Setting Default Staff Pay for a Service

Modified on Mon, 24 Oct, 2022 at 5:54 PM

When setting up your services, you will want to set a default or standard payment for services to save time when calculating Staff Pay. This can be a fixed or variable amount, or it can be based on a percentage of the client price.

The Staff Pay amount can:
  • vary according to the type of service. You can even have some service payment at a set dollar amount and some based on percentage of the client price.
  • either be a fixed amount or a percentage of the client price.
  • vary according to a number of other factors such as the time of day that the service is performed using Staff Pay Rules.

What is a service item?
A Service Item is a description and price for a service you provide, such as dog walk, pet sit, boarding, overnight, dog training, etc. Service items create your Schedule, Service Orders, and Invoices. A Service Item that is set for a time and date is assigned to a staff member to create the schedule.

Tip: You can run a report for all Staff Pay for any date range, for the whole team or individual staff.

How Do I Set a Default Staff Pay Amount?

Step 1

Step 2

  • Enter amount in Default Staff Pay.
    • To pay a fixed amount, enter the amount (i.e. 10.00) without a currency symbol such as $ or £. Numbers should have two decimal places, OR
    • To pay a percentage, (i.e. 50%). enter the percentage with the % symbol. The staff pay will be calculated as a percentage of the value set in the "client price."
  • Click "Update."

Note: If you are a solo business, you can ignore this function and leave default staff pay set to zero.
