    You can offer $5 tip i.e. 10% of the bill, at any circumstances. If you are ordering large quantities of pizza, (for example 15 pizzas for some party), tipping $5 seem very low, instead give $20 (or 15% of the bill, excluding tax).   This calculator lets you to precisely gauge how much you should tip the person. Bear in mind that most delivery persons have to cover bike or gas expenses and a bigger tip may get you a faster service.

    • $3 for smaller or under $20 orders
    • 10% or below for mediocre service
    • 15% for larger orders
    • 20%+ for amazing service
