Charges allow you to add non-sales revenue items to an order, such as a delivery charge, membership fee, bottle deposit, or another miscellaneous fee. You can manually add charges to a guest check, or you can assign a charge to an order mode, such as takeout or delivery, which will cause the system to automatically add the charge every time you select the order mode. A Charges button appears on the payment screen to enable you to manually add a charge to a guest check.

NCR Silver Pro Restaurant reports charges on the Store Summary report as a separate line item and outside of the net sales calculation.

With charges, NCR Silver Pro Restaurant adds two new access levels. One, ‘Charges,’ controls which users can access the Charges page in Silver Back Office, and the other, ‘Add Charge to a Ticket,’ controls which users can manually add a charge to a guest check. Review your user roles to ensure the appropriate access levels are assigned.

Regarding charges:
  • You can price charges in one of three ways: a defined flat amount, a prompt for price, or as a percentage of the ticket subtotal.
  • Charges appear as a line item on the guest check.
  • You must assign a tax category to a charge.
  • You can deactivate a charge without deleting it.
  • You can add manually add a charge to a guest check and adjust the quantity of the charge. For example, if you require a bottle deposit on growlers and a customer orders three, you can add the bottle deposit charge and increase the quantity to ‘3.’
  • Upon adding a charge to a ticket, the system considers the charge finalized. If you remove a charge, the system considers the action a void. If the removed charge was percentage based, the voided amount reflects the charge at the time of the void.
  • When multiple charges appear on a guest check, the system ignores the other charges when calculating a percentage based charge.
  • You can apply an item level discount to a charge, but you cannot apply a ticket level discount to a charge.
  • You can identify a charge as ‘House Account,’ which allows the charge to be used for house account payments at the POS.

Configuring Charges

You configure charges in Silver Back Office. A checkmark underneath the active column indicates whether the charge is active or not.
