Job Description

Shop and deliver groceries and everyday essentials with Instacart. Set your own schedule, be a household hero, and earn money quickly.

The two options available are Full-Service Shopper (own hours with no maximum cap) or In-Store Shopper (maximum of 29 hours per week). The 29 hours per week is not a guarantee and will fluctuate depending on customer demand.

No matter which option you choose, almost all of your earnings are delivered on a weekly basis. This is pretty standard for jobs in the gig economy, and allows shoppers to access money without having to wait weeks or months to get it.

Additionally, tipping is a part of Instacart as with any other delivery service, so customers are offered the option of tipping through the app.
