I would like to see an option where satisfied buyers can give a tip to sellers

Many buyers are very happy with the service that they get, so much so that they write a recommendation for the seller, and order more than once too. On some sites there is an option for a buyer to give a tip to a seller who has exceeded his/her expectations by over delivering or being really great in one way or another, such as a quick turnaround, or prompt replies etc. But this option is not possible here.

I believe allowing this would help to encourage more sellers to join, and offer a high quality service. What do you think?

I think anything that will help improve the process for buyers and sellers would be great, especially things are along the line of helping sellers to improve their service and things that will help buyers with making decisions regarding services and sellers.

Oh, I thought you meant tips, like in ideas.. I would like to see an option where satisfied buyers can give a tip to sellers

Anyhow, yeah, I wouldn't mind this option at all. You could as a seller create a service listing for this, by using a title like this: "Give me a tip because I'm awesome" or whatever, then set the price tag of $1 and allow Multiple Quantity Orders. That way, buyers would be able to give you whatever amount they want by changing the quantity. It's quite an easy thing to do. However, a real option for this would be far better, and it should obviously be a custom service-thing where buyers can leave whatever amount they want by just entering the amount themselves. With that being said, I do not think that this kind of "service" should be visible on the marketplace.

Perhaps add something like this on the profile page? Or just have that option in the delivery message, so buyers can easily see it once the seller have made the delivery.

You know what. I was just thinking about this the other day! It could be made available to the buyer in the order page they can tip any amount any time even after the order is delivered. Or it could be a small button/link on your public profile page saying something like "Click here to tip me" Or "Send this user a tip".

I think if that was possible, a lot of people would ask all their buyers to tip them. But there's nothing wrong with that if you do it properly and make it an OPTION for a buyer and not mandatory. You could say something like, "Do you like my work? Send me a tip and I'll provide you a discount coupon code" or just "Like my work/service? Click here to send me a tip".

There has been times when I've been blown away by some sellers amazing excellent customer service skills and you just have a lot of respect for some sellers period because they have helped you to succeed and more than meet your expectations. So it would be cool to be able to tip these sellers after they deliver if I really liked their work.

That would probably make it so that sellers tried to provide an even better service and customer service in the hopes of getting a tip. I think it it was an option that was added though, there would have to be a rule made that prevented you from demanding a tip else some people might try and make it mandatory for their buyers and that's not what a tip is about. Tips happen naturally!

I just meant that there could be an option where the buyer can decide to give a tip to the seller upon marking the order as completed, out of free will. Not that sellers ask for a tip.

This option existed on a site where I used to write and it was something that worked quite well as it motivated sellers to offer good quality services, which ultimately benefits the reputation of the site itself.

Besides many buyers often want to show their appreciation to a top notch service, and this could be the best way for them to do it.

I think that is a nice feature to have. It would as you all have said make the quality of the service would be much better because not only are you working for quality, but you're also trying to win the client over with tips. However, I wouldn't expect a tip because not everyone tips. But in the long run, this feature could be great to add, and hopefully no money is taken out of the tip jar and no fees should be attached to tips. I would like to see this feature sometime in the future most definitely.

Oh yes, I certainly hope that no fees would apply on the tip I would like to see an option where satisfied buyers can give a tip to sellers I strongly believe that with such a small feature you can get to have many more dedicated sellers who go out of their way to do a great quality job, and this benefits the site in terms of more sales and more satisfied buyers, who add up to sales with more repeat sales. It is a win win situation for all, and even though a good percentage of buyers will not be willing to pay a tip, there are quite a few who will be willing to.

I think this is a good idea. However I think a tip is included in the price, in my opinion. I also think that this would be nearly impossible because the buyer maybe a running a business where he is trying to save money. For him to pay more will make the service less competitive in my opinion, people will then run to other services like fiverr. So maybe not a good idea at all. The world is all about competition.
