You can add a tipping option to your store checkout, so customers can support your business or express their gratitude for your service. On the payment page, your clients can choose from the tip amounts or percentages that you set in your store manager.

You can also set a custom title and description for the tips section that will suit your goals. For example, you can call this section “tips” if you run a restaurant, or call it “donations” if you are a non-profit organization.
