Sometimes you need to publish items to locations in your accounting software that require the payment method to be linked to a bank account in Receipt Bank.

Rather than navigating to your account settings, you can now see from the receipt details page if your payment method needs to be linked. Even better, you can link it there and then!

Quick and easy receipt exports

We released an update to ensure smooth sailing when exporting your receipt data in bulk!

Downloads are now processed behind the scenes, so you can export up to 250 receipts in one go in no time at all!

Effortless connection to the mobile app

We released a handy tool to help improve your client’s experience when using Receipt Bank. If they navigate to the ‘Add items’ page, they can send a link straight to their smartphone to get connected on the mobile app in seconds.
