How Do You Tip Amazon Fresh Drivers?
When shopping on the Amazon Fresh website, you can change and adjust your tip amount during checkout.
Tipping is quite simple, simply:
- Sign in to your Amazon Fresh account and start adding items to your cart.
- Once ready, head to the cart in the top righthand corner of your screen and click it to checkout.
- During the checkout process, you’ll see the price layout after entering your shipping address and payment information.
- Look to the bottom of your subtotal, and you’ll see where it says “Tip.”
- The amount will say $5 automatically, and if you do not choose to change your tip amount, this is the dollar amount that will be processed for your driver.
You are free to change this amount during checkout or at any time within 24 hours of the delivery. You can remove, lower, or give a larger tip here.
My Amazon Fresh Account Doesn’t Have A Tip Option
If you don’t see an option to leave a tip when checking out, it is likely you are using a gift card or EBT card to process your order. In these cases, you won’t have an option to leave a tip. You can fix this easily by using a credit or debit card for the tip.
Gift cards can only be redeemed for Amazon products and EBT cards can only be used for SNAP EBT eligible items, thus the money cannot go to the drivers.
However, you have the option of paying for part of the order with your gift card or EBT and putting the rest on credit/debit card.
Once you link a credit card to the account, you’ll see the ability to leave a tip for the remaining balance.
Although tipping isn’t obligatory with Amazon Fresh drivers, a tip of $3-$1 is highly appreciated and goes a long way.
Amazon Fresh delivery drivers receive 100% of all tips and this can make a big difference in their income.
