< Service Attributes < Default Compensation

Pet Sitter Plus provides employers with a means to calculate staff pay on a fixed or variable compensation amount for each service they perform. 

 

The compensation amount can:

  • vary according to the type of service.

  • either be a fixed amount or a percentage of the charge rate.

  • vary according to a number of other factors such as the time of day that the service is performed. For more information about variable compensation amounts see Compensation Conditions.

ON DESKTOP:

Navigate to Admin > Services > Service Items

STEP 1

How do I set a default compensation amount?

  • Click on the service item you wish to edit.

STEP 2​​

Decide which method suits you best. Either:

  • To pay a fixed amount (for example) 10.00. Do not use a currency prefix such as $ or £. Numbers should have two decimal places, OR

  • To pay a percentage, eg. 50%. If using a percentage, the amount of compensation will be calculated as a percentage of the value set in the default charge.

  • Click in the Default Compensation option and type in the amount.

  • Click "Update" to save.

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