eTip Chosen As Exclusive Digital Tipping Partner For Shamin Hotels


eTip, the digital tipping and financial benefits platform tailored to service sector businesses, today announces its exclusive digital tipping partnership with Shamin Hotels, a dynamic, growth-oriented hotel company that owns, operates, and develops commercial business hotels under the Hilton, Marriott and InterContinental Hotel Group flags. Now, the two million guests that annually stay at Shamin Hotels’ 76 properties can seamlessly and securely express their gratitude to the over 3,000 associates who work to create exceptional stays.

Meanwhile, nearly 95 percent of guests in a recent survey conducted by eTip reported they would have left a tip for hotel staff during their last stay if there had been a digital option for them to do so. As technology evolves and guest preferences shift, hotel groups like Shamin Hotels are turning to eTip's intuitive platform to streamline guest experiences and retain more hotel staff through increased tipping.

“Our daily mission is to work to create the ‘Shamin Touch,’” says Neil Amin, CEO of Shamin Hotels. “Today, we’re doing just that, recognizing the increasing technological preferences of our customers and responding accordingly with a state-of-the-art tipping solution that supports our passionate associates.”

eTip requires no mobile app download or login credentials. Guests simply scan a QR code using the camera on their mobile phone, tap the banner on their screen, and then tip using their preferred payment method. eTip also offers “tap to tip,” allowing guests to pay through an NFC-enabled QR code. Once the guest leaves a tip electronically, associates can quickly receive it in their bank account, eliminating the need to wait for a tip to be paid through the weekly or bi-weekly payroll process. eTip makes digital tipping easier and faster for guests and associates.

“As we pioneer the future of hospitality with partners like Shamin Hotels, we look forward to enhancing guest experiences and uplifting the lives of associates,” says Nicolas Cassis, Co-Founder and CEO of eTip. “At eTip, we believe in the power of innovation to create a ripple effect of positive change. Together, we're rewriting the script of service, one digital tip at a time.”
