If you can’t afford to tip drivers, do NOT order for delivery
For God’s sake, if you don't tip drivers, don’t order delivery, or you support slavery, you will eventually be enslaved!! Look at how much money I made, spending total 4 hours, $71!!!! Less $8 gas.. WTF
I recently received some orders that’s large during the pin, like $13/5 miles, you are happy with order like this right? That means the tip is at least $8. You make the one-time delivery, these motherfuckers slick. It will reduce the tip back to $2, the order ends up at $7. Contacted DoorDash, there is nothing they can do. I hope these MFs get choked while eating the food. SoB

R8, that's a whole other issue. I waited tables back in the 90's when I was in college. Waiters have to claim their sales and tips at the end of each shift for tax purposes. I'm not sure how they're handling it these days, but that would suck having to ring up a bunch of orders and not get anything, but have to claim tips you never made.
R10, think of it this way... do taxi drivers drive you around for free? I mean, it's one thing to stiff a server at a restaurant, but it takes an extra special lazy cheap ass bean counter have someone pick up and drive the food to your god damned house.

I always tip 15%, but NOT ON A DRUNK DELIVERY. I've had some come up to my door twice obviously loaded, even weaving. I tried to distract and delay as I called 911 and even managed to get the plate on one of two. I don't know what came of these. I did call Door Dash, but I don't know if it mattered.

The restaurants and, in this case, the delivery platforms need to pay better or perhaps share some of that "delivery fee" with the person who's actually delivering the orders. I don't use any of the food-delvery apps since the cost for a meal can easily double once fees, tax, and are added. Then I'm supposed to tip on top of it? No thanks.

I ordered Chinese delivery through DoorDash at the beginning of the pandemic, which I seldom do because my house is really hard to find.
The driver passed by the house three or four times, and then stopped at my drive. I figured he was scared to walk down my long, gravel drive so I walked up to get the delivery and he’d rolled over in the ditch and fire trucks and police cars were out there! I felt so horrible but the police wouldn’t let me talk to him even though he was physically okay.
When I contacted DoorDash to try to tip him they wouldn’t let me and wouldn’t send a message to the driver to get in contact. I was going to send him some cash but was stymied.

UE= uber eats, GH=grub hub and DD= door dash
You the customer set the price, if you order $3 of food from McDonalds you can set the tip. Let's say you do $2 tip.
So the PING (call) goes out to the drivers for $5.00. The "Pin" indicates the location. Then the driver can choose or not to accept the ping and take the order.
One problem is all the platforms allow the customer to take back the "tip," after a delivery.
UE is strictly a pick up and go. With GH and/or DD you may have to go into the restaurant and order and pay for the food. (They give you a card for payment, so the driver doesn't have to front the cost).
Other factors is restaurants don't always have food ready on time, deliveries are usually rushly made and the "last concern" of the restaurant and now with staffing issues restaurants will close and leave drivers with open orders, because it closed early. Restaurant have to turn off the app or it will show open.
The OP was saying the original order was $13 ($5 food, $8 tip) and the distance was $5 miles. Then the customer reduced the tip to $2.00
And he made $17..75 an hour, not including gas.

R20, that's tip pooling. It sucks that restaurants are pushing this, that's shady as shit. Waiters make far below minimum wage with the understanding that their tips will make up for the difference. In reality, businesses are *supposed* to make up for the difference to bring them up to at least minimum wage if they don't make enough during a given shift, but they never do. It was about $2.30/hr + tips when I waited tables. You're not doing someone a kindness by tipping them, that's their living. The IRS will come after them and audit them otherwise when it comes time to file taxes.

One of the prepared food delivery sites I use now shows the amount total amount of the order designated for the delivery person. It's meant to show that it's not an inconsequential portion of the total price and includes a minimum amount for any order. They note that any additional tip is at the customer's discretion, but also that anything additional is of course appreciated by the delivery person.
Maybe it's transparency or a hint of virtue signaling but I'm glad for the breakdown. Tips are not customary here at restaurants except occasionally, and in what to Americans (or American Dataloungers at least) would seem very small amounts, so it's good to understand how the delivery people are paid. Also with the apps you have a very clear sense of how much time a delivery person devoted to your order from the point of leaving to collect it and then bringing it from the restaurant to your home; that gives a sense, too, of what a good tip is.

