It provides members with control and peace of mind over their expenses. It also allows trusted individuals to access and manage the account, track their business expenses, get a snapshot analysis of the past year’s purchases, and download their current and previous transactions.

ReceiptMatch makes it easier to manage Business Card receipts by allowing small businesses to view and print store receipt images and transaction details of the online statement. It also allows American Express OPEN (@OPENForum) Card members to send receipts by snapping a photo, forwarding a receipt over email, or uploading from a computer.

In addition, it matches receipts to online transactions by scanning the purchase date, amount, and merchant name.


With ReceiptMatch, small businesses do not need to look for receipts and rely on written notes. The new app allows them to take a picture of the Business Card receipt using a Smartphone and matches the receipt to the appropriate item in the online statement.

ReceiptMatch offers concise back-office support and is the only expense management solution that gives business owners the ability to match each Business Card receipt to their American Express OPEN Card statement.”
