Do You Tip Shipt Shoppers In 2024? How Much?

  • We suggest you tip Shipt shoppers; their earnings rely heavily on tips.
  • Tip 10-20% of the total bill; 15-20% for excellent service.
  • Tip via the Shipt app: Go to “Orders,” select your order, and leave a tip.
  • Shoppers see tips after delivery; you can adjust tips within the app.

Do You Tip Shipt Shoppers?

Yes, you should tip Shipt shoppers as their earnings often significantly depend on tips, similar to service industry workers like waiters or valets.

Tips can substantially increase their hourly rate and help offset vehicle and gas expenses.

Can Shipt Shoppers See Who Tips?

Yes, Shipt shoppers can see who tips and the amount of each tip after the order is completed.

The Shipt app displays the total earnings from each delivery, including base pay and tips, but there is a delay before this information is shown to the shopper.

How Much Should You Tip a Shipt Shopper?

You should typically tip a Shipt shopper around 10-20% of the total bill, similar to the service industry standard.

For exceptional service, a 15-20% tip is recommended, and for extraordinary generosity, up to 25%.

If the service was poor and it was the shopper’s fault, a tip is not necessary, but consider external factors that may not be the shopper’s fault before deciding to withhold a tip.

Remember, these tips contribute significantly to the shopper’s earnings and help compensate for their expenses and effort.

How to Tip on the Shipt App

You can tip a Shipt shopper during checkout or after delivery, but the tip details will only be visible to the shopper two hours after delivery.

You are able to adjust the tip post-delivery within the app, ensuring the shopper receives the full amount with no impact on future service pairing.

Here’s a simple tutorial on how to tip your Shipt shopper using the app:

  1. Open the Shipt app and log in.
  2. Navigate to the “Orders” section.
  3. Select the order you wish to tip on.
  4. Scroll to the “Rate Your Delivery” area and click the “Leave a Tip” button.
  5. Choose a preset percentage or select “Other Amount” for a custom tip.
  6. Confirm your tip amount and tap “Done.”

Remember, if you prefer to tip in advance, you can do so at the checkout stage. Your Shipt shopper will see the tip post-delivery, so there’s no need for immediate thanks.
