Tipping has become a common practice in America and has been made easier by technology, such as with buttons on checkout screens that prompt you to tip. However, a Pew Research Center report shows that 72% of Americans feel that tipping is now expected in more places than it was before. This can create anxiety and pressure when being asked to tip, especially when there are preset options and warnings for not tipping. The convenience of digital tipping prompts may also lead to unintended tips and exacerbate social anxiety. Additionally, there are concerns about whether these digital tips actually reach the intended recipients. Businesses may make it harder for customers to choose lower tip options or no tip at all, leading to feelings of coercion or extortion. As a result, some individuals prefer to continue tipping in cash to have a more personal and rewarding experience.
