Companies Partner to Expand Cashless Tips and Donations

Companies Partner to Expand Cashless Tips and Donations

December 30, 2015         Written By Lynn Oldshue

Last week, KORE and DipJar announced they were partnering to make it easier for consumers to leave a cashless tip or make a charitable donation.

DipJar will be joining the KORE network so it can securely and reliably process wireless gratuity and donation payment information without using the retailer’s point of sale system.

Currently, DipJar’s electronic tip jars allow customers to insert their credit or debit cards to tip at quick service restaurants or coffee shops. The tip amount is preset–generally at $1–to make transactions fast.

In addition to working with the food service industry, charitable organizations have also started to adopt DipJar. This holiday season, DipJar partnered with the Salvation Army for its iconic bell-ringing campaign. At select locations and partner retailers in Southern California, Colorado and Wisconsin, shoppers could utilize a digital tip jar to donate at the red kettle.

“Our electronic tip jars require the highest levels of security and reliability. KORE’s network ensures that customer data and payment information is safe,” said DipJar Founder and CEO, Ryder Kessler. “We also chose the KORE network for its longstanding reputation for seamless and reliable connectivity–DipJar never has to worry about an outage.”

“In a growing cashless retail environment, DipJar is helping increase compensation for the hardworking people in the service industry, while also making it easy and convenient for consumers to make charitable donations,” said KORE CEO Alex Brisbourne.

There are currently 600 DipJars across the country, and the company plans to expand next year. KORE will allow DipJar to remotely monitor and manage their electronic jars.
