Walmart pickup. Is there tipping?

When using the drive to Walmart and pickup your groceries does the website ask if you want to tip?

 

Same question for the new grocery delivery service.

I did curbside pick up at WM a few days ago and tips are not allowed.  Grocery store delivery in my area allows for a tip to be added to the online order.

@Mindy D. No tipping.  I went yesterday and it was a big mess.  I think many workers didn't show up for work.  There weren't even parking spots for all those wanting to pick up groceries.   You can check in right before your time but when you get there, call the phone number listed on the signs, tell them you're picking up an order for Mindy and give them the number of your parking space (on the sign).  People were not doing this, and they'll sit there all day.  Most got there before I did, and I got mine and left while they sat.

You can also use the walmart app to check in.

No tipping allowed at WM grocery pickup. Also, if it were, you’d probably want to tip the person that picked your groceries, too, and that is not the person who brings them to the car.

 

I’ve never used the delivery but I suspect tipping is not allowed there either.

 

I love WM pickup. And other, similar services from local stores. My shopping habits have changed and I save so much time this way! I work full time and don’t want to be spending my non-work time wandering around stores even post-pandemic.

@pinkcrystal.  Doesnt mean a thing unless you call when you get there.  They don't know where you are.

@LilLadyNJ When you say grocery store delivery in your area are you referring to WALMART grocery delivery?

On the app it lets you put the number space you are in and color of your vehicle.  Yes, it does tell them exactly where you are.

@Kachina624 @In my area they just started fresh grocery delivery and items are priced the same as in store but their website says nothing about tipping. If I can get delivery for the same cost as pickup than that's great. That's what I'm trying to find out. If I have a $300 order, 20% tip is $60. That's what I wind up with when I order from Instacart at Publix. It's adding up.

Re: Walmart pickup. Is there tipping?

I use both Walmart pick-up and delivery. No tipping is allowed at pick-up but tipping is allowed with delivery. I just pay and tip on my app. The delivery has really been a God send for me. I never liked Walmart but they seem like they really stepped up their game during the pandemic. I have not been in the store though. I applaud them in Florida for requiring masks in the store. I do feel bad for the workers in the pick-up, they work very hard and are not allowed to take tips. I got to know them when I was going there weekly until recently when I started the delivery.

I like the delivery. The person leaves the groceries by my door and I don't have to have any human interaction. I know that sounds weird but I like it because of the pandemic. 

One of my friends used insta cart at 3 stores and she only received 1 order. I think insta cart has problems but I have never used them. 

I will probably make 1 trip to Publix before Christmas to get some things that Walmart has not had. I was a faithful Publix shopper before the pandemic.
