Back Bar Fees

Back bar fees are charges incurred by a stylist or employee for using products at a salon or business. MyTime allows these fees to be deducted from staff compensation to cover the cost of supplies to perform specific services at your business. Back bar fees can be set at the location-service level or employee-service level. 

Things to know:

  • Back bar set at the employee level:
    • Backbar fee at the employee level is set via compensation by service model in employee profiles.
    • If set at the individual employee level, the back bar fee will be taken out after commissions are calculated.
    • The back bar fee will appear in the Compensation reports under the Backbar Fees column.
  • Back bar set at the service level:
    • Back bar fees can be set for all or selected services.
    • This applies to all employees
    • Each service can only have one back bar fee per location.
    • You cannot configure both post-commission and pre-commission back bar fees for the same service in the same location.
    • The back bar fee at the service level is set via the services menu page. 
    • If set at the service level, you can choose whether to calculate the back bar fee before or after the service commission rate is applied.
    • If pre-commission, the fee will appear in the Compensation reports under the Pre-commission Back Bar Fees column.
    • If post-commission, the fee will appear in the Compensation reports under the Back Bar Fees column.
