How to calculate tip
A gratuity is a sum of money given by a client or customer to a service worker in addition to the normal price. Tipping is commonly given to certain service sector workers for a service performed or anticipated, as opposed to money offered for a product or as part of a purchase price. Depending on the country or location, it may or may not be customary to tip servers in certain fields. The exchange is typically irreversible, differentiating it from the reward mechanism of a placed order, which can be refunded.
Tips and their amount are a matter of social custom and etiquette, and the custom varies between countries and settings. In some locations tipping is discouraged and considered insulting, while in some other locations tipping is expected from customers. The customary amount of a tip can be a specific range of monetary amounts or a certain percentage of the bill based on the perceived quality of the service given.
The average tip varies depending on the industry, but one thing remains common. The tip should ultimate reflect the performance of the service provided. For something like food service this often starts at 10% for sufficient performance, and upwards of 30% for very excellent performance.
For something like a taxi, it’s often automatically calculated into your final bill, or suggested to you. This is the same in other industries as well.
Other industries it’s common for a standard flat charge no matter the cost. For instance, although not a rule, a general practice when buying drinks from a bartender is $1.00 per drink.
In the end, it’s really up to you how much you want to tip. Go as high or low as you feel the service warrants.
