How should I ask for tips to my buyer?

A friend that is also on Fiverr commented on that quite a while ago, but I’ve never feel comfortable to do so. When and How should I do it?

Don’t. It’s presumptuous.

You could say "Can you tip me?"
No I was joking, emmaki is right, never ask for a tip.

Look at it this way, begging for tips is probably gonna completely put them off from buying from you ever again whereas if you didn’t beg them for more money, they might order from you at a later date. In the long run, it’s not worth it.

Agree with everyone else, just don’t. Even back when I worked in a restaurant, I never assumed a tip was coming. If the customer paid in cash, I would immediately start making change until they said otherwise.

I’ve always found it off-putting when waitstaff would ask, “Do you want change?” even as someone who was working for tips.

I thing never ask to buyer for tip, Try to deliver quality work according to buyer requirements and with in time then he can gave you tip without asking.

Asking for a tip is begging. Don’t do it.

I’ve been tipped several times without asking. Delivering high quality work, good communication and a friendly attitude might do it. Also, I used Fiverr as a buyer a couple of times and in one of these experiences, a seller asked me to tip her… guess what? I didn’t and I have never used her again!

I am a buyer and try to use the same sellers repeatedly when possible. If a seller asked me for a tip I would not use them again.

NEVER ask for a TIP, having said that, I actually get a lot of TIPS. =) and here’s my tip…

Make sure you deliver kickass content all the time… communicate with your clients, listen to them and maintain a kind demeanor. Set their expectations and walk them through what’s happening and make sure that they are satisfied with your work.

Now after doing all this, my best tip is don’t expect to be tipped… Sometimes it just doesn’t work that way… You may lose on tips but I guarantee you this kind of work ethic will bring you more return business and more clients in the future.

You don’t have to ask for tip. They will tip you if they feel your work go beyond there expectations or you worked really hard for it.

If your work is good and more than their expectations, you automatically get TIP… I get tips on my 50% orders, but never asked them.

Dont ask for the tip. The tips you are getting here should be enough for you :slight_smile:

Your rates should be high enough such that you don’t have to rely on tips.
Most sellers here are offering professional services. I often feel badly when someone tips my normal service, because I am offering a professional service and I am already getting paid what I’m worth.
