    To do so, you need to perform some work on your side.

    After the image is recognized, you can get XML file containing all the recognized text along with its coordinates. After that you need to parse it and determine the meaning of various parts of recognized text.

    We consider adding server-side parsing functionality in future.

    The XLSX output is perfect and easily parsed (after I convert it to a text file)

    Hi! I'm looking for the same feature. Is this method public, or is it still in beta? If so, could you give me any information about this?

    The method for receipt capture is now offically released for the USA. For other countries it is still in beta. Please see more information here: http://ocrsdk.com/documentation/apireference/processReceipt/
