They're pretty much all contract drivers now which means they get to see the tip before accepting the order.
Not around here, at least. I drive sometimes. You don't really have to see the exact tip to get an idea of how much they tipped. You know what they ordered and how much they paid so it gets easy to guesstimate.

Personally, I don't differentiate between the delivery fee and the tip. If it's worth picking up it's worth picking up. DD will try to give you $2 to drive a $10 McDonald's order across town. Either a new driver will pick it up because he doesn't know any better or the price will increase until it's worth it.

The only thing that makes driving worth it for me is I live near a military base and have an ID so I automatically get $4 added on to every order to on-post.

Despite the tipping issue/s, DoorDash has an awesome refund policy.

Every time I've had issues, (not that many) DoorDash has refunded me for the entire meal including the tip.

The last time was Firehouse Subs. Big order. The driver forgot all the dessert. Got compensated for the entire meal, tip, and received extra credit.

I use it because I have credits for it on my credit card. I would never order it just because I didn't want to go get my own food.

re: Why does Door Dash/Uber Eats want you tip a percentage of order?
I read a discussion the other day between some DoorDashers. They said there is an unwritten rule that if the tip is not a minimum of $1 a mile based on the deliver distance, then they are not accepting it. In that case your food will sit and sit until somebody desperate accepts the delivery.

If you are having poor delivery service from these services, its likely because you are cheap.

I have never used one of these places, at least for delivery. I had a vendor send me a $50 Door Dash gift card and I went and picked it up so I could get 2 free lunches with it

I wonder if that leads to your food sitting. Door Dashers assume if its not tipped on the app then they are not getting a tip.

I don't ever have to tip, but I do, because I pay for good service, and am a decent human.
