TIPS left for small gigs, more than large gigs?


Hey friends.
I’d love to know if it is just me who noticed this, but I get a ton of tips for a lot of my small gigs, while for any of the large projects I work on, (and there are a lot) clients are not so inclined to leave a tip…

Why is that?
Perhaps they already spent a lot and can not afford more?


@capitalquality made a nice topic about that here -


Oh wow, thanks !
Guess I wasnt the only one who noticed ! :slight_smile:


I get them on large orders, never small ones. Most of the time people place $5 orders they never even come back or leave feedback. They forget them.


That always sucks… I hate when I put work and there was no acknowledgement what so even.

I get it, I made the money, but still :slight_smile:


I assume some people tip for small because then they are inclined to then leave a small tip. Big orders = big tips and some clients probably can’t afford to leave a $30 tip as opposed to $3 most likely? Not sure. My guess.


I get $7 or $9 tips. Why is this?


Dear Miss Crystal:

Everybody knows 7 is a lucky number, but what about 9?

According to Wikipedia:

Nine is a Motzkin number. It is the first composite lucky number, along with the first composite odd number. 9 is the only positive perfect power that is one more than another positive perfect power, by Mihăilescu’s Theorem. Nine is the highest single-digit number in the decimal system.

Perhaps your tippers think these dollar amounts are propitious?

Good luck,


Me too lmao they’re all I get
