OneReceipt aims to give users access to all their online receipts

onereceipt aims to give users access all their online receipts dashboard

Shopping online has become part of the norm for holiday gifts, personal purchases, and getting great deals on items that would no doubt cost more from a brick-and-mortar store. Most of those online purchases are quickly followed by a receipt that shows up in your email inbox, but how often do you actually look at those or take the time to organize them? We’re guessing the answer is rarely or never. New online service OneReceipt is aiming to change that and give users a simple and easy way to look back at all of their receipts from online purchases in a clean visual format. 

The service is free and users can signup for a OneReceipt account in seconds. After that, users can sync the service to an email account, and OneReceipt will dig through your entire messy inbox to find and aggregate email receipts from your online purchases. After pulling those out of your email, the service will give you a timeline view of your purchases, including order numbers, item breakdowns, and prices for everything in each order. The service will also group together multiple email messages that were received about a single order so that you can see them all in one place. If you really want to get into the tracking aspect, you can also take a photo of a paper receipt with your smartphone and email it to your @onereceipt address; from there, OneReceipt will automatically pull the important information and include it in your online purchase timeline. 

The service also offers helpful features like shipment transit information, alerts when you are close to the “no longer returnable” date, and filters to show you just how much you spent on entertainment, travel, or deal sites. The use of the site seems mostly up to the user, but it could definitely be a helpful tool for those who shop online often, are fond of keeping track of purchases, or want to see a breakdown of where their money is actually going. The service was in beta until a couple days ago but is now free and open to the public.
