How do I add receipts for my Business Card transactions using the ReceiptMatch Mobile App? +
To add a receipt for a Card transaction, tap on a transaction via your Pending Charges or Recent Activity and take a picture of your Business Card receipt. Once the picture is uploaded successfully, it will be linked with your selected Card transaction.
Additionally, you can tap on Capture Receipt from the Transactions screen to take a picture of your receipt, and we will attempt to automatically match the receipt to your transaction. If your receipt is from a purchase you made immediately prior to uploading the receipt, it may take a few days for the transaction to appear on your statement. If we are not able to automatically match a receipt to a transaction when you upload the receipt we will continue to try to match your receipt for up to 8 days.
Can I email a picture of a receipt or upload multiple receipts at once? +
Yes. In order to email pictures of receipts to your ReceiptMatch account, you will first have to sign in to your American Express online account at americanexpress.com
to add the email address from which you’d like to email receipts. Then click on the Manage Receipts button on the right-hand side of your online statement. After that, you can email your receipts from that email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can send in multiple receipts at once by including them as separate attachments in an email.
Why isn’t my receipt matched? +
A receipt may be unmatched for a number of reasons. If the receipt image is unclear or the receipt is associated with a purchase you made more than 10 months ago, you need to manually match it to the transaction by signing in to your American Express online account at americanexpress.com.
If a transaction hasn’t appeared on your Card account statement yet, the receipt is unmatched until the transaction appears and the receipt is able to be matched to it. Please also be sure the receipt is uploaded to the correct Business Card.
What is a Tag and how does it work from the ReceiptMatch Mobile App? +
Tags are your own personal labels that you can apply to receipts which help you categorize your expenses. Tags can be applied through the ReceiptMatch Mobile App or directly to transactions through your American Express online account. Tags applied to a transaction through the app will appear on your online account. Tags applied to transactions on your online account will automatically appear in the ReceiptMatch Mobile App, as well.
Tags are unique to each Card. If you have multiple Business Cards, be sure to select the Business Card to see the list of associated tags. You may add tags for a Business Card from your American Express online account or from the app. You can remove tags for a Business Card through your online account.
Basic Card Members can create either a shared tag or a private tag. Shared tags will be available to any Employee Card Members on the account. Both the Basic and Employee Card Members can apply shared tags to receipts. Private tags are only usable and viewable by the Card Member who created the tag as well as any designated Account Managers. Employee Card Members cannot create shared tags.
What is a Note and how does it work? +
You can add notes to receipts for your own record keeping purposes. The notes will appear with the receipt from the ReceiptMatch Mobile App and in your American Express online account. Once you snap a photo of your receipt via the app, you will see the option to add a note on the Review screen prior to attaching the receipt to a transaction, or sending the receipt though the auto-match flow.
