Got questions? We have answers!
First of all, make sure your IHR account has at least one email account linked to it and verified
To check this, go to the app’s main screen and tap on your name or avatar. Then tap on “Account Info” and look at the “Linked Email Accounts” header. Make sure you have a valid email address under it. If you already have one, great! If you have one but there’s a message saying “Verify your email address” underneath, please tap on it to verify it.
Once that’s confirmed, just send any receipts you want from any of the linked email accounts to
firstname.lastname@example.org. We will receive and add them to your archive in a matter of moments!
You can add custom hashtags to any receipt by entering the receipt, tapping on the three dots icon on the top right of the screen, and then on the “Add Note” button. Once there, you can add any notes about the purchase and also add #hashtags to give each receipt a tag. For example, #groceries or #food
You can also do this with individual items on each receipt by tapping on any item and following the same instructions. Once a receipt or item has been given a hashtag, you can then use the Search function to quickly find them by writing in the tag. So searching “food” will bring up all the receipts with that tag!
After taking the first picture of the top portion of your long receipt, tap on the “+” button that will appear in the bottom center of the screen. That will allow you to take as many pictures as you need to scan the whole receipt!
Due to their handwritten nature, tips can be a little tricky for the app to scan. If it doesn’t automatically recognize one, you can manually add it to any of your receipts by tapping on the individual receipt, then tapping on the View button under the vendor’s name. Once there, tap the Edit button on the top right and you can add the tip and tax. When you’re done, tap the Save button and the changes will be saved to the receipt.
First of all, make sure you have the most up-to-date version of the app by going into the App or Google Play Store and updating all apps. Next, check that the email you’re using to log in is the same that is linked to your account.
If you’ve already checked both things but the app still doesn’t work, try uninstalling the I Hate Receipts app by pressing and holding the icon on your desktop, then tapping on “Remove App”. Then download it again from the app store and log in as usual
If the issue persists, please send us a message to email@example.com or via social media and we’ll get back to you right away!
You can export up to 25 receipts into a single .pdf or .csv file by tapping on the receipt you want, then on the three dots icon on the top right, and finally on the “Export to PDF” or “Export to CSV” buttons. Either one will generate a link that you can then access to download the file.
If you wish to select more than one receipt, start by tapping on the “All” button to the right of Receipts on the main screen. From there, tap the “Select” button on the top right and then tap all the receipts you want to include. Once you’ve done that, tap on the three dots and then on your desired format. The resulting file will include all the receipts you selected!
The I Hate Receipts app is and will always be available to download free of charge.
It is an upgraded premium version of the app that offers a series of exclusive features such as:
- Export to PDF/CSV
- Amazon/Walmart integration to send all your receipts from those merchants directly to the IHR app upon purchase
- Import receipts directly from your Photo Gallery or Camera Roll
The Professional version is available to all users as an annual subscription for only $9.99 — for the whole year! But if you would like to try it first, you have access to a free 1-month trial. To start, simply tap on your name or avatar on the app’s main screen, then on the “Subscriptions” button, and finally on “Buy.”
