Using any regular old jar for tips is so 1990s! That’s why Dipjar is the future of tipping.

The electronic tip jar makes it easy to tip, even with your credit cards. To leave a tip, just dip your card into the DipJar, pull it out, and wait for the confirmation sound. Customers don’t have to only put change in there and can easily be generous using paper or plastic. Retailers looking to add Dipjar to their establishment simply need to contact Dipjar and once it’s in hand, they simply register it through this website (including telling them who’s working at the store and a bit of information about the location). Then they simply plug the DipJar into a power outlet and they can start accepting tips. DipJar is completely free, but they take a small service fee for tips processed at no cost to retailers, while collecting a significant tip for employees that would otherwise not exist.
