Digital ‘Tip Jar’ Lets Customers Leave Change With A Credit Card
DipJar is being piloted in some NYC coffee shops, where people just need to ‘dip’ their card in the scanner to leave a small amount without the need for cash.
‘DipJar‘ is an electronic tip jar that a number of coffee shops in NYC are piloting. As more and more people are paying with credit cards, tips for baristas are dropping, so Ryder Kessler decided to update tipping technology so customers who don’t carry cash can still show their appreciation for good service. The coffee shop can determine a preset tip amount and display it on the jar, and customers just need to ‘dip’ their card to leave a small tip, making the process more convenient.
