If you want to tip food delivery drivers correctly, always give them cash and consider how the weather could have made the delivery more difficult.
A recent New York Times article exposed how one app was using tips to subsidize its workers’ pay.
DoorDash changed this policy after public outcry.
You can make sure your tip isn’t being used by the company in any way by giving the delivery person cash, according to USA Today.
Most customers and drivers think $4 is fair, according to a recent study from restaurant supplier US Foods.
The same study also found 95% of people tip regularly.
Always give more for large orders and factor in weather conditions.
MarketWatch recommends tipping between 25%-30% during extreme weather.
Let’s just hope your food isn’t as cold as ice when it arrives.
