FREE RECEIPT APPS FOR YOUR PHONE TO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER:

Wave Receipts

Wave Receipts is a phone app that you can link to your Wave account. As you take pictures of your receipts on this app, it uploads the pictures automatically to your linked Wave account.

Office Lens

Wave Receipts is a great app, but if you are looking for clearer pictured receipts, you can use the Office Lens app as well. There is an extra step to take. After you take the picture you will have to upload it to your Wave account through the Waves Receipts app if not directly to your Wave account from your computer.

Patreon

Start a membership business to develop a direct relationship with your biggest fans and generate predictable, recurring revenue from your creative work.

Patreon is a great interactive monthly donation platform with options for supporter incentives. The only thing to note is that all funds collected are USD only and they do not at this time support issuing tax receipts to your supporters. Great for non-profits but possibly a lot of work for charities as they grow their support base.
