Just about anyone anywhere can ask you for a tip these days.
Now, DoorDash is trying out a new system of delivery. You don’t have to include a tip if you don’t want to, when you order food and have it delivered by DoorDash.
Customers will see a pop-up disclaimer in the DoorDash app warning them that their food may take longer to arrive if they don’t include a tip in their payment.
That’s because delivery drivers can pick and choose the orders they want to pick up, often opting for the orders that include a nice tip.
The advisory is part of a DoorDash pilot program in some service areas. No word if it will become permanent.
