Tip me aims to contribute to solving the overwhelming injustice in the global supply chain Specifically in the fashion industry, on average just 3% of the final price paid by the customer ends up in the workers pocket.
The Global Tip is a pioneering solution that works to reduce global inequality in garment supply chains, connecting consumers directly with the people behind their products and generating complementary income for garment workers worldwide. Tip me's target groups are threefold and encompass three key elements of the supply chain: companies, by advocating for more transparent and ethical garment production; consumers by encouraging tipping the way we tip baristas and other service providers; and workers by providing them with a fair wage for their work.
The Global Tip improves the connection between garment workers and their consumers often based thousands of kilometres apart. In doing so, the solution automatically provides workers access to mobile solutions, in particular digital payments.
Tip Me plans to increase its number of affiliated brands from 10 to 85 by 2023. The solution plans to be available and adopted in 7 of the major garment producing countries. The tip system is scalable to over 80 countries thanks to partnerships with TransferWise (payment partner) and Stellar Foundation (on chain solutions for international payments).
