Cashless Restaurant Tip: Why It’s The Future Of Tipping & How You Can Start

Every waiter would love to come home every shift having earned a bunch of cash money in tips. And we know you are probably thinking about how you can use your phone for tipping. At TackPay, we’re ready for this mindset shift and we want to show you why it makes a lot of sense to pay and receive the tip with your device.

Cash is slow and we have a better way

In a world where everything is going cashless, we think it’s time to go cashless when it comes to tipping as well. We’ve tried this system of “cashless” tipping in the past and it has worked really well for us and our staff.

What is cashless tipping?

Cashless tipping is a new way of tipping your server at a restaurant. Rather than pulling out your wallet or purse, you can simply add the tip to your credit card directly from your phone. This means that the transaction time is significantly reduced, there are fewer bills to count and everyone gets paid faster. It’s also better for business owners because when you tip with cash you run the risk of leaving money behind or accidentally giving too much, and most importantly, with TackPay, tips go directly to staff without going through company books.

How do I tip cashless?

All you need to do is to scan the QR code and add an amount that you want to tip (usually 20%). The server will have a TackPay account which will process the payment. You can then leave the restaurant knowing that your tip was processed correctly and safely!

Providing a superior experience to guests

The no-cash tipping trend has been picking up steam, thanks to an increasing push from restaurants that seek to provide superior experiences to guests. Tipping is a controversial subject. It’s an unfortunate reality that many servers, bartenders, and other hospitality professionals rely on tips as part of their overall income. However, these professionals are often tempted to prioritize customer service over profit margins in order to secure larger tips. They work with the expectation that they will receive additional compensation for their efforts, but if they overstep their boundaries, they can be punished by customers who will simply take their business elsewhere.


The advantages of cashless tips are clear. It’s a convenient alternative for all involved — the customer, the business, and the server.
