We all love going to restaurants. There is something about it; great food, the chats with the wine connoisseur, the smiling wait-staff that is always there to make you feel at home. This is why you want to reward great service whenever possible.
This takes us to our million-dollar debate. Cash versus Contactless tipping, which is better?
The real problem with Cash Tipping
You know the drill; it is a fancy restaurant and you typically carry cash beforehand to tip the staff. But what about all the other workers, who rely on tips as a source of income. Food Delivery drivers, Buskers, Taxi drivers, Valets, tour guides often miss out on tips because people don’t have cash in hand.
It is estimated that a large number of workers miss out on tips because close to 60 % millennials do not carry cash these days.
- Cash is slowly losing it’s lustre with investments in cashless payments solutions and crypto-currency on the rise. Tech pioneers like Elon Musk investing billions in bitcoins is a sign of things to change rapidly.
- Customer confidence in tipping is at an all-time low with allegations of large corporations using service charges for their own benefit.
- Hospitality sector workers these days prefer that the tip money goes directly in their bank account.
- Business owners constantly struggle with the admin burden, tax compliance and time required to manage tips at a facility.
A Case for Contactless Tipping
We all know about contactless tipping via credit cards which literally has become a life-line amidst the pandemic. The demand and adoption of contactless payment solutions is growing at an unprecedented pace.
Moreover, the next generation favouring Mobile phones payments over Credit cards makes a strong case for Contactless Tipping in the hospitality sector.
How does an ideal Contactless Tipping solution work?
An ideal cashless tipping solution should allow instant, contactless transfer of gratuity directly to a beneficiary’s bank account. This should enable a customer to tip a wait staff, hairdresser, delivery driver etc. without even having to go through a sign-up process.
Benefits of Contactless Tipping over Cash Tipping

- The money goes straight into the worker’s bank account this ensures the staff gets paid on a daily basis.
