Have you noticed that you can’t add a tip for the driver on your Walmart delivery order?
Read on to find out why you can’t tip on Walmart delivery. And what to do if this happens to you!
Across the country, Walmart delivery tips have been removed as an option on the app and Walmart.com, and there are 3 reasons why. Tipping is not available in your area, you are paying with an EBT or OCT card, or the value of your order is too low.
- You probably can’t tip on Walmart delivery because Walmart removed tipping in your area or your order amount is too low.
- You cannot tip on Walmart delivery when using an EBT or OCT card to pay.
- If you cannot tip online, the only option is to tip your driver in cash.
In this article, we will dive into the 3 reasons why you can’t tip on Walmart delivery. And, even more importantly, find out if you can still tip your driver.
The first reason why tipping is not available on your Walmart delivery order is that you are using an EBT or OCT card to pay.
These health benefit cards provided by the government mean that you can pay for your Walmart grocery delivery with food stamps.
However, when you use them, you will not receive the option to tip your driver. The funds on the account are not eligible for any purchases other than food and health supplies.
Next, it may be that Walmart made tipping unavailable in your area.
Now, while we know that Walmart has removed the option to tip in some regions, we really don’t know why.
Some reports claim that it’s because the company started paying higher wages to the drivers in those areas. But there is no clear-cut answer as to why Walmart suddenly removed the option to tip for some locations.
Finally, you might not be able to add a tip to your Walmart delivery order because the total purchase is too low.
Once again, Walmart has not commented on this reason. And we don’t fully understand why they removed tipping for small orders.
However, a user on Quora suggests that it may be due to the fact that large orders are often overlooked by drivers as they require more work.
Therefore, only allowing tipping for big orders encourages drivers to choose them.
No matter why you can’t tip on your Walmart delivery order, if you received the message “sorry, your order is no longer eligible for tipping; your tip has been removed,” you will certainly want to know what to do next.
If you want to tip your Walmart delivery driver and didn’t receive the prompt to do so online, the only option is to tip in cash.
When the driver arrives, you can simply give them what you think is a fair tip. And they will get to keep it in its entirety.
There are 3 likely reasons why you can’t tip on your Walmart delivery order.
First, you are paying with an EBT or OCT card. Second, tipping is not available in your area. And third, it may be that your order amount is too low.
If there is no option to tip the driver when you place your order with Walmart, the only way is to give the driver cash upon arrival.
