Best Receipt Parser APIs in 2024

What is Receipt Parser API?

Receipt Parser API allows users to extract structured data from receipts using machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) techniques. The API takes an image of a receipt as input and uses OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology to recognize the key information on the receipt, such as the merchant name, date of purchase, item descriptions, prices, and taxes.

Performance variations of Receipt Parser APIs

For all companies who use Receipt Parser in their software: cost and performance are real concerns. The Receipt Parser market is quite dense and all those providers have their benefits and weaknesses.

Performances of Receipt Parsers vary according to the specificity of data used by each AI engine for their model training

Performance variations according to the languages

‍Receipt Parser APIs perform differently depending on the language of the text. Different specificities exist:

  • Region specialties: some Receipt Parser APIs improve their machine learning algorithm to make them accurate for text in a specific language. For example, some Receipt Parser APIs perform well in English (US, UK, Canada, South Africa, Singapore, Hong Kong, Ghana, Ireland, Australia, India, etc.), while others are specialized in Asian languages (Korean, Japanese, Chinese, etc.).
  • Rare language specialty: some Receipt Parsing vendors care about rare languages and dialects. You can find OCR Receipt APIs that allow you to process text in Gujarati, Marathi, Burmese, Pashto, Zulu, Swahili, etc.

Performance variations according to the quality of the document

When testing multiple Receipt OCR APIs, you will find that providers' accuracy can be different according to text quality. For example, some Receipt Parsing APIs may perform well on handwritten text while others may perform better with digital text.

Why choose Eden AI to manage your Receipt Parser APIs

‍Companies and developers from a wide range of industries (Social Media, Retail, Health, Finances, Law, etc.) use Eden AI’s unique API to easily integrate Receipt Parser tasks in their cloud-based applications, without having to build their own solutions.

Eden AI offers multiple AI APIs on its platform amongst several technologies: Text-to-Speech, Language Detection, Sentiment Analysis, Receipt Parser, Question Answering, Data Anonymization, Speech Recognition, and so forth.

We want our users to have access to multiple Receipt Parser engines and manage them in one place so they can reach high performance, optimize cost and cover all their needs. There are many reasons for using multiple APIs :

  • Fallback provider is the ABCs: You need to set up a provider API that is requested if and only if the main Receipt Parser API does not perform well (or is down). You can use confidence score returned or other methods to check provider accuracy.
  • Performance optimization: After the testing phase, you will be able to build a mapping of providers’ performance based on the criteria you have chosen (languages, fields, etc.). Each data that you need to process will then be sent to the best Receipt Parser API.‍
  • Cost - Performance ratio optimization: You can choose the cheapest Receipt Parser provider that performs well for your data.
  • Combine multiple AI APIs: This approach is required if you look for extremely high accuracy. The combination leads to higher costs but allows your AI service to be safe and accurate because Receipt Parser APIs will validate and invalidate each other for each piece of data.
