Just when we think there’s nothing new under the sun, along comes DipJar, the world’s first electronic tip jar. It’s perhaps an answered prayer for millions of small business owners and their employees who, thanks to an ever-increasingly cashless society, are working harder than ever before and for a whole lot less. Why?
Once a staple of smaller retail and restaurant counter-tops everywhere, today’s tip jars are not so much obsolete as they are just plain empty. Many small business owners can attest to that. It’s the unfortunate and yet oftentimes overlooked result of the consuming public’s dependence upon and love of its credit and debit cards.
Satisfied customers who once would drop a few coins or even a dollar in a tip jar in many cases have been replaced by facsimiles of their former selves, with little more to offer in return for good service than the best of intentions. And America’s hard-working, service-oriented and oftentimes hourly and gratuity-dependent counter employees are paying the price for it…literally.
DipJar to the rescue!?
Here’s how it works: Retailers request and receive DipJar free of cost. They register it through the DipJar website, plug it in and their employees can start collecting electronic tips in any and all amounts—no matter how small—easily and immediately. The company takes only a very small service fee for tips processed and at no cost to retailers.
DipJar has been piloted at a number of premier partner locations this past summer, and if all goes according to plan, there may be a few making their way to smaller retailers near you very soon.
