Payment Processing Fees

TiPJAR exists to help tipped workers earn more, and help customers tip when they don't have cash.

We partner with a range of providers to process tip payments. Depending on which partner processes your tip, we may be charged a fee by the processor before we receive the funds. TiPJAR doesn't get this money. It goes to the credit card companies and banks who process the payment.

When we can, we provide tipping customers the option to increase their tip by this amount, so that the recipient receives exactly the intended tip. 97.8% of our customers do this.

We constantly work to reduce these costs, and the more people use TiPJAR the lower rates we'll be able to achieve.

Please note: All costs quoted below can be subject to change at short notice, so please check back regularly.
