This paper develops ReceiptLogService Platform, which enables consumers to using their personal purchase receipts, store their receipt logs, and to use the data for various consumer services. The proposed platform consists of three components: receipt scanner, ReceiptLog DB, and ReceiptLog API. The receipt scanner digitizes daily receipts, and the ReceiptLog DB manages the scanned data. The ReceiptLog API provides the receipt log as a service. The API consists of the BasicAPI, which provides fundamental access for the receipt log, whereas the MiningAPI performs a statistical analysis of the receipt log. These APIs are published as Web services, and can used by multiple applications and services for various purposes. We also conduct an experimental evaluation with actual subjects, to confirm the usefulness of services with receipt log.
