The majority of table booking systems operate on a commission basis. You pay a low monthly fee and then a 20% charge per cover or booking. While it may seem obvious, we’re here to tell you why a commission free table booking system is your best option whether you are a pub, restaurant or café.
Transparent, Upfront Fees
With Sugarvine Tables, you know what you’re getting: a £58.25 per month charge for our online table booking system. That’s it. No commission, no extra fees.
That means you can plan and account for our fees up front, an invaluable asset for hospitality venues.
If monthly fees aren’t for you then there’s also the option to pay for our booking system at the yearly rate of £699. Either way, whether you pay a one off fee or a monthly fee that’s your outgoings on online bookings done, dusted and dealt with in one great value swoop.
No Hidden Bills
No one likes a hidden bill and thanks to our commission free table booking system, you won’t get any.
With most booking systems charging a high commission charge, restaurants can be left with unexpected, high bills. Although you may only pay a low monthly fee for some online booking systems, high commission charges can result in £200-£300 extra cover charges per month. And, as we all know, hospitality is an incredibly busy industry with little time to be working out commission fees as you go. Therefore, these bills can unexpectedly rack up in busy periods leaving restauranteurs and pub managers paying way too much for online booking.
