Rosa’s Thai co-founder Alex Moore and BrewDog’s retail director James Brown are to launch a new venture that they say will ‘revolutionise the world of tipping’.

TiPJAR is designed as a cashless, peer-to-peer tipping system where customers can transfer gratuity to staff members directly using their phones.

As well as making it easier for diners to tip their server in an increasingly cashless society, TiPJAR is also meant to aid workers with the management of their tips.

Using a QR code that they can scan on their phone, diners will be able to pay gratuity directly into their server’s TiPJAR account using a credit or debit card. 

Moore and Brown, who are preparing to take the product to market in the coming weeks, are also currently pursuing options that will allow diners to pay through Apple/Android Pay.

“We designed TiPJAR to shake-up the world of tipping and help tipped workers earn more,” says Brown.

“Businesses should not be afraid we are here to be a service provider and help you ensure they are rewarded for looking after your customers, we believe we can help your best team members stay longer, encourage best practice by allowing the team to tip each other and grow a restaurants, bar or cafes top line.”

Earlier this year it was announced that the Government’s plan to ban restaurants from deducting a percentage from staff tips, an ongoing area of scrutiny within the industry, will not be enforced​ until at least later this year.
