Should I tip?

When you order food for delivery (such as pizza), and the company charges a delivery fee....is that money normally given to the person delivering the food? I'm wondering whether I should be tipping on top of the delivery fee.

The delivery fee isn't paid to the driver.

Nope. The bottom of the receipt usually says that a delivery charge is not a tip and does not go to the driver.

They don't see a dime of that.

You should absolutely tip, they usually pay for their own gas.

Usually that is to subsidize cost of delivering; the vehicle, the gas, the delivery drivers wage and is not given to the driver. I would still tip.

ok, thanks everyone. I shall tip then. I feel bad now because I didn't tip before. I thought they were "double dipping". Now I know.

 This. My hubby was laid off from his job last month so he has been delivering pizzas for the past couple of weeks. He makes $4 an hour and doesn't receive the delivery fee.
