pizza company dominoes brings in a delivery charge of up to £2 – and many customers aren’t happy.

Domino’s, which previously charged no postage, now charges the £2 fee on orders under £35 in some stores.

But many fans of the American pizza brand accepted Twitter to vent their anger at the surcharge.

Sophie wrote: “Domino’s are so sneaky since when do they charge £2 for delivery.”

Jeni B wrote: “I gave up my pizza because I found that only a very small portion of your new delivery fee is passed on to your drivers! Note that the amount I paid to PJ’s includes a £2 donation Ukraine And I still got free shipping…”

Another Twitter user said, “Just noticed that Domino’s has started charging for delivery, not cheap as it is to look at the competition.”

Joshi wrote: “I always tip delivery drivers £2 so I was very surprised @dominoes _UNITED KINGDOM just automatically added £2 for delivery. This is my first time and I will not pay £4 for delivery lest the driver get the usual tip which is frustrating.”

A Twitter account has also been set up dedicated to the £2 fee – dubbed Remove Domino’s Delivery Fee.

A spokesman for Domino’s said: “We introduced a small delivery fee because Domino’s, like many companies, is facing increased labor, fuel and food costs. Our fees are low compared to many of our competitors who face the same pressure and already charge for delivery.

“Our focus is on continuing to deliver fresh, hot pizzas to our customers and maintaining the level of service they know and love. The introduction of a small delivery fee will allow us to continue doing this while covering rising fuel and food costs.”

They added: “Delivery charges, minimum spend and the threshold for free delivery are all set by the stores as we are a franchise and prices have always been set by them. Most of our stores charge less than £2, with some customers getting a charge as low as 99p.”

The fast-food chain said each Domino’s store can decide whether to charge for delivery, setting minimum spend and thresholds for free delivery.

The company employs 30,000 people in the UK and Ireland.

Domino’s sold seven pizzas per second between July and September last year, with a record of 13 per second on July 3.

Last year, Domino’s ruffled its feathers when one of its Japanese restaurants invented it Fish and chips pizza – who fans said managed to insult both England and Italy at the same time.

Ingredients listed include crispy fish and chips, lemon, potato slices and basil with a tartar sauce and tomato sauce.

A full-size fish and chip pizza from Domino’s is available for ¥3,599, which is £23.

Ingredients listed include crispy fish and chips, lemon, potato slices and basil with a tartar sauce and tomato sauce.

People were divided, and some felt insecure about the whole lemon slices containing the rind of the sour fruit.

It caused such an uproar that the official account for Domino’s in Japan apologized after one man jokingly tweeted, “Japan Dominos invented a dish that offends both England and Italy.”

The official account replied: “We’re sorry our fish and chip pizza caused so much trouble. We find them quite tasty.
