The team at TiPJAR claim the tipping system was “broken” before their solution went live. TiPJAR say digital tipping is the “present” rather than just the “future” and the service is apparently being used by a range of big-name brands. Credit card tip admin can be very time-consuming, and this means the service could be highly beneficial to you if you’re a business owner as well as the staff that you employ. An efficient tipping system is likely to improve morale within your business and get staff feeling more motivated and appreciated.
According to TiPJAR, the service could help you to retain and recruit the best quality staff. It may also boost team culture and harmony by delivering better transparency and building trust in your tipping system. The time freed up by switching to this tipping system could be used for improving other areas of your business. The service is described as a “peer-to-peer tipping ecosystem” by the brand, who say it takes just three seconds for a customer to leave a tip.
TiPJAR QR codes can be left in several places around your premises. Some businesses print them onto receipts, whilst others add them to posters on walls and food packaging. The company says it has a “sophisticated API”, which should mean smooth, glitch-free operation. According to the stats currently on the TiPJAR website, there are now more than 2,500 TiPJAR accounts and 135,000 users. There have been more than 170,000 TiPJAR transactions, and more than £800,000 has been given to workers as tips via the platform.
The service was first launched at the industry conference EXP101. It was given the ‘Innovation of the Year’ award at the 2020 Restaurant & Marketer Awards. High-profile brands now using TiPJAR include BrewDog, Yard Sale Pizza and Honest Burgers. TiPJAR is being used at over 750 venues across the United Kingdom.
If you’re looking for a new way to cut tip admin hours and boost morale within your workplace, TiPJAR may be the solution your business needs. It may also help you if you work individually and are seeking a smoother and more efficient way to enable customers to show their appreciation. All evidence suggests TiPJAR has a bright future ahead of it.
