Using QuickBooks to Snap and Sort Receipts

You may have seen those fun Danny DeVito ads showing us how easy it is to snap and save your paper receipts into your QuickBooks, but how easy is it really?

Well, that depends if you have QuickBooks Online, or QuickBooks Desktop.

QuickBooks Online
Receipt management is an intuitive feature of QuickBooks Online. Here's a good article showing how to manage your receipts in general that also references links on how to use QuickBooks Online to “snap and sort” your expenses.

QuickBooks Desktop
Unfortunately, it's not as easy because the Desktop software requires a plug-in to connect your "snap" device such as your phone to your local QuickBooks Desktop files on your PC.

a) Customize a solution for your QuickBooks Desktop Premiere version if you contact their support at or 1-800-446-8848 for a fee.
b) Search the Intuit AppStore that lists 3rd party apps that can integrate with QuickBooks Desktop. Costs can range from $35/mo and up depending on the number of users in your organization.

How do you sort and organize your receipts for personal or business? Please share your experiences and what works best for you!
