Apple Pay Suica Paper Receipts

Apple Pay Suica is very convenient but what if you need a paper trail? You have Suica store purchase paper receipts of course but no paper record of transit receipts that you might need for company travel expense reports. There are three options.

Option #1 Wallet
Wallet keeps a simple list of the most recent Suica transactions. The only way to print this is the old take a screen shot method but this is limited and might not be enough for your needs. There is also the problem that the Suica transaction record is lost when Suica is removed from Wallet by: manually removing it, turning off passcode, or remotely removing Apple Pay cards for the device via your iCloud account. The Suica transaction record is not really lost: it still lives on the cloud but is wiped from the local device.

Option #2 Suica App
Suica App has a record of recent transactions (30 days) found by tapping transaction history in the bottom menu or tapping SF in the Ticket Purchase/Suica Management section. Suica App updates the SF transaction list every 24 hours so you will not see your most recent daily purchases shown in Wallet.

Suica App has the added benefit of keeping recent transaction records accessible even if the Suica card is removed from Wallet and re-added, or transferred to another device.

Option #3 Mobile Suica web
If options 1 and 2 of are not what you need there is a 3rd option. It is the best one. The Mobile Suica system keeps a 26 week record of card transactions as long as the card exists on Mobile Suica. The only way to truly delete an Apple Pay Suica/Mobile Suica card from the system forever is to get a Suica Refund.

To access the full transaction record for the Suica card, go to the Mobile Suica site and log in with your Mobile Suica/Suica App ID and password. Be careful if you have linked your Mobile Suica/Suica App account with My JR-East. If so, you must sign in with your My JR-East ID and password in the separate My JR-East login section, otherwise you cannot get in.

Mobile Suica web has login windows for Mobile Suica ID and My JR-East ID

Once you are in you will see the main menu as shown in the screen shot below. The Suica section in the middle has a SF transaction list button on the left. This is exactly the same as the one in Suica App expect that Mobile Suica web gives you a simple date pop-up for setting a start date. The print out is a PDF file. One benefit of Mobile Suica web is that it archives the entire Suica Recharge and ticket purchase history of your Mobile Suica account.

The right hand button highlighted in red below is for printing ticket receipts. You have pull down search dates and pop-up filter menu to find the date range and kind of ticket purchase: commuter pass, Suica Green seat tickets, Suica Shinkansen Express tickets or SF Charge.

The Suica Transactions menu brings up a list of the most recent 100 transactions that you can output and save as a PDF. Suica Receipts has the full 26 week list of transactions (the limit of the Suica card format) that you can search, select, and print out individual receipts for.
