Our take on tipping
An amazing food delivery experience wouldn’t be possible without the delivery people who grab the goods for you. Food delivery is service-based, much like waiting tables at a restaurant.
You don’t have to tip, but it’s always appreciated
If I give a tip, where does it go?
100% of tips go directly to your delivery person. They’re the ones going to the restaurant, waiting in line, and taking a journey so you don’t have to.
Is tipping required?
Tipping is always optional. However, we encourage you to tip every time you order with Uber Eats. Your delivery person puts in a lot of effort, and that deserves a little extra.
How much should I tip?
Find our tip recommendation in the app when you’re ordering and for one hour after your delivery. For extra effort, like delivering a party-size order or climbing lots of stairs, it would be nice to add a few extra dollars.
Is a tip separate from other delivery fees?
Yes, tips are separate from other fees. They are a reflection of service, a great way to thank delivery people. Tips are always added on top of total earnings.
