With Instacart group carts it's easy to shop with friends and family. In this post we will show how to create group cart, and share it.
How to set up a group cart:
In the app:
Tap the Shopping cart icon
Tap My Carts
Tap Create a cart
Tap Create a group cart
Tap Share to share the cart link with friends
On the website:
At the top right, click either Account or Hi, [Your Name]
From the drop-down menu, click Group carts
Click Create a group cart
Enter the email addresses of friends to invite to your cart. (These must be the email addresses associated with their Instacart account.)
How to join a group cart:
If you received an email invite to join a group cart. Click on Join Group Cart in the email, then log into your Instacart account to start shopping in the share cart.
How to access your group cart:
To access group cart, just tap or click the car icon, then tap or click My Carts. There you will be able to switch between personal carts, and group carts whenever you'd like.
How checking out works:
Right now there is currently no way the payment for the cart can be split between members. However, anyone with access to the group cart can check out and place the order using their account payment method.
Note for group carts with Express members:
Express benefits will only apply if the Express member checks out the group order.