Buy the way on tipping, why do these fast food places assist on having those tipping for pick up meals? They are being paying minimum wage.

I am actively seeking a better job at the moment, but DoorDash helps cover things. I live in a smaller city with many rural areas, so all the restaurants are close together, but deliveries can be up to 15 miles away.
I appreciate all thr the tips I get, since DoorDash's base rate is like $2. I try to work at promo times, so it's base rate plus $2 or $3 more, but without a tip, some deliveries end up being $3 to $4 bucks for like 20 miles round-trip. It's not worth it at all, but my area doesn't have a bunch of orders either, so sometimes you have to take those crap orders.

r81, part of the problem is that DoorDash charges exorbitant fees. Someone who is sick or really desperate for food tries to get $20 of soup from a local restaurant and ends up paying $40 or more -- the prices are marked up, then there's an $3.99 delivery charge, an $8.50 service charge, plus tip. By the time they get to your tip, they're skimping because they can't afford it. Even though it says all those extra charges aren't a tip and don't go to you, I'm sure many people think you must get minimum wage as an employee anyway, just like a delivery driver who works for Dominos or similar would.

I can see how some people get confused by the tip. If you order a $12 fast food meal, there is often a $2.99 service fee plus a $3.99 delivery fee. That's an extra 7 bucks added, before you add the tip.
You have to tip well in advance, or no delivery person will decide to take your order. Sometimes, after the person picks up my order it takes 40 minutes for them to bring it five miles to me because they're making three other stops to deliver other people's food. A few weeks back, my order included a cold canned soda. Someone put it in the same bag with my hot food.
But I keep tipping well because I appreciate this service. A few years back, the only places that delivered were pizza places and Chinese food restaurants.

So it would just be a surprise to get your cash. Like 99 out of 100 times it would be no tip instead of cash. DD "hides" tips too so drivers can't cherry pick.
You are a rare and wonderful breed. THANK YOU. Because it's cash, you'll leave the tip field blank in the app so the order pings to drivers looking low, because DD only pays minimal base pay. A no tip order might come in at $5, for 6 miles. A tip order would look like $10 for 6 miles. But that $10 could be more because they hide tips. It's kind of hard to explain. Out of 7,000 deliveries maybe 20 have tipped in cash.

I just don't feel like any takeout food is worth the incredible price inflation caused by having it delivered. I mean - it's just takeout food. But now it's priced at or near a decent mid-priced restaurant meal.
First the delivery app marks up the cost of the food, then they add the delivery charge, then you add the tip. A friend ordered two pizzas from a local place and after the markup, service fee*, delivery fee, and tip, it was almost a hundred bucks.
*Many local restaurants are now adding an 18-21% "service fee" to their tabs, dine-in or takeout, supposedly to cover the increased costs of higher wages and benefits. The fee is NOT a gratuity, which is still expected.
If I can't pick up some takeout myself, I'll just fix myself a grilled cheese sandwich.

R179 Totally. I used to work in hospitality, specifically fine dining. I made a decent living from it during that time in my life when I was young and had the energy and mental stamina for it. In those environments a 20% is expected, at least, considering standards of service were exceeded. I have since aged out of it and will start down a vocational path of study this summer. I am doing in between jobs right now and one is door dash. It is okay to help make ends meet but I couldn’t pay my bills with just that alone. I also do not expect a 20% tip when I deliver food despite having a hospitality background. After mark-ups and fees the average person doesn’t want to (or can’t) tip 20% on top of that and in this climate I find that understandable. The law of averages usually evens things out in the long run anyhow.

Tip culture is something I increasingly see as warped after living outside the US for so long. It’s quite masterful actually that big business has conned the general public into subsidising living wages for their employees. Within the general population, it’s turned into some kind of comparative measure of nobility with people feeling self satisfied they are ‘generous tippers’ while others are not. Y’all been had! It also allows people to be tyrannical to staff who may not be performing well due to reasons completely outside they’re control. It can be such an ugly process. It’s all stupid because it’s a shell game. Why not just play a flat price upfront? Anyway, I do of course tip when in the US because I realise the employees are locked into the system. It took me a long time to ween off tipping in other countries where it’s not expected because it was ‘morally ingrained’ in my American programming. Like most US things, tip culture is steadily encroaching here in the UK,. All the major delivery services spam you now to tip both the restaurant and the delivery person even before you get your food.

