Running a Cost Breakdown report

The procedure below describes how to run a Cost Breakdown report. You can only run this report for restaurants that use the interchange plus pricing model for credit card processing fees. Your pricing model is listed on your Toast contract.

You can view an aggregated Cost Breakdown report for multiple restaurants. The more restaurants you select to view in the report, the longer the report will take to run due to the large amount of payments data. For example, the loading time for one restaurant location is approximately 3 to 4 seconds while the loading time for 50 to 100 locations is approximately 1 minute.

To run a Cost Breakdown report

  1. Log in to the Toast administration back-end.

  2. Use the Switch Restaurant menu to switch to a restaurant you want to view a Cost Breakdown report for. This restaurant must be using the interchange plus pricing model. If you need to run the report for multiple interchange plus restaurants, you can add them to the Cost Breakdown report in step 6 below.

  3. Select Toast Reporting Essentials from the Analytics & Reports section.

  4. In the left rail, select Finance, then select Deposit Totals Overview.

  5. From the date range menu, choose Last Month or select Custom Date and specify a date range that includes entire months.

  6. If you want to add more restaurants to the Cost Breakdown report, choose them from the restaurant hierarchy menu.

  7. Select Update to run the report.

  8. Select the Cost Breakdown tab. Alternatively, you can select one of the links in the Rate column of the Visa/Mastercard/Discover table in the Deposit Totals Overview report to go to the Cost Breakdown tab.

    See Cost Breakdown Report tables for descriptions of the tables you see in the Cost Breakdown report.
