My dad used to deliver pizzas as a part time job to escape my mother. He said 2 bucks was the average and he as fine with it if I recall.
I tip around 2-3 bucks myself on a 30 dollar order. My food always comes fast and hasn't been wrong yet.

Of course I live in Central Ohio, not NYC or anyplace with a higher cost of living.

Hi Lasto,
In my case, the gentleman that delivers to my home frequently is developmentally disabled so I doubt he would be able to do or have available to him, a large variety of jobs. Additionally, most delivery people in my area are high school or college kids just trying to make a little extra money for college or car payment-just a stepping stone in their lives-like most of us have at one time or another. I highly doubt this is a long term career goal for most. LOL

When I was delivering, I never got reimbursed for gas, so it's nice to pay for that at least. And if you tipped, you got your food faster. Delivery people remember the good houses... and the bad.

Nothing.

Tipping seems much more prevalent in the US compared with the UK.

That is so very true! The quoted, estimated delivery time is 30-45 minutes...we always get ours delivered in 20-30...they know (and remember) we tip well.

If the delivery person is professional and polite, I'll tip 15% rounded to the nearest dollar. If pizza dude parks his four door rice burner on my front lawn and stinks of bud...no tip for him!

We usually get ours in 15 minutes. Now having worked in a Pizza Place in my teen's I know it takes 7-8 minutes for a Pizza to cook. So we quite literally get it out of the oven.

Normally we have Carlos deliver our pizza. He has delivered it every time in the 19 months we have been living here except once. One time a girl delivered the pizza. It took 20 minutes. First words out of her mouth were "I am sorry its late but Carlos is sick today." She got a good tip as well.

tipping = great service

I just love it when they know your order before you order.

I agree with others...
when tipped, they deliver faster, they "communicate" with you, and best of all - they check and recheck your order before delivery.

FYI: Tipping a delivery person is usually 5%-10% of receipt.

Depending on the order. But if it's just for me, around $2.
