Can I tip any band anywhere?

Yes, as long as they have signed up as well.  Look for our trademark monkey logos!  If they haven't signed up, pls introduce them to this amazing app!

Can I use this app for other vendors?

Yes, anyone can create a tip jar. Even though our original focus has been on bands, we've reached out to vendors, street artists, maids, valet drivers, shuttle drivers, tour directors, and have had an amazing response. But always check with any company or corporation you work for, to make sure it adheres to company policy

How do I find out what band is playing in the venue I am in?

All bands can check in and use their GPS location, however they can also be identified by their band ID, as well as a unique QR code they may use in advertising. If you choose to use gps you will also be able to see what bands are playing in near by venues

Can I send the band a message or ask for a special shout out?

In most cases a message can be sent.  However any band or vendor can determine the $ amount for this feature to be used. After sending the tip you will be prompted to the next  screen where it will allow for a message to be sent. Be creative. Give thanks. But always remember to be polite and refrain from using any type of vulgar language

Is my information safe?

Yes. Safety is our Top Priority! All our transactions and interactions are processed through secured servers and SSL protocols to help protect your privacy.

Do I have to enter my credit card information each time I tip?

No, once you securely sign up you're good to go and use the app any time you see one of our trademark logos. You will get a pop up confirmation indicating you would like to use the payment method you currently have on file, if this is not the case, you can add a different payment method at any time.

If I am a band or vendor and create a tip jar what fees do I pay?

Pls see our FEE CHART. We have one of the lowest fee structures so the band or vendor gets the most money possible. Ours is an app with purpose. Our long term goal is to give back to music in the schools.

Does TM have any special causes?

TM would like to be successful enough to be able to give back to music and arts in the schools. It's a passion of ours to help kids learn and love to play music. It's often  one of the first programs schools cut when they look for budget cuts.
