As we work to offer more batches for shoppers — and more choices for customers — we’re introducing 24/7 delivery, unlocking the ability to shop anytime is best for you. 24/7 delivery will be available from select retail partners who are open at all hours, including select locations at stores like 7-Eleven, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, and Safeway. We’re also extending our hours for retailers who may not be open 24/7, but are open later at night or early in the morning.

Many of these batches will be smaller, convenience-type orders, from folks who are craving a late-night snack, need a quick diaper run, or are missing a crucial ingredient for breakfast. These easy, quicker batches will let shoppers earn when you want to, 24 hours a day.

As always, you get to choose the batches you want to shop — so if you’d rather not shop at night, you never have to. In addition to standard safety precautions like wearing brightly colored clothing and making sure your car is fully functional, we have several safety resources available for you in the Shopper app. Some of these include emergency services calling that can connect you with 911, and safety incident reporting that lets you submit a report directly to our Trust & Safety team. We’re continuing to invest in shopper safety and look forward to introducing even more helpful functionality directly in the Shopper app to help you continue to earn safely.

We hope you enjoy having even more batches available to shop whenever is best for you. Thank you for being a part of the shopper community.
