How to use the Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 with Scan2Invoice?

The Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 is a very popular scanner to scan invoices and receipts into cloud accounting software like QuickBooks Online and Xero.

If you own a Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner you might have noticed that the ScanSnap does not show up in the Scan2Invoice scanner list and the scan button in Scan2Invoice will not work.

The reason for this is that the Fujitsu ScanSnap does not support the so called TWAIN standard. Please see the link below for a detailed explanation why Fujitsu chose not to support this standard:
Why Doesn’t ScanSnap come with TWAIN drivers?

 

The good news is that you still can use the ScanSnap with Scan2Invoice (see image below).
