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.
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.
