Tired of spending the end of the month searching for and uploading all your receipts? Now you can add them in real time as you receive them and save valuable time. Qonto takes it from there to pair the receipt with its corresponding transaction. This feature also works for transactions that have yet to be created: the invoice is paired as soon as the transaction is completed.

Forward your documents to the unique e-mail address available in your Settings, by clicking Forwarding email address in the side menu.
