Now You Can Leave Tips Using Your Credit Card with DipJar

While most sit-down restaurants offer a way to add on a tip when you sign the credit card slip, It’s a bit of a hassle to have to fish for some loose change or bills in your wallet after paying for a cup of coffee or snacks using your credit card. But if DipJar gets traction, then you might soon be able to leave tips simply by ‘dipping’ your card into the jar.

DipjarDipJar is an electronic jar of sorts that has been programmed to charge you $1 every time you dip your card into it. So if you want to leave a $5 tip, you’re going have to swipe your card five times, so that might sound taxing. But really, how tiring is it to have to dip your card five times into the slot? I’d imagine not very much – though it might wear out the stripe on your card faster.

Dipjar

The DipJar is currently being tested for use in coffee shops, restaurants, cafes, and every other establishment out there that accepts tips. You can contact the crew behind it if you want to get a DipJar for your own establishment. All you have to do is tell them a bit about your store and location and sign up on their site. If they like you, they’ll send you a DipJar so you can start collecting tips electronically.
