How to add a tip feature to Shopify?

  1. Install Tip Jar
  2. Include the widget in your theme where you want it to show
  3. Now customers have an option to add a tip / gratuity to their order

Key features:

  • Easily customize the widget in the app
  • Edit tip amounts, button placement and behavior
  • Also functions as a donation button

Shopify now has the option to accept tips in the Checkout payment page. If you’d like that, go to Settings > Checkout to enable it. If you’d like anywhere else on your site, Tip Jar is the way to go.

Why we built this app

We built this app so customers can add gratuity / tips to their order.

The 2 developers on this project, Burak and I, have a background in the service industry and have friends and family suffering from the 2020 lockdown of businesses in the service industry.

We wanted to help. ✊

We’re not scientists, but we’re technological problem solvers and saw an opportunity to help these businesses and their team.

Who is this app for?

If you’re a business doing delivery, curbside pickup, or in the service industry, this app help can help support tipped employees.

Some businesses we’re seeing use it already:

  • Cafes and bakeries
  • Breweries, wineries, and liquor stores
  • Farmer’s markets
  • Restaurants
  • Service businesses
  • Retail stores

What does the tipping option look like?

Here’s an example on a cart page:
