Receipt fields



General fields structure


Each receipt object contains a set of different fields.


To access a receipt object, you need to create a mindee.Client and call the Client.parse_receipt method:


from mindee import Client

# Instantiate your client
mindee_client = Client(expense_receipts_token="your_token_here")

# Call the Mindee expense receipts endpoint and parse the result
receipt_data = mindee_client.parse_receipt("/path/to/my/file")


Whatever the field type, each of them contains the four following attributes:


  • Value: (Str or Float depending on the field type), corresponds to the field value. Set to None if the field was not extracted.
  • Probability: (Float), confidence score of the field prediction.
  • bbox:(Array[Float]), contains the relative vertices coordinates of the bounding box containing the field in the image. If the field is not written, the bbox is an empty array. 
  • reconstructed: (Bool), True if the field was reconstructed using other fields.


Depending on the Field type, there can be extra attributes.
