- 50% of the tip is left by the local population of Portugal. Many people think that the Portuguese do not leave tips, or do so extremely rarely. However, practice shows that the younger generation in particular is more inclined to leave a tip, as long as there are ways to do so that are interesting to them. It is important for them that tips go to a specific employee, and not into the owner’s pocket. The younger generation of Portugal is increasingly using mobile phones to pay for goods and services. They don't carry cash. Therefore, if you are the owner of a fashionable restaurant or cafe and want to retain your employees and give them the opportunity to earn more, use Keeptip. Even if your guests are only locals, believe us - until you have a tool to collect tips, you will not have tips. Like in the famous movie: No feet, No sweets
- The other 50% of visitors who leave tips are “Foreigners”, but they leave more if you give them the right service. Many of them come from countries with a high tips culture (England, USA). Paying tips cashless directly to an employee is common practice for them. In addition, they also often have little personal money or local currency. Providing a tip payment service that is normal to them will allow you to increase their volume by at least 30%. Why this cannot be done through Bank terminals - read here.
One of the successful cases - a renowned Chinese cuisine restaurant in Parque das Nações in Lisboa (The Old House
) over the course of a month significantly increased the volume of tips it received from both local customers and foreigners. The average one-time tip was 15 euros. Within a month, we get a good increase in employees’ salaries, which is sent to their personal account. They are very happy.
