Whether you're selling coffee at your bookstore or spa services at your beauty shop, tipping is likely an important part of your business. Tips are not only a great way to gather tangible, on-the-spot feedback from customers, but they also reward employees for outstanding service.
That’s why we’re announcing Tips for Shopify POS, a new feature that makes it simple for merchants to accept tips with any Shopify card reader.
Get Immediate Feedback From Customers
One of our most requested features, Tips for Shopify POS allows customers to offer immediate feedback during their visit to your store. With tips, it’s easier for customers to recognize and reward a positive experience with your business — which also builds loyalty.

The feature’s seamless interface makes it simple for customers to leave just the right amount to express their satisfaction. The feature is also integrated right into the checkout process, so customers can add a tip as a percentage of their purchase or leave a set dollar amount.
And starting today, merchants can enable Tips for Shopify POS to use with Shopify card readers.
Reward Employees For Great Customer Service
The feature isn’t just a benefit to customers, it also provides employees with a built-in incentive to provide stellar service. Tips are a time-tested method to reward retail staff for a job well done. Better customer service can lead to better tips — a win-win for customers, employees, and business owners.
Tips for Shopify POS also offers real-time tracking for retail tips. Reports make it easy for merchants to pay out staff for tips they earned during a shift, keep tip records for tax purposes, and more. Retailers can also use this real-time info to further reward employees for outstanding service and make other data-driven decisions to run your business.

At Shopify, we’re dedicated to creating one platform to meet all of your selling needs. That includes businesses likes cafes, spas, salons and other service-based businesses. And now, it’s easier than ever for in-person sellers to accept tips for their services.
