Common questions

Should you tip? Yes, you should pay for a good service that is acceptable to you.

Who should get your tips? Just anyone in the service industry who perform good job, for instance taxi drivers, food restaurant workers, barbers, maids, bartenders and webmasters etc.

How much to give? Tipping value should be from 10% to 20%, but it can be more than that .

But if service delivered was not good, tip nothing and notify management. If the service was slow, give 10%. If service was ok, give 15%. If service was great, give 20%.

But if the service is slow it is not always the staff fault. But If you like the service and plan to return then the service was good enough that you should tip something. If the service was so poor that you plan not to give, then you should report to the appropriate person.

How do you figure the tipping amount without a calculator? You can calculate tips without Internet connection by using the formula steps provided.

calculating 15% = This gives 10% + 5%. So we calculate 10% of the amount and add it to the 5% to give you 15% .

To calculate 10% of the tipping amount, you just move the decimal place one to the left. For example, if the bill is $50.00 then 10% would be $5.00.

Then to figure out 5%, just take half of that, which would be $2.50.

So calculating 15% tipping, we have 10% which is $5.00 and 5% which is $2.50, add them together for a total of $7.50.

To calculate 20% = we add 10% of the amount and another 10% of the amount to give 20%

so 20% will be $5.00 plus another $5.00 to give $10.

if the dollar bill value ends at odd value such as $9.20 or something like 20.70, you round the amount to the nearest whole number, before you calculate.
