My business is providing prepackaged meals delivered locally. Orders and payments are all online. I need to find a way for customers to pay for a delivery driver tip with their online order (USA based company). There used to be an app that I was planning on using when ready but it's now not available. It was Tipslite. This is holding up the opening of my business.
I would prefer a solution where there is a field in the checkout page that allows them the abiltiy to enter an amount (or percentage) for the tip. But after my research I'm not finding anything. I am open to all suggestions at this point. I'm looking for the most cost effective and fast way to impliment this. Thank you!!
Hi there Michelle!
Don here from Shopify. :)
Thanks for taking the time to post here and to outline your requirements so clearly.
I had a look for any apps that might handle adding a tip or gratuity to orders made online in your store and the only result I have been able to find is Autoadd by Brickspace Lab.
As with any third-party apps in our store, you can reach out to the app developers using the contact info listed there with any support questions you might have.
An alternative might be to use an up-selling app to create a 'tip product' that your customers could choose to add to their order if they wish to add a gratuity for their driver.
This would allow them to select to add a product valued at, say, $1, $2, $5 or whatever increments you would like to create.
As with the above app, you would need to talk to the developers themselves to confirm exactly how this might work for their apps.
I think the fastest way to get this put in place would probably be to use the Autoadd app; though one of the others might prove to be more cost-effective over time, so I would do some research if I were you to find the best solution for your business needs.
We're also available 24/7 via our support site any time you have Shopify-related questions. :)
All the best!
@Michelle_Griffi did you ever end up making a solution for this?
If not, my team and I built an app called Tip Jar: apps.shopify.com/tip-jar-app. It lets you add a tip feature to your site with customizable design and tip options. It's pretty fun to use :)
My team and I recently created TipGenius, a simple tipping pop-up app for your Shopify store checkout and we are the Staff Pick this week!
With TipGenius, when a customer clicks your checkout button, a pop-up window gently asks if they would like to add a tip.
The call-to-action and tip amounts are customizable. If your customer has already added a tip they will not be prompted again.
With TipGenius, your customers can...
