I’ve talked to several people this week that are ready to sign up for Shoeboxed, but have one last question: If I have a backlog of receipts, how do I get started?
Sure, Shoeboxed is great for keeping up month-to-month with your receipts, but if you have a backlog, some find that their volume is just overwhelming. They wouldn’t be able to catch up if they just had one envelope per month. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone, and Shoeboxed can certainly help.
Indeed most people that need to get their receipts organized have a big backlog – a big box or two sitting in their home or office that has been piling high with receipts for years. After all, if you’ve never had Shoeboxed, you know how hard it is to get all those receipts organized, because no one wants to scan that many receipts themselves.
That’s why we offer bulk scanning.
On top of your Receipt Mail-In subscription, you can send in a large volume of receipts to us and we will scan them at special rates so you can get caught up. You just send your receipts to us in whatever container makes sense (box, big envelope, etc.). We scan them and upload them to your online account as normal, and then mail them back to you.
If you are interested in doing some bulk scanning, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (888) 369-4269.
Shoeboxed has some pretty new technology, and a lot of awesome features. In order to get a grasp on all you can do here, and how to best organize your receipts, it can be helpful if somebody walks you through it.
Since we can’t head over to your house and sit down with you, we decided that the next best thing would be to do a webcast. So guess what? Shoeboxed is hosting its first ever webcast next week. We want you to come!
Wait, hold on. What’s a webcast?
Webcast, webinar, live online instructional streaming video, potato, tomato. It’s kind of a buzzword I suppose.
Our webcast will be a live video that you can access online. The Shoeboxed team will be there to explain how Shoeboxed works, tips and tricks for using Shoeboxed, and to answer any questions you have via online chat. It should be a great resource. If you’ve had some lingering questions about Shoeboxed that you have been waiting to ask, we want you to come!
It’s also a good opportunity to get to know the people that make Shoeboxed happen each and every day.
The webcast will take place on Wednesday August 20 at 2PM EST. Register for free here.
We look forward to seeing you there!
I’ve heard this myth out there. So scary, this myth. I thought I might warn you, prepare you, just in case. Ready? I couldn’t believe it either: Many people are forced to tape receipts to paper.
Whether for bookkeeping, archiving, or expense reports, everyday many do-gooding Americans are told that scotch-taping their receipts to yet another piece of paper is the best way to get their expenses organized.
Fortunately, for each and every one of you that has been forced into such a situation, who has sat there with scotch tape in one hand and papers in the other wondering what on earth, who has wasted so much tape and so much paper.
To you we say, “Welcome.” Shoeboxed is here. Step away from the tape and put down the paper.
With Shoeboxed, you can send you receipts as loose pieces of paper (actually that’s how we want them) in an envelope. No tape or paper backing needed. Your receipts will be scanned and entered in to your online account, so you can sort them in a way that makes sense. There’s no need to have some elaborate filing system anymore. We’ll make your receipts sortable for you, without the tape.
