We're the online tip jar. It only takes a few minutes to create an account and start collecting tips. You'll have a clean and professional 'tip card' which you can share with your clients and supporters.
Your tippers have a simple 1-click payment flow. They can use Credit Card, PayPal, Apple Pay, and more. Tips go instantly into your bank account or PayPal. You'll receive access to your tipper's name, email address, and payment data, which you can download and export whenever you want.
Tip Top Jar's goal is to make sure you receive 100% of your intended tip. When a supporter sends a tip, we ask if they'd like to cover any associated payment processing fees — 98% of the time they are happy to do so. When they do this, it means Tip Top Jar is completely free for you.
Nope. There are no thresholds or minimum tip requirements to use Tip Top Jar. If you receive numerous tips a day, or just once every few weeks, you're welcome to use our service.
You'll receive a unique URL which you can share with your supporters. On your dashboard we also provide you with a QR code that you can share online or via print. Tippers simply scan the QR code and are taken straight to your tip page.
Anyone who wants to receive tips. Youtubers, street-performers, hairdressers, writers, developers, the list is endless. Tip Top Jar is continuing to expand who we serve and are even trialing with restaurants using us as a cashless tipping alternative.
Usernames are how tippers find you. If your preferred username is unavailable or taken by an inactive user, let us know and we'll do our best to get it transferred over to you.
