How to Add Tips, Bonus, Reimbursements, or Drive Time

Modified on Fri, 20 Oct 2023 at 12:19 PM



Many companies have a tip or reimbursement policy for employees working events. With Nowsta, those can be accounted for on a shift-by-shift basis in the Time & Attendance section.




Be mindful that if you're adding shifts, tips, bonuses, reimbursements, or drive time after the pay period has ended, these won't be accounted for on any reports you've already created. If you'd like to see the updated totals for that pay period, simply create a new report after you've made the additions.


Another thing to keep in mind is that additional payouts only appear in Payroll CSV and Payroll Integration reports if you select the additional pay breakdown view shown below.


How to add additional payout:


  1. Simply, select the employee's shift to add a tip, bonus, reimbursement, or drive time.

2. As you select the worker's earnings amount which can be found below their hourly rate for the shift, the additional payout section will be revealed in a pop-out window.


3. Select the appropriate field for the additional payout. Enter the amount and select "Done" to apply it to this shift.
