How The New Cashless Tipping App Works

3 min readDec 30, 2021


The concept of ‘tip jars’ is pretty dated. Instagram photos start to show up TackPay logo rather than the typical coffee cup. It’s because these days people don’t carry as much cash with them, and tip jars aren’t mainstream enough to use. A sad trend that needs to be changed. That’s why we’ve created TackPay.

What is a tip jar?

A tip jar is a container in which customers can place money as a tip for employees of the business. Tip jars are typically located at cash registers or near the checkout counter, where customers can easily see them. They are generally used by industries that provide personal services and often have fluctuating prices. The term “tip jar” is believed to have originated in the 19th century when bartenders would keep their tips in jars on the counter near their register. They are still used today by businesses that offer personal services including restaurants, hairdressers, and taxi drivers.

Why the ‘tip jar’ is outdated

In a world where cash is becoming obsolete and credit cards rule, many small businesses are turning to digital tipping solutions that allow customers to leave a tip in the same way they would with a credit card. It’s easier for both the customer and the business owner.

How TackPay works

The new app called TackPay allows users to tip anyone in the world using any method of payment. It’s simple, flexible, and secure. The ‘tip jar’ is an outdated way of thinking about tipping. It forces customers to physically hand over money to their servers instead of empowering them with a safe and secure way to tip remotely. TackPay solves this issue by allowing the user to tip in any currency or method of payment they want with the push of a button. There is no need for cash tips anymore! A restaurant, bar, cafe, or any business can sign up for TackPay with just a few clicks of the button. Staff will be able to accept tips via credit card, debit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay etc. The next time you go out to eat at your favorite restaurant, don’t forget your phone!

How TackPay is better than a ‘tip jar’

TackPay is a free app that allows customers to tip their favorite businesses with the click of a button. Business owners can also collect tips from customers, automate the collection process and instantly transfer money to employees using the app. The app removes the complexity and the costs of collecting cash tips (Why should businesses have to pay costly credit card fees for processing tips?)and provides a solution for business owners who want to allow their customers to tip in a simple and easy way.

Have you ever left a tip in a ‘tip jar’ but then felt guilty that no one actually got the money?

With TackPay, we guarantee that 100% of tips go directly to the employee. You can even send multiple tips at once to several staff members thanks to the splitting features.

TackPay is also a great solution for people who don’t know how much to tip. Rather than awkwardly not tipping at all, which can make you look cheap or even insult your server, TackPay allows you to set a default tip percentage for your entire bill. Of course, TackPay also gives users the option to enter an amount they want to tip in dollars and cents… so, enjoy your meal rather than worry about calculating tips.


There’s no denying that tipping can be a hassle. It’s confusing, stressful, and unfair for the people who work hard to earn their tips. But TackPay-based tipping could go a long way in alleviating many of these problems. By streamlining the process, tipping becomes more intuitive, fair, and focused on the quality of service provided.
