To add a receipt to a transaction, follow these steps:
You can also add a receipt via ‘My receipts’, by following these steps:
Use ‘My receipts’ to keep all your receipts in the same place. You’ll then have a digital copy of every receipt, so it won’t matter if you lose the original paper one. It’s great for things that you’ve paid for in cash, or for keeping track of new transactions that aren’t showing up in your business bank account yet.
You can store as many receipts as you like in ‘My receipts’ on your Metro Bank app, and they do not have to be linked to a transaction.
Anyone with access to your Metro Bank business account will be able to see the receipts added to it.
Yes. If you add a receipt to ‘My receipts’, our ‘smart matching’ feature will automatically add it to relevant transactions in your Metro Bank business account. Receipts are added to transactions based on their value and date. It’s a good idea for you to check that receipts have been added to the right transaction.
To see your receipts, just follow these steps:
To download your receipts, just follow these steps:
Receipts can be downloaded in the following file formats:
You can remove a receipt from a transaction by following these steps:
To delete a receipt from the app, simply follow these steps:
You can forward emailed receipts to the app. You’ll need to create a special email address in the app to receive these emails. Set this up by following the steps below:
Once you have set up your receipt email address, you are good to go. Simply forward any emailed receipts in PDF or HTML format to your receipt email address, and they will be stored as digital copies in ‘My receipts’.
We block emails from certain domains to avoid spam. Most receipts will not come from one of the blocked domains. You can forward emails from any email address (inducing blocked domains) if the original email is from a domain that isn’t blocked. If you have a valid receipt email from one of these domains you might need to take a picture of the receipt and add it to your receipts manually instead. These are some of the domains that are blocked:
No, you can’t add a receipt to a transaction that’s not in your account yet. You will have to wait for the transaction to clear and appear in your account before you can add a receipt to it.
If you’ve captured a receipt in ‘My receipts’, ‘smart matching’ may add the receipt to the transaction once it’s cleared.
