Scan your receipts and send them electronically to Shoeboxed to organize and store them online.

Shoeboxed can integrate with QuickBooks Online under certain plans, and spending analysis charts and graphs are available at Shoeboxed.com, too. There is also a free app available for iPhone, iPad and Android that offers features such as the ability to use your phone’s built-in GPS to accurately track mileage and to capture receipt images using your smartphone's camera.

Using Shoeboxed's Magic Envelopes, which are free envelopes you can stuff full of receipts, business cards and other paper clutter and mail in, saves you having to go through the labor of scanning. Shoeboxed will scan them into digital files and then ship them back to you for free.

If you use Google's Gmail, receipts can be automatically imported from your email. If you don't use Gmail, you can still email your receipts to Shoeboxed so they're tracked.

Shoeboxed can export data to Quicken, Excel, and to file formats CSV or PDF. 

There are three core Shoeboxed plans to pick from:

  • Lite: up to 50 documents per month for one user.
  • Classic: small business owners, 150 documents per month, prepaid Magic Envelopes (U.S. Only) with document return, and QuickBooks Online integration. For up to two users.
  • Business: same offerings as Classic but with 500 documents per month and up to three users.

Each plan offers a free trial period. There is also a free but very small-scale plan with a limit of five documents per month, as well as a large business plan for 1,000 documents per month. More
