Did Amazon Fresh Drivers see the prompt?
Amazon drivers can see tip subtotals at the end of the day, but they can’t see individual tips offered by customers. This allows customer privacy while allowing Amazon employees to know how much money they make on any given day.
Many customers are uncomfortable letting the driver see the tip amount before delivery.
Additionally, Amazon Fresh customers can change their tip within 24 hours of delivery.
By allowing employees to view subtotals at the end of the day, Amazon Fresh drivers are able to know how much they earn, without knowing who tipped and who didn’t.
Who gets tipped for Amazon Fresh delivery?
Customer tips belong exclusively to Amazon Fresh drivers. This greatly improves driver earnings, as Amazon typically offers its drivers a lower baseline.
If possible and you are satisfied with the delivery service provided by Amazon Fresh, it is recommended that you leave a tip, thank you very much.
How do you tip Amazon’s new driver?
When shopping on the Amazon Fresh website, you can change and adjust the tip amount at checkout.
Tipping is easy, it’s simple:
- Log in to your Amazon Fresh account and start adding items to your cart.
- When you’re ready, head to the cart in the top right corner of the screen and click it to checkout.
- During the checkout process, you will see the price layout after entering your shipping address and payment information.
- Look at the bottom of the subtotal and you’ll see where “Tips” are.
- The amount will automatically appear as $5, which is the amount that will be processed for your driver if you do not choose to change the tip amount.
You can change this amount at any time during checkout or within 24 hours of delivery. Here you can remove, lower or give a bigger hint.
My Amazon Fresh account doesn’t have a tip option
If you don’t see the option to leave a tip at checkout, it’s likely that you’re using a gift card or EBT card to process your order. In these cases, you will not have the option to leave a tip. You can easily fix this by tipping with a credit or debit card.
Gift cards can only be redeemed for Amazon products, and EBT cards can only be used for SNAP EBT eligible items, so the money cannot go to the driver.
However, you can choose to pay for part of your order with a gift card or EBT and deposit the rest on your credit/debit card.
Once you’ve linked your credit card to your account, you’ll see that you can leave a tip for the remaining balance.
