Porter tipping question

Ok, this may sound stupid, but I'm assuming since your bags arrive at your door, you tip the porters as soon as you leave your bags with them, correct?
Sorry if this a silly question.

Yes. You tip when you give them your bags.

They take the bags and assure that appropriate tags are attached (they have extra tags if you've failed to attach those that should have been sent to you.) Then you hand them the tip before you head to the check in line.

What is the customary tip - $1 to $2 per bag?

Yes, same as you'd tip at an airport.
