We know that you shop on the Instacart app to earn money quickly. That’s why as part of our new commitment of Ingredients to earn on your terms, we have changed the time customers have to decrease a tip from 24 hours to 2 hours, letting you have access to your earnings faster. 

How it works

  • When you deliver a batch, customers only have 2 hours after the time of drop off to decrease their tip. 
  • This means 2 hours after you drop off the batch, you’ll have access to your full earnings.
  • With this change, customers will have 2 weeks to increase tips. 
  • If a customer increases their tip, you’ll see these additional earnings in your account and can cash out immediately.

This update will be rolling out over the next several weeks.

Expanding your access to earnings

We’ve been piloting a number of new features to expand your access to earnings. 

  • Multi Store Batching – a new type of batch that includes orders from multiple stores, helping you earn more for your time and effort. By shopping from multiple stores, you’ll have the opportunity to earn more in less time, help additional customers, and earn multiple tips — all from a single batch.
  • Add Ons – we’ve developed a feature that allows you to accept a new order in addition to the one you’re already shopping, making the most of your time in the store.

This is only the beginning. We’re committed to providing you with the ingredients to earn on your terms so your shopping experience is as seamless as possible. We look forward to continuing to implement your feedback and developing new features that care for you, the way you care for your customers.
