    Download the app, select your position at Instacart, set your schedule, start receiving orders.

    2) Why can’t I choose my hours on Instacart?

    If the app says ‘Pickup hours’ it means you can choose those hours to work. However, if it says ‘No hours available for pickup’ or ‘Unavailable’ it means other shoppers are helping then and you cannot choose those.

    No. Instacart pays only according to the number of orders a full-service shopper completes. If there are no orders completed the shopper only gets a base pay.

    No. Instacart provides its shoppers with a debit card with a pre-approved amount of money for a selected batch. You use that to pay for the orders.

    No. Instacart makes its payments to its shoppers weekly directly to their bank accounts.
