How to Earn Money from Receipts

I make money from my receipts (and sometimes other peoples). Scanning your receipts is a quick and easy way to earn cash. If you’re wondering how to make money from your receipts – follow this guide. Just take a picture of your receipt and upload them to these money-earning websites and apps. Your receipts are used for market research about consumer behaviour. But your data is completely anonymous, and your personal data will never be sold or passed on to third parties without your consent.

Here are the best apps that pay you to upload your receipts.

paid receipts


Shoppix is an app that will give you 25 points (30 if you upload on the day of purchase) for every receipt that you upload! It’s super simple to do & once you reach £5 you can cash out via PayPal, Amazon credit or love2shop voucher. You can only upload one receipt per shop per day (so it’s no use stealing receipts that were left on the counter before you).

Top tip: Try to upload them on the day – you get a 5 point bonus if you do this, keep your eye out for extra bonuses & surveys (I got 100 points just for opening the app on Christmas day). Use code 4CSE6DVO for a 200 point bonus when you sign up!

Receipt Hog

Receipt Hog is very similar to Shoppix; it’s an app that rewards you when you upload your receipts. Apps like receipt hog are easy to use. Once you reach £5 you can cash out via PayPal or Amazon gift card. One advantage to Receipt Hog is that you can upload three receipts per shop per day (so you can grab the receipts that were left on the counter before you).

Top tip: Get your family/friends to pass you any receipts they get or grab the ones left at the counter to earn points quick. Keep your eye out for extra bonuses such as the Hog Slots (you can win anything from 2000 points, £66 or one of their daily trips). You also get more points for higher value receipts.
