With the advent of plastic, most people don't carry any more cash with them. The losers? People who depend on tips to round off their stipends. The DipJar takes care of that: dip your card into it and the system automatically takes a fixed amount (emblazoned on the front of the DipJar) to the "appreciative workers behind the counter."
For years, cash tip jars have been a staple of store counters. Customers drop in their dollar bills and loose change to show appreciation for the employees brewing their coffees or preparing their sandwiches.
But we love the convenience of paying with plastic swiping a debit or credit card is so much faster and more convenient than carrying wallets stuffed with singles and so employees lose out on the tips that help supplement their hourly wage.
Thats where DipJar comes in. Its as simple as a cash tip jar but with the technology to accept and pass along tips left with credit and debit cards.
