  7. On the Add Royalty Setup page, you will be able to define the amount/percentage you              want to collect, the payment types you would like to include/exclude. Please make sure to        set up a frequency, set a start date and check the location(s) this applies to.







To view how much royalties you collect, please go to: ReportsRoyalty report or Royalty charges report




How are royalties calculated? 

Royalty Total = (Payment Total) – (Adjusted Excluded Payments) – (Other Exclusions)

Where Payment Total = Total revenue, sum of all payment methods,

- Adjusted Excluded Payments = Excluded Payment Methods – (Excluded Payment Methods * Tax %)

- Other Exclusions = Total Tax, Total Tips, etc.


The royalty report and royalty charges report should always match if you have the same frequency and dates selected. Both reports will not show any information if the frequency does not match what has been set up in the royalty program setup 

The royalty report is for viewing royalties only. The royalty charges report is for approving and charging the same royalties through ACH.
