Understanding the Payment Types Report
The Payment Types visualization will be displayed as a pie chart. Keep the following in mind as you view the chart:
- Use the drop-down menu on the left side to toggle between the metrics you chose.
- To isolate payment or promotion types, click on the colored bubbles next to the ones you'd like to remove from the chart.
The table version of the Payment Types report will list out all payments, promotions, and payables. Payables includes items you collect payment on but are expected to pay out, such as Service Charges or Taxes, that should not be considered Revenue.
- Click on the payment type name, which is hyperlinked and highlighted in blue, to find all of the checks associated with a certain payment type.
Taxes in the Payments Reports
At the bottom of your Payments Report, under Payables, you will find a listing of all your Tax Types as setup in your POS. You can collapse or Expand Tax Types to view how much you collected in each type of tax.
In House Guests vs OutsideGuests
If looking to identify the volume or incremental spend of in-house guests (guests staying in on-site lodging), the Payment Types report will allow you to see which guests used in-house charges, such as Room Charge or House Account.
If an in-house guest pays with cash or card, however, the only way to filter out that information would be to add a proactive measure - such as an order type, that servers could enter when they discover an in-house guest.
If you have tax-exempt items set up in your POS, you can view all the checks that have ordered a tax-exempt item using our Check Search tool. Scroll down to the Tax Amount box, enter equal to 0 and Go. This will bring up all the checks in your specified time period that have Tax = $0. Learn more about Check Search here.
If you would like to view tax exempt items in an item sales report, either create a Category within your POS that brings them together or use Avero to create a Custom Category. Learn more about Custom Categories here.
