Tip Jar WP

Description

Tip Jar WP is made for creators, artists, teachers, service providers, and more. It gives an extremely simple and affordable way to accept tips on your WordPress website. On the cutting edge of payment technologies through the power of Stripe, you can accept Apple Pay, Google Pay, standard credit cards, and more with a beautiful and responsively designed payment form.

If you have supporters that love what you do, many will be happy to send a tip to say “thanks” if you give them the option to do so. With out-of-the-box features including both automatic-recurring-payments, or one-time tips, Tip Jar WP makes that possible.

It’s totally free to install. Give it a try today!

Here’s a few of the things included in Tip Jar WP:

  • Recurring payments
    Users can choose to tip once, or on a recurring basis automatically.

  • Multi-Currency
    Allow your users to pay in their own currency.

  • User dashboard
    Your users can log in to print their receipts, review their plans, or cancel their plans at any time.

  • Apple Pay
    On Apple devices that support Apple Pay, users can tip with a single tap (or “look”) with their device.

  • Google Pay
    Users of Google Chrome with saved credit cards can pay with a single tap.

  • 3D Secure and Strong Customer Authentication
    You are protected from fraudulent purchases and chargebacks via 3D Secure, and also comply with SCA regulations in the EU.

  • GDPR Compliance Considerations

  • No personal information of any kind is stored, making it both secure and more GDPR compliant right out of the box.

  • No start-up or yearly costs required
    Tip Jar WP makes money through a 1% transaction fee, so you can install it and keep it forever, without paying anything.

  • “Pay what you want for a file” mode
    Allow your users to “pay what they want” for a file download.

  • Gutenberg, Classic Editor, and Page Builder support
    Customize your payment forms using the Gutenberg Block, or the built-in shortcode manager in Classic Editor mode.

FAQ

  1. Does this include the Stripe integration for free?
    Yes. Stripe is the payment gateway that works with Tip Jar WP, and it is included for free.

  2. Are there any up-sells or extensions?
    No. Everything you will need to accept single and recurring tips is included in Tip Jar WP for free.

  3. Do I need an SSL certificate in order to use this?
    Yes. Most webhosts are now able to set this up for you at no extra cost. Ask them about “LetsEncrypt”.

  4. Is this plugin free to use?
    Tip Jar WP is totally free to install. There is a 1% transaction fee (plus Stripe fees). So we (Tip Jar WP) don’t make money until you do. That means we have your best interests in mind at all times; we aren’t successful unless you are.

  5. What about GDPR Compliance?
    This plugin stores absolutely no personally identifiable information about your users when they make a payment. No names, credit card information, IP addresses, nothing. Only emails are stored in WordPress core’s “users” table, and can be erased using WordPress’s normal erase-personal-data process. We recommend adding a note to your privacy policy stating that the only information recorded during a payment is the email address, and that all other data is handled by Stripe.com.
