Are you missing out on tips driving for a rideshare?
Rideshares provide a great service for both the drivers and the riders. It offers a way for people to work their own hours and helps people get around without needing to drive. It’s truly a win-win situation.
However, there have been problems when it comes to tipping. Drivers are often left short-changed because there aren’t easy ways for riders to leave tips. Sometimes they can tip through the rideshare app, however it may not ask them to tip until days after their ride when they open the app again. And the question of “how much of the tip do they actually get?” always arises.
In a 2019 study done by the National Bureau of Economic Research, researchers found that only 1% of riders always tip, and the rest tip only 25% of the time they ride. 60% of people never tip after their rides and in total, only about 16% of rides are tipped. That means for most of the rides that they do, drivers are seeing few, if any, tips.
Why is that? It could be for a variety of reasons. Because you pay through your phone, it is less face-to-face interaction when paying. Out of sight, out of mind, particularly when the option to tip only comes after you’ve completed your ride.
TiPJAR wants to change this pattern of tipping by putting the power back into the hands of the driver. Displaying your unique QR code allows riders to scan and tip within just a few moments. Instead of waiting, riders can tip you in the moment and without delays. Without a rideshare middleman, the money goes directly from the rider to your TiPJAR account. Think of TiPJAR as the rideshare for the tip, going from point A (the rider) to point B (your bank account). It’s a free ride every time, and we guarantee 100% of the tip gets to its final destination safely.
Now you can accept cashless tips after the ride and in the moment with TiPJAR! What are you waiting for? Sign up for your free personal account today.