[quote] Why not just play a flat price upfront?
Restaurants who tried that have all failed because people balk at the higher prices.

[quote]Such an American thread.
It is. Tipping in bars and restaurants where I live is not customary. It's not rare, but it's for a favorite waiter, or the guy who made excellent recommendations or maybe brought you something extra, or for someone who was unusually good. Restaurant staff are paid at least a living wage which is more akin to the average wage than it is in the U.S., and the disparity in wages between a lawyer and a waiter exists but the only thing shocking about it is how comparatively narrow the range of wages for 99% of jobs.
Tipping for people whose only job it is to bring food from a restaurant to your door, whose jobs arose in the lockdown and quarantine periods of Covid seems like it would be more prevalent yet it is more the exception than the rule. Delivery people, however, are protected by work contracts and paid living wages. I always tip, but there are only two apps of the five or six I use that have a provision for including a tip as part of your order; it's simply up to the customer to tip in cash if he wants. Deliverers are always very happy for a tip, whether cash or paid in advance, A couple Euros plus some smaller coins if I have them is my usual tip; if it's cold or wet or the order takes forever to prepare with the deliverer waiting for the restaurant to pass off the order for a long time, I tip more, but the usual couple of Euros is enough to get a very genuine thanks when the tip is the extra rather than the essence of their pay.
Not having a delivery person's or a waiter's or bartender's pay be a prisoner to tips, paying them decently in the first place doesn't make service worse, it makes it better.
The idea of tipping restaurant staff through an app for preparing your order would be laughable here.

Let me explain the libercuntian / republicunt position:
Service workers are reliant on tips to make a decent wage:
1) I didn't set up that system. Even though it's locked in, the employer should pay them fairly. Thus I don't tip meagerly, if at all.
2) these are little jobs for young folks and people in-between real jobs.
3) many people working service jobs reliant on tips are losers or lazy. Why don't they get A.S. degrees and certificates. Or better jobs. What losers. Why should I pay for them if they aren't going to help themselves?
4) Considering 2 and 3) its perfectly ethical to exploit people because its just a little part time job, its temporary, or they are losers who won't better themselves. It's all their fault. I have a good income Sorry for them. It's American. They had their chance. Bunch of losers.

No offense, Europeans, but I'm pretty sure the Americans on DL are well-aware of the tipping-no tipping difference between our respective cultures.

R168 and r178, Although there is undeniable logic to your points, nonetheless the home-delivery system operates like a restaurant, to wit:
It takes a waitperson no more time and entails no more effort to bring you a plate of caviar and truffles than it takes and entails with a platter of Campbell's pork and beans.
But your gratuities will differ, won't they, based on the bill?

Ordered grub hub today; $45 on McDonald’s, including the 20% tip and delivery charge. 2 orders and they forgot the fries. I text and told them and I haven’t received a response. We can’t afford this.

You texted who? The driver? They don’t give a shit you didn’t get your fries, fattie. They’re already on their next delivery. You think they’re going to take personal unpaid time out to go to McDonald’s again to get you fries? And who would pay for those fries?? The driver himself? Hahahahaha.

I think doordash, uber eats etc. should allow the drivers to rate the customers. If someone is an asshole, reduces the tip etc. then drivers will have the option to not take their order. If you have a bad rating b/c you are a jerk- you will have to tip more as an incentive. And my tipping rule for delivery services is 20% but in no case less than $10. I mean, they are driving TO the place, picking up my food and then driving it to my house.

Also, the reason why we tip in America is we have laws that allow employers to pay those in the service industry who are paid tips about $3 a hour- and if they don't make any tips, so sorry, so sad. Other positions receive a minimum wage depending on where they live- but around $10 to $15 a hour is minimum. And we all know this, so when we order delivery or go out to eat, to not tip someone is just disgusting and beyond cheap. I wish we would go away with the tipping custom and pay these individuals an actual living wage- but employers lobby against this because they prefer to pay $3 a hour and pass on the compensation to the employees.
