Waitresses how does it work?

We went out to dinner last night and didn't have any cash for a tip so we added the tip to our debit card and it made me wonder, how does that work? Do the restaurants give the servers cash at the end of the night for all the tips put on debit cards or does it add on to their paycheck every week. I didn't tell the waitress we were adding her tip to our debit card and I don't want her to think she got stiffed.

 Usually restrauants will give them the money at the end of the night.

When I worked at Waffle House, we received those tips in with our paychecks. Not nightly.

Some places cash out each night, some put it in their check. Some make them split tips.

We reviewed cash at the end of the night when I waitressed but that was 9/10 years ago.

When they do their end of shift reconciliation, they should get it at the end of the shift.

We can see by the reciept that you tipped us with your debit card or credit card.. and how much you tipped us.

We get the tip in our paycheck.

I prefer when people tip with their debit / credit cards because they usually tip more.

We got ours nightly. Probably depends if it is a chain restaurant they probably get it on their checks. If it is just a mom and pop kind of place you usually get the tips that night.
