You can record wastage in the Bustle Till iPad app and then view the value and item breakdown in the Sales report on your Bustle Hub. 

Why is my wastage button disabled?

Wastage in Bustle is recorded as a separate action from how you manage an existing tab or table. Please follow the process below to enable the Wastage button and record your items.

How to record wastage (more in video below)

1. Deal with any existing customer tab/table or transaction first by noting the items for wastage, then voiding or refunding any items you will be placing on wastage (in this case the Small Latte has been voided).

2. Once that's done - Start a new order and add the item/s to record as wastage to it.

3. Swipe the Pay button left, two times to reveal the Wastage and Hospo buttons

4. Press the Wastage button, then OK

Report on wastage

  • View high level totals for Wastage in the Sales Transaction Summary report under on your Bustle Hub.

  • View your wastage totals down to item level in the Hospo Wastage Refunds report on your Bustle Hub.

  • View wastage totals by staff member by using the Staff Sales Summary report.
