not to be on the EEBA server but probably to a cloud server so it can be redirected with a link.

So there have been a few suggestions for storing photos, here is another one, how about tying into G+?

Also from a company point of view allowing me to purchase a pro app that comes with say 1 gig of storage space and then reduce the image down to 2 or 3 colors as has been suggested would make a huge difference, In that case 1 gig of store space isn't required.

With disk space so cheap theses days it seems silly to not have this feature implemented and then the receipt images stored on a server somewhere. The software could be set to store x number of images or x weeks of images, give the user an option.

How about a service like flickr, picasa from google, or snapfish?

When we set up our EEBA app and account we also input our username/id. with a push of a button from the "add transaction" screen in EEBA we take a picture which is uploaded to the free photo storing account and then a link appears in the note of the transaction. On the photo storing account there should be away to put the photo in an album that we can call receipts or eeba transactions or something...

Does the api from any of these free photo storing site allow for this?

Thanks Jeff and thinkpositive for your feedback. Though we may not always respond, we do read each post and value your input.

Out-sourcing the image hosting would solve the space problem, but brings its own set of issues (users having to setup separate accounts, keeping up with multiple api's, etc.) We'll definitely keep these suggestions in mind going forward, however. Thanks!

It wouldn't be mandatory for all users to set up image hosting accounts so I wouldn't think about it as a problem. For those who want to store images this would be the price to pay, however I'd say many of those users will already have Dropbox, Picasa, Amazon S3, Skydrive, Google Docs or other accounts.
Google Docs does OCR for free but they are not good with receipts.

Or you could partner with expensemagic.com, those guys are doing a great job.

Hi jbtibor,

Thanks for the feedback. It's helpful to know that you wouldn't mind going through the work of linking EEBA with a 3rd party service. I'm not sure if that would be best option for us going foward, but it's certainly helpful for us to hear your perspective, thanks!

Just my $0.02.. I don't think hooking into a 3rd party service is a very good idea. It clutters the simplicity of EEBA and would be a net negative.

The only thing I can think of is a modest fee for that specific capability to cover those storage costs. From a development / architecture standpoint, you could store them on slower disk, which would be cheaper disk. Compressed like tleish shows above, even at 100KB each would allow 10 million images per terabyte. If the development is an issue, you can streamline that on the backend by having the full image transfer to the server and perform backend processing on it.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the thoughtful feedback. I think you're right that tying into a 3rd party service would make things more complicated, which in general is something we obviously try to avoid.

We'll keep your comments in mind as we think about this going forward. Thanks!

If this app could be used to capture pictures of receipts and split the transaction into a "sales tax" category reportable/acceptable to IRS during tax time, that would be the bomb. I've heard of people who saved receipts and got better tax refunds but frankly that's too much work for me. However, since I'm budgeting and entering transactions in EEBA anyway, capturing a photo and splitting out the tax would not be a huge deal. EEBA could total up the "sales tax" and provide the report come tax time.

That feature would fit nicely with this app and be a selling feature that might attract an entirely new market segment independent of the folks who use it for budgeting alone.

I'm an iPhone user. For compression, possibly photos could be converted to .pdf like CamScanner does to reduce file size.

As far as storage implementation, perhaps the DropBox account would work. File names would be some combination of date, payee, etc.

Hi Mark,

Let me respond to both your comments at the same time. You bring up a lot of good ideas! There's definitely a market for business related expense tracking, and as other have noted, trying into a 3rd party service like dropbox or the like would solve the storage space issue.

We don't have anything to announce yet regarding this topic, but all the feedback in this thread definitely helps us think about the issue, so thanks for your contributions.

Thanks to everyone for the feedback they've given in this thread so far. We've heard many technical ideas on how to implement the service, which has been great, but moving forward we'd love to hear more about how you would use the service and why. Is it to:

Input transactions faster?

Have a photo record of receipts for tax purposes?

Something else?

Letting us know more about how you would use the service, and what you would expect from it, helps us decide how it might fit into EEBA.

For me it would be for faster input. For receipts with less than 10 entries I don't mind typing but 10-30 entries are really time consuming.

Hi jbtibor,

Thanks for the feedback. So for some receipts, you enter each item as a separate transaction? I can see how taking a picture would save a lot of time!

Could you let me know more about why you record each entry on a receipt as a separate transaction? If it's to select a different Envelope for each entry, you could try splitting the transaction among different Envelopes. This might speed things up for you as you wouldn't need to enter the payee information over and over again.

We have lots of receipts what contain different categories (envelopes). I wouldn't bother with scanning and OCR only to get the total.
I.e. our weekly shopping can have groceries, cleaning stuff, small electric stuff (i.e.bulbs, batteries), car stuff, gardening and other items all on one receipt.
Same if we visit a department store (something like K-Mart in USA) we get a single receipt for all very different stuff we buy there.
Ideally I'd record each transaction individually but sometimes I just group similar items into one transaction in MS Money due to lack of time.

Payee might be different too but that's not an issue because I only have to type the first couple of characters and it gets autofilled in MS Money, and I can select from list in EEBA (though autofill would be faster and more convenient).

Hi jbtibor,

Thanks for fleshing that out for me. That helps us understand why a camera option would be useful for you.

