How to Use the Mobile App to Upload Paperwork

The Dext Mobile app is the quickest and easiest way to submit physical, paper receipts, invoices and other documentation to Dext Prepare. 

There is an iOS version and an Android version of the Dext Mobile App.

Important Note: Projects, Customers and Payment Methods are only available on Dext Prepare Business Plus, and Business Premium. Find out more about the different products here.

Submitting items through the mobile app is simple:

  1. Open the mobile app
  2. Take a picture of your receipt


Note: There are multiple camera modes on the Mobile App that allow any type of paper document to be captured easily.

Single Mode – for when you have one document to capture and the information is only on one page.

Multiple Mode – for when you have several documents that you would like to capture. You can take up to 50 photos of individual documents before submitting. Dext will then separate each photo into a separate item.

Combine Mode – for when the information you need to capture is spread over several pages (up to a maximum of 50) or you have a very long receipt and all the information will not fit in one picture frame. Dext will then combine your photos into one item.

  1. Select Costs or Sales.


Please Note: You can change this after the receipt has been uploaded and extracted by going to the Costs or Sales inbox, opening the item, going to the three dots in the top right corner of the screen and tapping Convert to Sales or Convert to Costs.

  1. Review

After capturing the image of your receipt, you can add more contextual information to be included with your item when it is submitted.


Please note: some fields cannot be edited before the upload has finished processing because they are automatically extracted.

  1. Press Submit.
