Allow Credit Card Tipping at Starbucks
As a former barista (ID:1254794), I am appalled that customers are *still* not able to leave a tip on a credit card - especially in light of the Covid situation, since many people are not carrying cash.
Linking the ability to tip non-cash only via Starbucks Cards is a rotten way to get people to sign up for a card, and deprives hard-working Baristas of an important part of their income.
Please catch up with every other modern food and beverage service establishment and accept tips via Credit/debit cards.
Why is this important?
As a former Barista/Shift Supervisor, I can assure you Baristas work hard for that money. They are subject to ever-evolving rules, regulations, and recipes. They are asked to work at top speed and efficiency, push sales up, and be kind even in extreme situations. They deserve every cent.
As a customer, I want to make sure they are rewarded for their service. The traditional reward is tipping.
