Additional Fees

Be aware the the ‘service fee’, always 10% of your delivery amount, is going as an automatic tip to your shopper. If you leave a tip, be aware you are leaving the shopper an addition to the 10% already being allotted to them.

I was under the impression that they had stopped doing this because it’s so misleading?But anyways, the service fee (no matter what Instacart claims) is NOT a tip.

The only tips we get are the ones in the actual tip box.Personally, I appreciate cash tips the most but either one makes your shopper feel warm and fuzzy.


Totally false.I’m a shopper.

I only get tipped if U TIP ME! I work hard and go above and beyond for my customers. I also tell them... that 10% goes directly to Instacart.

I don’t see one dollar of it. They keep it, as well as the lies they sell to the customer re: prices? I’ve even shopped an order for a friend because I was the closer shopper in their area? I found coupons for their order and guess what?

Instacart kept that money!!!! The savings didn’t go to my friend. Totally shady. They upcharge their customers as well.

You do NOT PAY yhe same as in the store. False advertising at its finest. Tip me or not tip me? I still provide the same service.

The crooks?That’s Instacart completely.


This isn’t true. The shopper does not get 10% and only gets tips if you tip!


The 10% service fee does not go to the shopper.The service fee goes straight to Instacart.

The shoppers never see that money. Do your research on Instacart backlash from shoppers. Instacart led customers like you to believe that the service fee was a tip for service. This is not the case.

That is why Instacart clearly states the difference between the fee and tips.Be grateful and tip your shoppers.
