Tip.ly, the first peer-to-peer mobile payment application that allows people to tip service professionals with their phone just like cash, is competing in the second annual Venture Madness pitch competition for a chance at a $50,000 shared prize. The tipping app, Tip.ly, eliminates the need to exchange personal information, like phone numbers, email addresses, bank details and credit cards, and allows users the ability to tip anyone, anywhere.
“E-tipping is the way of the future,” said Stephen Campbell, Co-Founder and CEO of Tip.ly. “We are thrilled to be one of the honored startups chosen to compete in Venture Madness and expand the knowledge on tipping made easy.”
Founded by Stephen Campbell and Tim Baldwin, Tip.ly intertwines the age-old practice of tipping with advanced cell phone technology. Gone are the days of worrying about having enough cash before flying out on a business trip, getting your haircut or even valeting your car on date night.
Tip.ly secures all financial data with 256-bit encryption, the highest-level encryption available, so all transactions are 100% secure. When e-tipping with Tip.ly, photos are used to ensure the correct person receives the payment.
