AbacusUpload Receipt

Since you're saving images of your receipts anyway, you can cut your work in half and set up this Zapier automation to add them to Abacus as well as your cloud storage. It will watch any Dropbox folder you need for any new files, sending each new one you upload to Abacus so that it can be stored in your receipt bin every time.

Note: This automation will only work with jpg, png, or pdf file formats

How It Works

  1. A new file is uploaded to a Dropbox folder
  2. Zapier adds that file to your Abacus receipt bin

  • An Abacus account
