Adjust tip settings for GoDaddy Payments

You can give your customers the option to add a tip to their order during in-person transactions. After a customer has swiped their card, they'll be given the option to select one of 3 customized tipping options or enter their own tip amount.

If this is your first time enabling tips, you'll be guided through a series of questions to optimize the settings for your business. Afterwards, you can view and customize your settings whenever you'd like.

Note: Some types of businesses aren't eligible to receive tips. If the option to tip doesn't appear during in-person transactions, tips may have been disabled for the type of business you operate. To find out if you can re-enable tips for your business, please contact customer support. Our GoDaddy Guides are here to help.
