When you order pizza and they add a delivery charge, do you still give the driver a tip?

I don't. If they don't add a deliver charge onto my bill then I always tip (well as long as it gets to me in a decent time and the person is friendly). How do you do it?

  • You do know that the delivery charge does not go to the driver right?

  • Yeah it usually doesn't go to the driver and even if it does it's only a dollar. Minimum wage for servers is right around 3 dollars an hour, I've worked for tips and it's hard when people don't tip well, so you should tip them on top of the charge even if they do get the dollar charge, a dollar is not a sufficient tip.

  • You should always tip if someone is doing you a service no matter what the business is charging.

  • My son worked for Pizza Hut, and did not get reimbursed for gas, or get the delivery charge. Tip the pizza delivery person.

  • The only thing we were paid when I delivered back in school was base pay and tips. No gas fee, no delivery fee - anyone who believes that is just making excuses and being cheap.

  • I always tip at least $3, sometimes $5 or $6 if it's a large order

  • I usually tip something on top of the charge. If they are super fast, with a hot pizza, then I will tip more, but I always tip!

  • I always tip. That delivery charge doesn't go to the driver. I don't even know why they started charging that delivery fee. Never used to have one!
