- Q. I'm having difficulty adding a bill with Snap-to-Pay from my mobile app. How can I make sure it is added correctly?
A. To capture a bill, simply place the full-page 8.5 x 11 inch document on a flat, well-lit surface and follow on-screen prompts. The program will not work with bill stubs, credit cards, checks or handwritten documents. Use a background that provides a contrast to the bill, for example, a dark table or counter top. Make sure to hold the mobile device flat above the paper bill. and hold your phone very still to avoid skewed or blurred images.
