Get Tips associated with a Shift

In the Square UI, under “Labor & tips”, when Adding a new shift record, there is a space to add “Tips earned”. There is also an export option, and the resulting CSV shows the tips added to the shift.

However, in the API, we cannot find where the tips earned on a shift is reflected anywhere. Currently, we are not making any orders or payments, and in the documentation, the only place we’re seeing Tips is on the Payments. Any ideas where these shift tips would appear via the API?

Currently, tips aren’t available in the Labor API. We’re constantly working to improve our features based on feedback like this, so I’ll be sure to share your request to the API product team.

The payment is the source of truth for tips. It also has team_member_id in the response. You’ll need to ListPayments for a given time period and total up the the tip_money for each team member at this time. :slightly_smiling_face:

Any update on this? Are tips available via the API?

Yes, tips are available with the Payments API. :slightly_smiling_face:
