Most of us love to eat pizza and often crave for it whenever we are hungry. Usually, when we order pizza, the pizza supplier sends their delivery man to our residence as per the time schedule agreed by us.

However, when the pizza delivery person arrives to deliver the pizza, we often wonder how much tips should we pay him. Though it is not obligatory but not paying tips to a delivery person seems rude.

It will be much better to pick up from the pizza store if you don’t wish to offer tips.

In most of the uptown pizza delivery, the supplier also charges certain amount based on your order as delivery charge upfront.

However, in many cases they may not be sharing the delivery charges with the delivery man who is taking all the trouble to deliver you the pizza at your door as per the agreed time.

Why tipping matters?

Usually, these pizza delivery people are paid his salary by the pizza vendor as per the minimum wage rule, however most of these delivery people earn more from their tips. In case the hourly wage and tips earned is not equal to federal minimum wage then their employer must pay the balance amount.

That is the reason most of the vendors and restaurants charge the delivery fee so that they can compensate the delivery person in case they do not get sufficient tips. Therefore, by paying your tips will ensure that their minimum wage condition will be met.Additionally, the delivery man also needs to pay for the fuel cost, uniform maintenance cost, insurance and also maintenance cost of the wear and tear of their vehicle. So, to say that the job of pizza delivery man is not at all a lucrative job.

Therefore, the tips that you pay matters a lot to them.

What to do in case delivery is bad?

There may be a chance that delivery may be too late or you received a stale or cold pizza. In such case, perhaps you may not like to pay any tip, however it will be better to call the restaurant or pizza vendor instead of penalizing the delivery man.

There can be every possibility that delivery man may not be responsible for the delay at all. The chances are that the person who packed or prepared the pizza must have done some mistake or the delivery man was asked to deliver to many places.
