How to tip your Instacart shopper

Updated: Jan 30

Shoppers appreciate tips as a way of recognizing excellent service and 100% of your tip goes directly to the shopper delivering your order.

By default a 5% tip is suggested at checkout, with a minimum suggestion of $2 per individual store delivery. 

Tips are optional and the default tip may be adjusted at checkout or when rating an order after a delivery. You can add and change a tip amount up to 3 days after your delivery is complete. Your receipt will update accordingly.

Where do you modify the tip?

Select a tip amount and tap Save.
