Sales tax and commissions can be a headache, but Premiere has taken all the guess work out of it and made it easy to manage.
You can be as flexible as you need to be with sales tax. Be it assigning different rates to products in the same machine or documenting different rates at a single location for different product types (Food vs. Beverage for example).
Compute your sales tax off the Gross or the Net revenue. Decide if you want a regular traditional computation of sales tax, or if you want Premiere to remove the tax first before the calculation so you do not pay tax on the tax.
Likewise with Commissions. Do you pay a percentage amount, or a flat rate each time you service your machines. Is there a monthly amount that you pay? Do certain machines at a location require a different commission type? Not a problem for Premier.
Operators can easily choose the method they want to use for their business.

To help operators maneuver and find information, Vending Essentials Premiere uses a tree view to display All Locations, Current Locations, Routes and Unlocated Machines. By expanding the items in the tree view (clicking the + sign) you can see the machines at a location, or the items in a machine. Select any item in the tree view and the detail on the right part of the screen will appear for that item.
You can use the mouse, or the arrow and tab keys, to maneuver in this window. The tree view gives you the ability to drag and drop machines from location to location, from unlocated machines to location, or from location to unlocated machines to relocate machines. Simply click on a machine you wish to move, while holding down the button on your mouse, drag that machine to the new location. If the location is not visible in the tree view, drag the machine off of the tree view window completely up to the top of the screen or down to the bottom of the screen and the tree view will detect what you have done and begin scrolling in the direction you have dragged, the farther away you drag the machine the faster the tree view will scroll.
This type of navigation allows you to see everything in your business from the "30,000 foot level," while making it easy for you to zoom down to the smallest detail.
