Instacart Shopper (In-Store Only)

Mission: Simplify Grocery Shopping

Instacart is the leading grocery delivery service in North America, aiming to make grocery shopping effortless, affordable, and accessible to everyone. As an In-Store Shopper, you'll play a vital role in fulfilling customers' grocery orders.

Start Earning Quickly and Set Your Schedule

With Instacart, you'll be able to start earning quickly and work on your preferred schedule. As you receive orders through an app on your smartphone, you'll then hand-select the customer's order in-store and stage the order for pick-up.

How Is This Different From Other Instacart Shopper Roles?

Known as the "In-Store" role, this role places you at a specific store for a specific time frame that you choose to accept, so you can pick items off the shelves for customer orders. Instacart also offers the Instacart Shopper - Full-Service role. Unlike the Full-Service role, the In-Store role offers a specific, predictable hourly wage and does not require access to a vehicle. You take on specific shifts week after week. The Full-Service role requires access to a vehicle, but is more flexible: you can start and stop working as you please.

Requirements to Become a Full-Service Shopper

  • Must be 18 years old or older.
  • Eligible to work in the United States.
  • Consistent access to and ability to effectively use a recent smartphone (iPhone 6s / Android 5.0 or newer).
  • Ability to lift 30 lbs
