Not only has this service been great for my business and a big time saver, the service that comes with Shoeboxed is also great. Thanks.

Easy and Professional
The integration between Shoeboxed and Quickbooks online is seemless. It has streamlined our accounting practices and saves money on accountants. A must for any business!

Bridging the Bookkeeper Gap
Shoeboxed has helped bridge the communication gap between business owner and bookkeeper. Our business buys from many online vendors and our bookkeeper does not always know how to categorize them. Now I can set automated categorization rules and this is no longer a problem. I am glad to be a shoeboxed user!

Love, love, love Shoeboxed.com!
I must say that without Shoeboxed saving me all the time in the world scanning in the docs I mail to them, I would not have had time to expand my business services this year. I don't have to leave my office and search all over town to get good pricing on scanning, because even with the thickest of my client's accounting files, no one beats their prices or their scanning service!
I just use those lovely magic envelopes and VOILA!

Far exceeds my expectations
I am now into my third week of my plan to "Go Paperless" this year. I needed to tackle 2 problems. First how to create electronic copies of all of my paper and second to get that info into my accounting software. My expectation was that I could get a scanner for my existing paper and I did exactly that. It works fine and I then tag the info and manually import it into the bookkeeping software. Being a noob in all of this I thought I was being efficient.
Along comes Shoeboxed.
I stumbled onto a reference to Shoeboxed and signed-up for a trial. I was unsure how this was going to help until I received a call from a customer service rep. I was a bit shocked because this person was interested in my situation and spoke without any hint of this being a rehearsed sales pitch. I asked how Shoeboxed was going to help me and the finer points of the service became clear to me.
What I had failed to grasp about Shoeboxed was the tight integration with my Quickbooks online account. I am able to have my receipts classified and imported automatically. The speed is fantastic and the accuracy is incredible. They even correctly identify my hand written total for included tips with meals! This is great! I get a chance to review each scan and make adjustments and the changes become rules that follow on to the next similar reciept. No less than amazing.

Perfect for busy business owner, now my bookkeeper has everything she needs!
I was floundering in a mess before I used Shoeboxed. I mostly use the iPhone app for Shoeboxed. I had receipts everywhere. I just snapped pic after pic of them, and then tossed them in the trash! Depending on the time of day, either minutes or a few hours later at the most, it is processed in Shoeboxed. They extract the vendor and amount off of it.
If I make an online purchase, I use the Mac program from Shoeboxed. I just save a PDF of the receipt, then drag the file to the Shoeboxed. It's only a few extra seconds.
When I am ready I just import the file into Quickbooks into an account I named Shoeboxed Debit. I go one after the next and choose the sub account in QB (Medical Expense, Supplies, etc). It starts to guess them correctly after you do that vendor.
Now I have a bookkeeper who logs in and downloads all the information, I don't even need to talk to her, except to answer a few questions. The service could potentially be streamlined a little bit more, but this is great for organizing your business.

A solution named Shoeboxed
There is something inherently awesome about a product or service that really does what it was designed/marketed to do. The folks at Shoeboxed have really helped to inspire me to begin traveling down the road of going completely paperless. My current collection of receipts has grown considerably out of control - and with tax season, oh boy..
The only thing that I'm still waiting for is my pre-paid envelope to arrive - so I haven't tasted the full body flavor of being able to mail my paperwork in for scanning/processing yet. (I've been using my Samsung Galaxy S3 for local receipt pics that are processing without a hitch.)
Great job, I'm satisfied beyond words.

Not suited for Quickbooks Online
One thing I have to commend is their customer service. It was very easy to contact a live body at Shoeboxed. However there are several issues concerning integration with Quickbooks Online that need further development. The service is adequate if all your accounts are bank accounts or credit card accounts but if you have AP Trade accounts then the transactions come over as journal entries which don't allow them to be billed to a customer/client. Additionally there isn't enough description of what is on the receipt thus requiring manual entry of the description of items on the receipt as well as a reference number for tracking later. While I don't recommend the service for Quickbooks Online at this time I would encourage people to take advantage of the free trial period and see for themselves. I look forward to the continued development of this service and hope that it fits my needs in the near future.
