ReceiptSheet: a Google Sheets add-on to track and analyze email receipts

How much did you spend on Amazon last year?

Do you need to keep track of which Ubers you took for work?

Which costs more, your video game habit or your makeup habit?

Intro

ReceiptSheet is a Google Sheets add-on with the answer to all these questions. As long as your receipts are sent to a Gmail address, ReceiptSheet can extract your receipts from your email, tag them, and send them to a spreadsheet. From there, you can create your own analysis, or use our custom, super-cool ReceiptSheet graphs. These include a drive map, showing everywhere you’ve taken ride-shares, and a tree map showing the relative size of your purchases.

Unlike our competitors, ReceiptSheet isĀ privacy-focused. Your emails never leave Google’s servers, because ReceiptSheet lives on Google’s servers. Your emails will never be seen or used for nefarious purposes.

And, if you like, you can evenĀ make money off of your receipts! All you have to do is sign up for our survey program. You share your receipts with us, and we email you surveys on what you’ve bought. Answer the surveys and get money ($1-$3) per question. It’s completely optional, but a great way to make a little spare change.

Receipt extraction

You get tons of emailed receipts from Amazon, Uber, Lyft, Paypal, and everyone else. If you’re anything like me, you treat your emailed receipts much like your paper receipts, and throw them in the corner.

But, it doesn’t have to be that way! ReceiptSheet is a one-click solution to organizing all of your receipts in a spreadsheet. You click the button, and your receipts automatically travel from your Gmail to a Google Sheet. That’s it! You’re done!

Receipt tagging

You get a lot of receipts from a lot of different vendors. ReceiptSheet automatically adds information based on the vendor, the price, and the product info, but sometimes you want more information than that. For instance, maybe you buy some stuff for personal use, and some stuff for your side hustle. You need to keep track of that for tax time!

ReceiptSheet makes it easy. You can tag receipts with additional information, based on the vendor, product name, or email content. For instance, if you want to categorize all your Uber trips for business as a business expense, you can do that with a click. Bam! It’s all tagged!

Graphs galore!

I love a pretty graph. That’s why ReceiptSheet is graph-friendly! First, there’s all the normal graphs you can do on your own: bar graphs, line graphs, scatterplots. But ReceiptSheet kicks it up a notch with custom graphs.

We have tree maps, satellite maps, stacked bar graphs, opportunity cost graphs. We got it all! This is the information we wanted to know about our own purchases, so we let you know the same.

Privacy focus

Letting a program into your Gmail is scary. There’s a lot of personal stuff in there, and we respect that. So we focused on privacy for ReceiptSheet.

That means all of our permissions are spelled out in the very beginning. We only ask for the bare minimum to do what we need to do. We will never send your receipts off of Google’s servers, look at your expenses ourselves, or use your data in any sneaky way. Promise.

Make money off of my receipts???? Really???

Yes. Really. This is an opt-in program. If you don’t want to do it, you don’t have to. But if you do want a little pocket change ($1-$3 per question, $3-$6 per survey), you can share your receipts with us. Then we’ll send you quick surveys on what you’ve purchased, and pay you for each question you complete.

The surveys are from companies who want to know how their customers think. Think of it like calling the company’s consumer hotline, but you get paid for it. Cool, right? Follow the link on the add-on to find more.
