How much?

I'm wondering how much you tip your food delivery person... Do you base it on the cost of the food or on how far the driver had to go to get to you?  If you spend $20-30 on food being delivered, what is an appropriate amount to tip?

Good question. We FINALLY have a pizza place that delivers. So I would like to know also.

I only ever get pizza delivered and it's usually $16-$18 so I just give them a $20

 For us its how fast the service was, how friendly the driver was, and how much i spent. Also I check the quality of the food before the driver leaves.

I usually tip between 15-20%.  15% for regular service. 20% if the weather was bad and they had to schlep through it to get my pizza to me.

I give $5 as a tip. We don't order a ton of food and I never ask them to deliver in bad weather. If I don't want to be out in it I won't ask someone else to be.

$3 or 10-15%, whichever is more. And if it's raining cats and dogs, I might throw a few extra bucks their way. most places around here charge a delivery fee, which I know doesn't necessarily go to the driver, but I have to believe that a portion of the tip doesn't go to the driver either, ahh tip pooling.

15% - I usually just double the tax, which is 7.5%

20% if they were really good.

Honestly only a few bucks based on nothing. BUT where I live now there is no delivery so it's been I'd say 5+ years since I've had delivery so no idea lol

I would say 10-15% tip, which is technically not much, but I feel for the drivers some have to use their own vehicles.  If the service was speedy and great, I'll make it a flat $20.
