When Fujitsu released their ScanSnap Receipt program, it caused excitement among many ScanSnap users, but that excitement quickly turned to annoyance for those outside of the United States: the software was available for US-purchased ScanSnaps only.
Well, awesome DocumentSnap reader Nekipedia tipped me off that ScanSnap Receipt is now available in Canada (see the bottom of the post for other countries).
Update 10/15/2015: ScanSnap Receipt is now available in United Kingdom and Australia.
How To Download ScanSnap Receipt In Canada
In the comments to my ScanSnap Receipt post, Nekipedia reported on an email exchange with Fujitsu, and their response:
Thank you for buying our ScanSnap iX500 scanner.
Canadian customers can download the ScanSnap Receipt software by filling in the request form at the URL shown below. Shortly after you submit your completed form you will receive an e-mail response with the actual download URL, a user name, and temporary license.
I hope that you enjoy your ScanSnap Receipt software!
Nekipedia then provided further instructions:
The link brings you to the page “Download Request Form for ScanSnap Receipt”. From there you begin
Step 1: Enter the “PART NO.”, “SER.NO.”, “Name”, & “E-mail Address” then click submit
Step 2: Confirm your entries
Step 3: Submit the form
If your entry correctly matches an eligible ScanSnap product, you will receive an email [mine was nearly instant] with a link to download the product, click the link and after you enter the user name and password from the email.. voila – both Mac and Windows versions are available to download and they install and run perfectly.
They also include all updates previously released.
If you’re in Canada, give this a try and please report back how it works for you.
ScanSnap Receipt In Other Countries
Awesome DocumentSnap readers Michelle and David both pointed me to the news that ScanSnap Receipt will be released in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) regions in “Autumn 2015”.
When it’s actually released, I’ll update this post. It’s not clear to me what the status of ScanSnap Receipt is in Australia & New Zealand. Aussie/Kiwi ScanSnap users, let me know if you’re able to download it.
Update 10/15/2015: According to awesome DocumentSnap readers David, Michael and Brandon, ScanSnap Receipt is now available to download in the UK and Australia (and perhaps other countries too?). They were prompted to download the new ScanSnap update, but if you were not, right-click on your ScanSnap icon, go to Help and then Online Update. You may need to do it a few times to download everything.
If you are in a country other than United States, Canada, UK, or Australia and are able to download it, please leave a comment and let us know.
It’s been a while, but I’m glad to see that ScanSnap Receipt is finally becoming available across the world.
