ChangeTip enables P2P payments in the form of tips, gifts, or donations, and supports both US dollars and bitcoin. The new ‘Explore’ option allows users to broadcast their location using GPS and find others nearby using the ChangeTip app.
Money can be sent instantly by selecting an individual discovered nearby, without exchanging contact information. Users can use this function to tip drivers, servers, buskers, and event vendors more easily, conveniently, and for free. This offers people a way to leave home without their credit cards, or cash, as they can now use their phone to send money to anyone, anywhere.
“We’re living in an increasingly cashless society, and it’s the most obvious when I go to tip a busker, leave some change in a tip jar, or attempt to donate a person in need,” says Victoria van Eyk, ChangeTip. “The ChangeTip app allows me to solve this problem just by using my mobile phone.”
Users may add money to a ChangeTip ‘Pocket’, similar to a digital ‘Wallet’ used to store funds for future use. ChangeTip specializes in micropayments as low as pennies or fractions of pennies when using BTC, and as high as $100 when using either supported currency. Organizations use ChangeTip to collect donations, distribute rewards, and monetize content.
The app supports iOS 8.0+ on iPhone and iPod touch, and is free in the App Store. Visit https://info.changetip.com/getiosapp for more information about the app and to access screenshots and a demo video.
