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
Delivery people get 100% of tips, which can help make a big difference in their lives. A little extra really goes a long way.
Frequently asked questions
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 going the extra mile, like delivering a party-size order or climbing lots of stairs, it would be nice to add a few extra bucks.
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.
