San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2011
Ziptip, Inc. announces the launch of its new service that facilitates the payment of tips and gratuities. Users download the Ziptip app in the Android Market. Tippees sign up at Ziptip.net.
Ziptip, Inc. was organized in early 2011 in order to improve upon the current method of fumbling for cash when paying tips and gratuities. After incorporating, Co-founders Sherry Gordon and Lois Hamblet soon realized the many ways users would benefit from their method, and a provisional patent was filed. A team of talented developers was assembled led by Jiong Shen, Technology Chief.
The Ziptip service allows for quick, simple, convenient and instant tipping using smart phones and coded symbologies. The patent pending process utilizes Medallions that are displayed by Tippees. Although taking many forms, Medallions usually are similar to business cards but contain the necessary information to transact the tip. There is no hardware required.
Ziptip users link to their accounts on PayPal, the most trusted payment platform provider in the world. Tippers and Tippees do not exchange any personal information, making Ziptip completely confidential, just like cash.
Ziptip’s app for Android devices is available in the Android Market effective immediately. The Ziptip.net web site is now signing up Tippees. The Ziptip apps for iphone, webOS and web app will be released shortly.
The Ziptip service is available in over 20 countries.
Ziptip has been awarded five accolades since beginning its development in March 2011 including Best Use of the Sencha Touch App Framework and Best Use Case/Best Market Potential (HP Cross Platform Challenge Award) at WIP Connector's Muther! of all Hackathons + DevCon 2011 (June 2011) and Best App, Silver Medal (Investors' Choice Award) and Best Use of the PayPal API (Sponsor’s Choice Award) at the Android DevCamp in March 2011.