If you have receipts that contain different categories/Envelopes, generally I would recommend recording that as a split transaction. You can split a transaction into as many Envelopes as you like.

Recording the transaction this way also gives you a transaction total that matches what's on your bank's records, letting you import properly. (You mentioned a concern with import matching on a separate thread)

I can see how recording each item you purchase as a separate transaction would give a greater sense of detail though.

If you record transactions on the web, it will auto-fill for you. If you record transaction via your phone, the suggested list in the drop down will update itself as you type.

It would be nice to be able to take a photo of the receipt for the transaction as we are entering it. I currently use EasyMoney, which has this feature. Here are some example use cases:

- if I ever have a question on what all was covered in the transaction (or can't remember how or why I spent X amount of dollars on something), I can simply touch the transaction and load up the receipt photo attached to it

- compare prices with a past transaction for an individual item

- input individual expenses as deductibles when doing taxes

- keeping a photo library is way more convenient than hanging onto every paper receipt. Plus, if you need to return an item, you can have them scan the barcode on the photo, or type in the barcode numbers manually

- the allure of keeping an entire history of all your receipts without the clutter and hassle is too tempting to avoid when searching for a budget app

Those are some of the examples I can think of; I'm sure others could find more. :)

They OCR the _content_ of the receipt, so you'd have all entries searchable instead of a picture, i.e. you could search for beer if you wanted to know what you paid for beer last month instead of looking through couple of images. They promised a generic export format like csv or ofx so that importing into financial software will be easier eventually.
They don't care if it's business expense or personal expense, can be used for groceries too. And they haven't failed to OCR anything yet, probably there's human error correction when automatic OCR fails.

This is a great idea for a future update idea. I've seen other budget/finance programs actually doing this, however I prefer EEBA overall so I've opted for this service over the competition. However this would really help you to offset a significant advantage that competitors still have on you at this point.

Many of the posts on this topic have suggested tying in to a 3rd party service for "free" storage, however I agree with another post that this is going to make the service more complicated to use. The user base will never agree on just what that service will be and there will be many complaints from those who don't like that particular service. It seems that there are number of possible solutions on the market today for keeping an image archive of receiptons. For those who have suggested Dropbox, you can download a scanner image for your phone and scan every receipt to Dropbox (or many other services) already---without need of any change to the EEBA service. Personally, I scan them at home and store everything to a RAID 4 TB hard drive to maintain my own archive...it just depends on how critical these receipts are to you. For those that are extremely critical, no offense to EEBA or any other service, but I am not going to depend on any 3rd party to protect my essential data...I want to control that process myself! With that said, I think EEBA adding receipt imaging to their service would be a very convenient addition for many of the reasons already cited above. I think the way to handle the storage issue is to sell storage in varying amounts to users on an additional subscription basis. Those who truly want the service will pay the required fee (within reason) while the rest of the user base would not put any additional demand on your storage systems. This would seemingly be the only way in which the data could remain on your servers and be available by sync to other devices on the user's account. Personally, since I already maintain a separate receipt archive, I probably would not pay an additional fee to subscribe to the service, but I'm sure may others would.

Scan through Android market. MOST do but not for OCR to create record.

Why not EEBA as its the best. Store a image for tax purposes if needed or just validating you entered records correct on split expenses.

Yes I know I logged it already Becky but just found this site.

I agree with tleish. You (EEBA) could use S3 or Google Cloud Storage as the backing store and cap each paid account's storage usage at 1GB for Plus accounts and 2GB for Premium accounts. 1GB costs about $0.10/month and would be enough for 10000 100KB files :)

I suggest making use of a user's free Dropbox acct for storage of pictures of receipts taken from EEBA or Better Budget on a smart phone. Just offer a simple link to the picture of the receipt from each transaction line. That should be incredibly simple and easy!

This should be a quick and easy thing to incorporate into the smart phone apps. No need for EEBA or Better Budget to worry about providing storage of receipt pictures, at all.

I agree that the best solution would be to stay away from third party storage. Too complicated for the typical user; it needs to be seamless.

I, for one, would be willing to pay a significant increase each month to have this option. My company uses Concur to track travel expenses, and their app has this feature. It is just a natural extension of entering the transaction, and gives you so much detail for the future.

I've been very interested in this, but changed my mind.. It'll be very difficult to scan in long receipts (e.g. groceries), and I found a better solution..

I think the overall paperless route is the way to go, and I'm currently in that process.. using a Fujitsu iX500 scanner and AmazonBasics shredder (both amazing btw), I scanned & shredded an entire year of receipts (1200+) in about 5 hours, and that's sorting in some categories. If you just want to scan all into one file, it's literally a couple minutes a week. Then scan all your other documents, use a cloud backup solution (using CrashPlan and love it), and never need filing cabinets of paper! I'm getting rid of 7 filing cabinet drawers..

Hope that helps / encourages any others out there.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Receipt photo for transactions.


It would be wonderful if you could add a photo for each item for example if I don't have time to enter it right I could take a photo and then go back later and entering the information for the envelope or better yet it could scan it and take the relevant information and put it in for me. It could also be handy for returns tax reasons things like that... Anything you can do to help small-business owners take care of the receipts for taxes at the end of the year would be awesome as well... Maybe we can even have our separate account within the program of personal and business... Thanks!!!!
