Where did you buy it? I have bought most of my kit from London Camera Exchange and they are always happy to send me a copy of the receipt in a PDF file, which Oly are happy with.

Hi,

I have never had to supply receipts when I registered a Camera or a Lens.
I believe you have to provide proof of purchase if you make a claim.

I don't remember being asked for a copy of the receipt on registering either. Good prompt actually as the last time I looked only half my kit was registered!

FWIW - I used to have to scan receipts for expenses on a flat bed - slow and boring. Times moved on and I discovered that a quick photograph with my iPhone was just as acceptable.
Now I use an app called Scanable that automatically "finds" and photographs the receipt then perspective corrects it and improves the contrast to make it readable and makes multiples into a PDF.
Worth it just to capture receipts for things on thermal paper which fades over time.

If you can't scan it you can always take a picture with your new camera for safekeeping
