Speaking to Daily Mail Australia about his own tipping habits on Thursday, Sandilands said: ‘I usually only tip if they’re really friendly or they’ve done their job really well or… it’s a pleasant experience.’ 

‘I never do the 20 percent thing. I’m not good at maths,’ he said.   

When quizzed on the biggest tip he’s ever given, Sandilands divulged: ‘[I tipped] probably $1000 at a restaurant somewhere and it’s probably because it was an expensive bill and I thought, ‘Oh s**t, I can’t figure out the 20% so I’ll put another thousand on it’.

Sandilands also said he recently tipped $300 at upmarket Sydney restaurant Mimi’s after enjoying a dinner with his girlfriend Tegan Kynaston and several other couples.  

The shock jock said he felt guilty after another couple paid for their entire meal. 

[The other couple had] already put a tip in but I felt the need to [as well]. I thought, ‘Oh, I’m the tipping guy now. So I can’t not tip.’ So I ordered two lattes and paid $315 dollars for it. They were only really $15, but with a tip of $300.

Fiona, a teacher, and Mick, a member of the Australian Defence Force, came up with the idea of a touch-free tipping method during Covid.  

Sandilands said he’s confident TapJar will take off in an increasingly cashless society. 

‘I met this couple and they told me about the app, and I thought, ‘Oh, I can see this working’. They’ve done all the building and planning of it all, and they were looking for investors,’ Sandilands said. 

‘And I thought, ‘Oh, that’s something I can actually understand how it works, and that’ll be my first venture into the tech world.’
