Thanks for the feedback. We have not heard many requests for a tipping feature up to this point as most of our customers sell only retail merchandise. I assume the tipping feature would be helpful with the services your business offers. We will definitely prioritize this in our future roadmap.
Whole thread on this can be found here: http://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/ecommerce-design/t/adding-gratuity-116480
Here's the tut Tetchi created to go along with it: http://www.tetchi.ca/shopify-tutorial-adding-a-tip-or-donation-to-the-cart-page/
I'm working on implementing it as well - wish me luck!
I run a coffee shop and retail space for local products and use shopify because it allows us to have unique vendors, our customers want to tip after swiping their card (like in Square), I have read the thread on adding tips to the shopping cart but that doesn't really work for POS since it is really awkward to have to ask customers if they want to tip and how much before swiping their card (oh, and could you make that a round number please..) We would really appreciate a gratuity solution for POS---thanks!
Hi, I run a Micro Brewery just outside of ottawa and we have just opened up a restaurant. We moved from Square to keep our local concept throughout the whole business and love using shopify. My staff however are rather upset that they cannot be effectively tipped on CC transactions. Please make this update!
