Tipping is an important part of American and Canadian life. Enabling your clients to leave a tip increases client satisfaction and also provides an important source of additional income for your sitters.

While it has always been possible to leave a tip when a client books services in their online account, it is now possible for clients to leave a tip when paying for services with debit/credit cards or ACH.

This introduces another important opportunity to offer your clients the opportunity to tip and ultimately will further increase tip payments to your staff.

Clients can also leave notes to say who they would like their tip to go to.
