Transacting with a Yoco Card Machine

How to activate tips

Enabling the tipping feature allows you to add a gratuity to a bill based on a percentage of the total or an added Rand value.

There are three options available when setting up tips.

  • Ask for amount tendered (tips) on card payments: With the option enabled, when processing card payments, the app will ask how much you want to charge to that card. Enabling this is the easiest way to accept tips on card transactions.
  • Show an add tip button above the bill: This option allows you to manually add a percent or amount tip to a bill before starting payments.
  • Ask for tip on card machine: With this option enabled, your Yoco card machine will ask your customers if they would like to add a tip to their purchase before inserting their card.
