Calculating your driver's wage is not only complex but also time-consuming. WastePorter's Trip Pay Calculator makes your job easier now.
Basic Daily Wage
If you pay your driver a daily wage, then insert the amount under "Basic Pay". If you dont pay your driver a basic daily wage (example: commission-based), then you may leave it blank or insert as "0" (i.e. zero).
If you pay your driver a variable wage based on distance, you may turn on the "Variable Pay" option and then select "Distance" option.
If you pay your driver according to distance, then label each distance option with a name (example: Near, medium, far or whatever your deem appropriate). For this example, I pay my driver $50 if he completes a job with a travelled distance between 0 KM to 39.9 KM. I pay him $100 if he completed a job with a travelled distance between 40.0 KM to 99.9 KM, and $200 if he completes a job with a travelled distance between 100 KM to 150 KM. See below example.
You can create multiple blocks with different options for work days, job types, customers and sites by clicking on the "ADD" button.
When you have successfully set up your "distance-based wage calculation" template, the next step is to apply to any of your drivers. Please see example below.
If you pay your driver based on trip-incentive (number of trips), you may want to consider this option instead. In this example, I pay my driver incentive a base salary of $100 and a trip-incentive only for the 3rd trip onwards (example, $0 for 1st and 2nd trip). For the day, he completed 5 trips in total. Hence the system will auto-calculate as follow:
Base day wage: $100
1st & 2nd trip: $0
3rd trip: $50
4th trip: $60
5th trip: 100
(Driver take home wage for the day is $310)
