FAQs

Why can’t I upload my receipts?
There are several reasons this might be happening:
  • Try to upload the file again, in case the issue was a temporary one
  • The file size is more than 2 MB
  • Try using a different web browser
  • Try uploading the receipt while in incognito or private browsing mode
If either of these last two options work for you, the problem was likely caused by a browser add-on or extension. You can deactivate it and check again if it works.

If the previous options don’t work, the image/PDF file might be corrupted or have non-standard formatting applied to it.

Open the image or PDF on your computer, then choose Save As, normally found under the File menu, and save it somewhere else on your computer. Then try to upload the newly saved file.

Why can’t I preview some of my receipts?
Certain file types, like PDFs, require you to download it before you can view it.
