Providing tips is providing payment for the employees for their labor or services rendered. Sometimes it will be treated as a token of appreciation. When you leave a tip for someone, like a waiter at a restaurant, you are saying thank you for their assistance.

In the Odoo 16 POS module, the customer can also change their balances into tips while making cash payments. This can lead to more convenience for the customers, and when customers tip their cashier, it can show the cashier that their work is appreciated. This can improve employee morale and lead to better customer service.
