Uploading cards to the OCR API
The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a credit card or debit card to our API. Usually this is done from a mobile app or a web application. Klippa will automatically remove the background and correct any rotations.
If you do not have camera functionality in your app yet, the Klippa Camera SDK might be beneficial to help with card scanning.
Image to text using OCR
As soon as a card picture or PDF has been received the image is optimised and then converted to a TXT file. In this step all the text from the document is extracted, but it is not yet structured.
Getting JSON output from the API
The Klippa Parser takes the TXT gained from the OCR in step 2 and converts it into structured JSON using machine learning. The JSON is then returned as output from the API. From here the card data can easily be processed into your database.
