Document Parser

Document Parser can automatically parse yor PDF, JPG, PNG document to extract fields, tables, values from invoices, statements, orders and other PDF and scanned documents.

Built-in document parser templates:

  • General Invoice Template can parse invoices (English only) to invoice id, invoice date, extract total, tax, line items. Set the templateId parameter to 1 to use this template.

How to classify incoming documents before parsing them

Use /pdf/classifier endpoint (see below) to automatically sort / detect the class of the document based on keywords-based rules.

For example, you can easily define rules to find which vendor provided the document to find which template to apply accordingly. See Document Classifier for more details.
