About the job

Customers order groceries from their favorite local stores, and Shoppers handpick the things and deliver the order to them.

Shoppers receive a digital shopping list from customers then detect those items at an area grocery, before exposure at the customer's door with the products.

There are two different shopper roles with Instacart: full-service shopper and in-store shopper. Each has different benefits and requirements.

Full service shopper

  • Shop and deliver groceries
  • Independent contractors
  • Able to work on unlimited numbers of hours per week
  • You'll need a car with proper insurance coverage to complete deliveries
  • In store shopper

    Instacart is one of the most popular grocery delivery apps. It is best for you if you hate waiting in lines at the store. Instacart allows you to shop your favourite grocery stores from the comfort of your home, using your computer, tablet or smartphone. The groceries can be delivered to your doorstep in as little as an hour. You also have the option for your groceries to be delivered later on the day, the next day , or even in a few days.

    You even have a personal shopper who will choose all your produce and carefully select fresh items on your behalf. If your ordered item is out of stock, the shopper will find you a close replacement. Customers can even chat with their shoppers,so they have peace of mind that those mangoes they forgot to order can be added to the delivery.
