- Before accepting an order.
- Deliverers see the guaranteed minimum.

- But they don’t see the tip a customer has left until.
- After the delivery is finished.

- Why does his company use tipping?
How to tell if you’ve been tipped BEFORE accepting a DoorDash order?
If you choose to tip before delivery, the DoorDash driver will see your gratuity before delivering your order. When you use DoorDash, you may either offer a tip before or after the delivery. The Dasher sees the total amount he or she can earn for the trip when the delivery comes.
If you do not provide a tip on DoorDash, your order will go to a number of Dashers until someone accepts. In my area, the starting wage is $4. As a result, if you don’t tip, the offer screen will show $4. When the total of an order rises, the tip percentage decreases.
To be clear, there is no legal requirement that drivers get tips directly through the DoorDash app, and a cash tip may actually help the Dasher out by increasing his or her take-home pay. When you give your DoorDash driver in cash, he or she has no record of it.
Doordash has long had a reputation for hiding some customers’ recommendations. When the tip was greater than approximately $5, only five dollars of it would be included in the offer amount. To put it another way, when the tip was larger, you were more likely to receive a higher tip than what was offered.
Consider your DoorDash driver, like a restaurant server, as you read on. It’s common to tip at least 15% of the bill for service employees such as these, and the gratuity should be higher (around 20% or more) if the service is outstanding.
