Instacart is the North American leader in online groceries (and so much more) from a huge number of stores.
Our technology aims to make grocery delivery effortless and accessible to everyone. Full-service shoppers select orders through an app on their smartphone, shop the orders in a nearby store, and then deliver them to the customer's door.
Shopping on the Instacart platform is great for anyone looking for flexible, seasonal, entry-level, weekend, weekday, after-school, or temporary opportunities. As an Instacart Full Service Shopper, you can work more flexibly than a part-time job.
Anybody is welcome to sign-up, but you’ll likely be a great fit if you already provide services as a personal shopper or are involved in the grocery or transportation industries -- jobs like couriers, drivers, truck drivers, professional drivers, taxi drivers, and food delivery drivers will all have readily cross-applicable skills.
Instacart is committed to diversity and providing equal opportunities for independent contractors. Instacart considers qualified individuals without regard to gender, sexual orientation, race, veteran, disability status, or other categories protected by applicable law.
Instacart also values providing prospective contractors with a fair chance to pursue opportunities. Instacart evaluates criminal histories in accordance with this value and applicable local, state, and federal laws, and tailors any consideration of criminal histories to the requirements of the contract engagement sought.

Nevertheless, there are moments and areas, when you, as a shopper, may have to do what’s adequate in your specific situation. Some shops use self-checkout. Maybe, there’s a very extended line, and you don’t want to be unpunctual.
So, you’ll have to utilize your preference. If the manned checkout will eventually direct to a shorter period, that’s too. But, if there’s a big line, and you’re confident you could operate the self-checkout register fast, then go for it.
