Credit Card Tip Jars

This Tip Jar Allows Credit Card Users to Make a Donation as Well

— February 3, 2014 — Business
The tip jar is a time honored tradition at various establishments to honor outstanding service. Unfortunately today's consumer is less likely to carry around cash than in previous years. Just because it's plastic over paper for most nowadays doesn't mean that tips have gone by the wayside.

The Dipjar is a tip jar with a built-in credit card swiper. The swiper takes out a dollar per swipe so if one would like to give more money, it's entirely possible. The dollar amount is set so that restaurant owners cannot go in and change the amount for their stores.

The body of the Dipjar is made of aluminum while the top is made of plastic. This tip jar also has a built-in function for tracking the times of transactions and the speed for easy distribution among employees.
Trend Themes
1. Contactless Payment Tip Jars - Opportunity for businesses to incorporate contactless payment technology into their tip jars, allowing customers to easily leave tips without cash.
2. Transparent Tip Tracking - Innovative tip jars with built-in tracking capabilities for recording transactions and distributing tips among employees in a fair and transparent way.
3. Enhanced Customer Convenience - Offering customers the convenience of easily leaving tips through credit card swipers built into tip jars, eliminating the need for cash transactions.
Industry Implications
1. Hospitality - Restaurants, cafes, and bars can adopt credit card tip jars to enhance their customer service and simplify the tipping process.
2. Retail - Retail stores with customer service counters or cash registers can implement credit card tip jars to provide a seamless tipping experience for customers.
3. Non-profit - Non-profit organizations and charity events can leverage Dipjars to accept credit card donations and encourage generous contributions.
