A pop up will indicate that you give a tip and/or rate the shopper (it is important to note that this is not compulsory). However, if there is no pop up, you can click on the “order” icon and select the order you would like to leave a tip for.

Is There A Specific Amount To Tip Shoppers

There is no specific amount to tip a shopper both online and with cash. Beautiful thing is, in the app or site, you are given a possible amount to give as a tip, but if you want to give something outside the choices provided, you can do so by clicking the “other” button and you can set a customized tip. It is preferable that you give a tip of at least 15% of the total amount of goods requested for, in cases where you do not like the services rendered by the shopper but still want to give a tip, you can give 10%.
