While not all companies allow tips for their employees, Walmart allows and encourages customers to offer tips to their grocery delivery workers.
You can also rest assured that when you offer a tip to a Walmart delivery worker, that worker gets to keep 100% of their tip (minus what they might pay through taxes).
Figuring out how much to tip a grocery delivery worker isn’t an exact science. While tipping 15-20% is fairly standard for restaurant and service workers, the custom tends to look a bit different with delivery workers.
The general consensus seems to be that grocery delivery workers expect to receive a $5-$10 tip for each order delivered.
The amount of money you choose to offer your delivery worker might depend on factors like:
- How many items/bags of items they deliver
- The size/weight of the items
- How satisfactory of a job they do while delivering your groceries
Generally speaking, if you were satisfied with the grocery delivery worker’s performance, it’s kind to offer at least a $5 tip.
