Paying credit card tips out in cash?
We have run into a seriously problem due to the fact that 90% of our customers pay with a credit card. We normally pay credit card tips out at the end of the night in cash but now there is not enough cash coming in to do this. We end up pulling cash from our petty cash box to cover them but that is screwing up our EOD Aloha reports so it makes it look like there is a shortage every day and then trying to rebuild the box becomes a nightmare.
Aside from putting their credit card tips in their paychecks and just letting them take home their cash tips, does anyone else do anything else or have any better suggestions? My staff will flip if we start doing it in their paychecks once a week instead of being able to take them home daily.
