How-to set up the payroll calculation

Keep records of employees' payroll in Poster. To do this, configure the staff time tracking, choose the method of paying, and view sums to pay to your employees.


The payroll calculation is available in Business and Pro tariffs only.

  1. Go to the section Settings → General.

  2. At the Management settings tick Staff time tracking.

☝️ If you don’t configure the staff time tracking, the payroll will be calculated by a fixed monthly rate, shift with at least one paid order, and percentage of personal sales.

— Personal, to account the employee % of sale;

— Per shift, to account the % of total cash shift sales.

     4. Click Save.


☝️ Assign positions to employees to payroll.
To do this, open the tab Access → Employees, add an employee or click Edit next to the employee's name. Select the position and access to the register and management console from the drop-down list.

💡 An employee payroll is calculated by the formula:

Monthly rate/number of days in the month × days worked.


For example, if an employee with fixed monthly rate $1000 had worked from February 15th to March 4th. Poster calculates the payroll as:

($1000 / 28 × 14) + ($1000 / 31 × 4) = $500 + $129,03 = $629,03.


☝️ The tab Finance → Salary appears in the management console after selecting the payroll method in the tab Access → Positions.


Monitor the time worked statistics by each employee.
