Cashless tipping for street performance
An increase in the popularity and availability of contactless payment technology has led to a gradual decline in the use of physical cash in transactions today. The result is that, for the third year in a row, cash has represented less than half of the total volume of payments made in the UK. This growing change has the future potential to exclude those who rely on cash to make a living, including street performers and musicians.
Tiptap equips performers with a feasible method for accepting cashless tips, independently input by audience members, through a physical contactless touchpoint. The app provides users with up-to-date earnings and expenses feedback, whilst also helping to organise other aspects of street performance. By registering with Tiptap, performers can manage shows within private schemes, track potential queues in popular locations, and share promotional content with audience fanbases who have tipped through the platform.
