How Much Do You Tip Food Delivery Drivers?

This is probably a question I could simply ask on Twitter or Facebook, but I need some content for my 30 blog posts in 30ish days challenge. If you eat at a restaurant, you probably tip around 20% of your bill. For my question, I’m specifically asking about food delivery from individual restaurants since I honestly don’t know the pricing structure for companies like DoorDash, UberEats, etc. works. I’m thinking about your general order from pizza chains like Dominos or Papa John's. It could be from Panera or your local Chinese restaurant too. Do you give a 20% tip like you do at a restaurant? If a restaurant already has delivery fee charge, does that impact the amount you tip?

Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Like $3-$4.

The delivery does take away from that.

But that is normally close to 20% of the bill

We're usually in the $4-$5 range which is also about 20%. It seems like delivery fee goes directly to the restaurant and not the individual driver, so that doesn't impact the tip for me either.
