You can use your text message to submit the receipts to Fyle directly. Currently, we support text-based receipt submission only for US and CAD orgs.
If you are part of an organization with USD currency and have your mobile number verified on your Primary Org on Fyle, here's how you can submit receipts:

  1. Open your Messages app on your mobile

  2. Add Fyle (+13024402921) as the recipient.

  3. Click a picture of your receipt or attach it from your gallery.

  4. Click on Send

After the receipt is submitted, Fyle's AI will extract the expense data from the receipt automatically. You can find all the expenses with the receipt attached from SMS on your Primary Org on Fyle.

  • For a corporate card expense, if the transaction is already on Fyle, we will match the receipt with the expense associated with the transaction.

  • If the receipt finds no matching expense in Fyle, we will create a new expense with the default payment mode of your organization. Read here to learn more about Payment Mode.

Note that standard messaging rates are applicable. The receipts submitted via text messages will have corresponding expenses only on Primary Org on Fyle.

  2. I'm part of multiple entities (organizations) on Fyle. How does it work, then?

    Currently Text message support is available only for one org, i.e., Primary Org on Fyle. Please ensure to complete mobile number verification on Primary Org.

    If you want to use Text message for all entities, you can add and verify different mobile numbers for each entity.

  3. What is the maximum size of the receipt allowed via text message?
