How can I deduct a back bar fee for my services?

This article shows you how to deduct a back bar fee for your services before calculating commissions for your staff members.

Mangomint supports both pre and post commission deductions. Both of these can also be set up as a percentage or a flat dollar amount.

To adjust these settings, go to: Settings (Gear Icon) > Services

  • Select the service and tap on Edit.

  • Tap on Additional Options.

  • Enter a Pre or Post Commission and Save.

Calculating the Back Bar Fee

Let us use these values as an example:

Service Price: $100

Staff Member Commission: 50%

Pre-Commission Deduction

This deduction gets taken out before the commission gets calculated.

By using the values above, a $5 pre-commission deduction would result in a $47.50 staff commission.

  • $100 service price less $5 back bar fee = $95

  • 50% commission on $95 = $47.50

Post-Commission Deduction

This deduction gets taken out after the commission gets calculated.

By using the values above, a $5 post-commission deduction would result in a $45.00 staff commission.

  • 50% commission on $100 service price = $50

  • $50 less $5 back bar fee = $45.00

Payroll Report

If any pre or post deduction is set up, you can review this in the payroll report with the detailed option enabled.
