Similarly, how much should I tip for Whole Foods delivery?

If you were to opt for Prime Now deliveries for all your grocery purchases, you would spend around $30 a month minimum just tipping your delivery driver, if we assume an average tip amount of $5. That's a lot for just not having to go to the grocery store.

do Amazon drivers know if you tip? Unfortunately no. They can only see that they got tipped. So If they deliver to 5 customers in a shift, they will only know if they get tipped, but they won't know who it was.

Additionally, should I tip Amazon delivery?

Only drivers who deliver for Amazon's grocery service or its Prime Now offering — which brings household goods to customers in two hours or less — can receive tips through the company's app. “Sounds great, but that $18 [an hour] guarantee could be all from customer tips while Amazon chips in zero.”

What is a good tip for grocery delivery?

According to Jorie Scholnik, an etiquette expert, that calls for a tip. “Tipping 10-15 percent is a good start,” she says. “I usually give the delivery person 15 percent if a delivery charge is not included.” If the weather is bad, The Emily Post Institute recommends tipping a driver 15-20 percent.

Does Amazon steal tips?

The thing is, Amazon is technically not stealing tips and it's inappropriate to tell customers about it either way. What they are doing is adjusting the base pay rate according to demand. They still guarantee at least $18 per hour paid to drivers, but the way they get to that $18 has changed.

It counts customer tips toward that minimum, rather than on top of it. DoorDash pays more than $1 per delivery when the customer doesn't leave a big enough tip to meet the guaranteed minimum it sets. If that minimum is $10 and you tip $5, then DoorDash kicks in the $1 base plus an additional $4.
