Capture your receipts best side
A how-to for receipt capture
Do you have a good side when taking photos?
When you take a photo to upload your receipt, we want to make sure you get that blue-steel shot. Before we get into tips for a photoshoot, if you upload your receipts then you are a SUPERSTAR!
It’s the best way to earn rewards from your favourite brands as they want to support you supporting them! It’s also handy to have your receipt for those pesky product returns when you’re asked, “Where’s your receipt?”.
As Shping gears up to be the biggest product database, our system sometimes gets confused, so from time to time we may need your help mapping products from your receipt. We’ll give extra rewards for that. Just keep an eye on your ‘Needs attention’ folder for those products. This will also help you level up your app, too! So here is a quick guide on how to capture the best side of your receipt.
● Black and white sets the tone – Place your receipt on a flat solid colour background away from any other text and make your camera width the same width as your receipt.● Get the mood lighting just right – Make sure you are in a well-lit area so the information is clear on your phone camera.
● Your receipt is beautiful so get all of it – Take multiple photos from top to bottom to get the whole receipt, as information and the top of the receipt and the bottom is just as important as the products.
● Let nothing slip through the cracks – your ‘Needs attention’ folder may have some products that can be mapped for added Shping Coin. So, to sum it up, make sure you take multiple shots of just your receipt from top to bottom with great lighting.
Don’t forget to play by the rules:
Only upload your own receipts within 7 days of purchase. Multiple uploads of the same receipt won’t work.
