IoT Provider Partners To Innovate Charitable Payments


KORE, a global provider of managed communications specializing in Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) markets, is partnering with DipJar to bring connectivity to its electronic tip and donation jars.

With access to KORE’s network, DipJar will be able to process gratuity and donation payments wirelessly without the need to interface with a point-of-sale system.

“KORE plays a critical role in helping DipJar pioneer and innovate in the charitable electronic payments space,” said KORE CEO Alex Brisbourne in a press release. “In a growing cashless retail environment, DipJar is helping increase compensation for the hardworking people in the service industry, while also making it easy and convenient for consumers to make charitable donations.”

Through its full-service dip-and-pay device, DipJar enables one-step electronic payments that can be made at the countertop of a coffee shop or for the donation box of a charity.

The plug-and-play, standalone solution requires no integration with a merchant’s existing point-of-sale system, enabling DipJar customers to get more money for their employees or collect more money for a cause without disrupting their payments system.

DipJar operates 600 electronic tip jars throughout the U.S., with plans to deploy more in the next year. Through KORE PRiSMPro, DipJar can remotely monitor and manage all of the jars it has distributed.

“Our electronic tip jars require the highest levels of security and reliability. KORE’s network ensures that customer data and payment information is safe,” DipJar Founder and CEO Ryder Kessler stated. “We also chose the KORE network for its longstanding reputation for seamless and reliable connectivity. DipJar never has to worry about an outage.”
