...really? If you don't live in China, then yes, you should tip. He/she is a delivery person like any other food delivery person, treat them as such.

Are Chinese known for being stingy with tips? If yes, then no, don't tip. How is this even hard?

Thing is, they dont tip in china. The delivery guy is always some FOB who cant speak English anyway, and presumably a lot of their customers are also FOBs who dont tip anyway, or they are non-FOB Chinese Americans who are every bit as penny pinching, so they dont tip because they know they can get away with it with their FOB brethren.

I tip them, but it's still something to think about.

are you living in china? no, i didn't think so. regardless of whether or not it is customary to do so in their culture, it is practically expected in ours. should go without saying really.
