The ultimate guide to earning more contactless tips
In this cashless age, with 80% of all tips being contactless, it is imperative that all businesses allow their customers to tip cashless or fear missing out. EasyTip is the perfect solution to this shift and ensures all members of staff receive the tips that they deserve with their contactless tipping platform.
Here is our ultimate guide to how you can earn more tips through contactless tipping!
1. Give customers full transparency on their contactless tips
EasyTip is a leading platform that allows customers to digitally send contactless tips to staff directly. 64% of the UK population said that they do not feel comfortable leaving contactless tips because they can’t guarantee that their tip will go to their chosen recipient. With EasyTip’s contactless tipping platform, customers have full transparency and can guarantee their tip is going to exactly who they want it to go to. Each member of staff has their own tipping profile including their name and photo so customers can feel secure in tipping the staff member that they wish to thank.This level of transparency is imperative to earning more contactless tips.
2. Make giving a contactless tip easy
EasyTip cuts out the middleman to ensure all workers get full contactless tips instantly. It’s quick and simple for customers to show their appreciation, making them more willing to leave contactless tips. In fact, staff members are seeing a huge increase of up to 30% more tips after signing up to EasyTip’s contactless tipping platform. In order to leave contactless tips, customers only need a mobile phone or tablet to send tips directly to their chosen recipient. The process can be completed in as little as 3 seconds.
3. Display merchandise with a contactless tipping QR code
EasyTip provides all clients with bespoke merchandise to suit their brand. The merchandise is positioned at key points around the business to kindly encourage customers to leave a contactless tip, if they desire, by simply scanning the QR code. EasyTip provides both cards and stickers and in order to utilise them effectively it is important to display them in key places.
Some examples of useful placements for salons include: on the work stations mirrors, at the payment counter and reception waiting areas. QR stickers on mirrors double customers’ likelihood to tip because it is a constant polite reminder to say an extra thank you for the treatment they are receiving. Similarly, for restaurants, hotels and other businesses, some key places might include: the reception desk, the bar, tables and guest bedrooms.
4. Print a contactless tipping QR code on customer receipts
There is also an option to print the contactless tipping QR code directly on receipts. Customers are twice as likely to tip.This method is a great way to earn more tips because it allows the customer to reflect on their experience and leave a tip from the comfort of their home if they don’t initially decide to tip.
5. Let your customers know that they can leave contactless tips
It is important to let your clients know that you accept contactless tips. One of the most effective ways to do so is to make an announcement on your social media pages. An increase in awareness has a direct impact on increasing your tips.
