Announcing our Brand New Integration with Wave Accounting!

You asked, we listened! Shoeboxed is now integrated with Wave Accounting, the fastest-growing small-business accounting application in the world.

We agree with Wave: Shoeboxes full of receipts are a pain, and that’s why we created Shoeboxed in the first place. Like some accounting applications out there, Wave eliminates manual data entry by pulling data directly from your bank or credit card feeds. This is great for keeping track of your cash flow, but it’s not enough for full-blown, audit-proof accounting. Why? Because you need the receipts, silly! Lucky for you, the Wave Accounting integration with Shoeboxed solves that problem very elegantly.

You see, your bank or credit card only knows where you spent money, but not what you spent it on. A 50-dollar charge at a Shell Gas station could be for gasoline (deductible as Auto / Fuel) or for beer and chips (harder to justify as a deductible business expense). If the Tax Man ever has a question, you just need to show him the receipt that goes with that bank transaction – if you can find the little piece of paper, that is…

Enter Shoeboxed + Wave Accounting.
Fast, easy small business accounting. Wave Accounting is made for small businesses and solo entrepreneurs, accountant approved, and 100% free. Wave slashes the time you spend on accounting and bookkeeping, and saves you money every day. Since their launch in November 2010, they have won over hundreds of thousands of small business owners in 200+ countries around the world!

With Wave Accounting, you can connect your bank account or credit card to pull data automatically and eliminate manual data entry. Then, you can also connect your Shoeboxed account to pull receipt data (and the image of the original receipt) into Wave Accounting.

If Wave detects a Shoeboxed transaction that seems to be in their system already, they will let you know, and you can either merge them (with the attached receipt), or just replace the less complete one (sorry, bank feed, but I want my receipts where I can see them).

Why Wave?

  • It’s free. Wave is 100% free, not just a free trial. And to make it even better, Wave customers get special deals on everything from computers and credit cards to office supplies.
  • It’s easy to use. Connect your bank account, credit card and Shoeboxed. The result is no manual data entry, full audit protection, and you don’t even have to know anything about accounting!
  • It is the best accounting integration Shoeboxed has. The de-duplication feature is what really sets this integration apart. Don’t worry about having the same transaction in your accounting system twice. Bank feeds are great, Shoeboxed is better, and you can have both without making an accounting mess!
