Receipt OCR in 3 Steps

Stay at the forefront of OCR receipt processing by effortlessly integrating our receipt OCR via API or SDK. Discover how Klippa’s receipt OCR extracts data in three simple steps.

Scan with an OCR receipt scanner or upload files through our receipt OCR API

Scan your receipts with Klippa’s receipt scanner SDK or upload your picture or PDF file to the Receipt OCR API. Uploading the image is done from a web or mobile app.

The receipt can be sent both uncropped (with the background) and cropped (without). If the picture was sent uncropped, our API automatically crops the document. Klippa’s SDK can be used in mobile apps as well.

Transform image to TXT with receipt OCR

As soon as we receive the picture or PDF, our software will convert it to a TXT file. The software extracts all data from the receipt, but it is not yet structured.

Get JSON output from the Receipt OCR API

The parser takes the TXT which was extracted by the OCR in the previous step and converts it into JSON, using machine learning algorithms. Then, the JSON is returned as output from the API.

From this point on, you can easily process the receipt in your database.

After the line item extraction, Klippa’s receipt OCR can perform line item classification. Using an additional algorithm, we are able to classify over 20 categories for each line. For example, ‘Food’, ‘Electronics’, ‘Alcohol’ and many other options.

Based on these categories, we can determine the VAT deductibility, distribute loyalty points and suggest general ledger accounts.
