About KickFin

Kickfin is a tip distribution solution that helps restaurants, bars, clubs, nightclub venues, hotels and entertainment centers directly deposit tips into employees’ bank accounts. It enables managers to create groups, manage employee profiles and approve tip amounts for staff members. The application allows supervisors to maintain payment records, conduct cost analysis, generate reports and ensure data security in compliance with PCI regulations.

Kickfin review

Being able to pay employees their tips electronically instead of from the cash drawer daily is a game changer.

Can't think of anything negative. It's a great product.

Kickfin is single biggest time saver in our business!

Pros

Every now and then you come across a company that just does everything right! From our initial sales call to on-boarding and use of the product. It was an easy, intuitive, and hugely time saving process to join kickfin. I highly recommend the service to any industry that needs to pay out tips daily and no longer wants to deal having to maintain a large cash balance on property. I researched several options on the market before going with kickfin, the biggest selling point was the ability to instantly deposit directly to employees bank accounts without having to deal with proprietary and cumbersome pay cards like many other services.

Cons

A push notification or daily summary email to account admins would be nice to review what floor managers paid out the night before without having to log into the service to review payouts.

First time kickfin user

Pros

Once employees have been entered into the system, Kickfin is super easy to use. No issues with paying employees.

Cons

KickFin has a strange recharge system. Sometimes it takes days for money to hit the account. We have been noticing the lag in recharge happening more often. It's frustrating when the KickFin account doesn't have enough money but they've already taken the money from your business account. For someone who uses KickFin and also does staff payroll, I wish there was an easier way to pull employee wages. The reports show the day to day reporting, rather than a grand total. KickFin pulls it's own pay periods rather than me allowing to choose my dates. I have to go through an add each employees tips for each day of the pay period. Not a huge issue but a little annoying.

Kickfin works for both restaurants and employees

We have used Kickfin in two of our restaurants and are looking at it for a third in the near future. Kickfin streamlined tip payment, has prompt support, and simple to use.

Pros

Management are able to distribute tips instantly without a complicated dashboard allowing the business to keep less cash on hand and reduce theft. Staff appreciate immediate access to tips instead of taking cash to the bank or waiting on a weekly check. Platform is affordable and easy to setup and roll out.

Cons

Would like to see more direct integrations with modern POS systems like Toast and Revel to allow for direct tip integration.

The new way to pay!

I absolutely love this product and the ability to have employees at multiple locations is even more useful now too

Pros

Being able to pay my delivery drivers daily from all the credit card tips means fewer trips to the bank to reload the cash drawer with so many people using credit cards to pay these days

Cons

2 Step verification is annoying and the fees are a little higher than I would want
