Great side hustle, and a worthwhile time investment.

I’ve been shopping for a month now and have done about 25 batches, a lot of doubles in there- and I am pleased with the process! Thank you for providing jobs! The guaranteed pay and gas coverage is something to really be appreciated, and makes a huge difference in my opinion. It gives shoppers some peace of mind in knowing they won’t be under-compensated when it comes to a large batch with a lot of replacements, extra time, and/or a far off delivery. I’m willing to take that extra time & care to satisfy a customer’s order knowing that the company takes all of this into account.

My only suggestion is to keep improving the app! It is tiresome to have to go through several pages of ‘suggested replacements’ etc when you have already spoken with the customer and they want a refund for an item. I understand not wanting to incentivize shoppers to just refund everything- but an experienced shopper wants the option to either manually select a replacement item or refund the item on the FIRT PAGE. The several pages of suggestions take an unnecessarily long time to click through especially for people with a low phone battery or with an older phone with slightly longer load times.

Overall I’m very satisfied with the user experience, and will continue to use the app myself and recommend it to others. Thank you. :)

Items that are not available

When I am shopping for someone and the item isn’t there I’ve checked the shelves and check the shelves and I say I can’t find it, and the screen comes up for me to check again because somebody got it 4 hours before I was there kind of makes me think you’re telling me I’m stupid and look again. I don’t like it when that happens. Often there’s an item called for and I look and I look, and when I bend over and look down under, there it is the last one way back in the corner and I get that item. I didn’t bend over and look because you told me somebody found one for hours ago, I bend over and look because I am a very persistent Shopper. And if I find that item later, in the store on an end cap I go back and I put down that I found it and get it for them. It just makes me angry when a machine tells me I’m stupid like a little child to go look again. If you look at the length of some of my shops you’ll know that I don’t just zip through and not find stuff. I have a lots of shops that are well under the time in which I should have shopped them, and gotten everything on their list. Then there are ones where there are refunded items because they weren’t available and in those cases usually my time is quite long. I’ve had shops were I spent 15 minutes trying to find somebody to help me, just show me where this was supposed to be before I give up on an item. Thank you for your time and listening to my RANT!

On Demand is Great!!

I Absolutely love the switch to On-Demand Sunday’s I have church and family time and we go to church at 8:00am and church is an hour long so if i wanted to have a slight chance of getting hours I would have to leave church 10 min early and go outside and some how I would still end up on a waiting list so not to mention how embarrassing it was walking out early because I don’t bring my phone in with me. So I personally love the change to on demand wake up get ready open the app and immediately head to work and than when I’m done, I’m done no consequences I just go home. So thank you Instacart I fully support your decision and if anyone wants to throw a fit it’s very obvious that they can thank all the inconsistent people signing up for hours and than either bailing an hour or 2 befor there shift or bailing and not even saying anything. That may not be a big deal to anyone else but that’s money Instacart is loosing because I guarantee it’s a minimum of a half an hour by the time someone accepts the hours and gets out the door and in a position to accept an order and that’s 30 minutes of unsatisfied customers trying to make an order or what should have been delivered at 4:30 to make dinner at 5:00 is now not showing up u til 5:00 messing up there schedule possibly convincing them that they shouldn’t use Instacart. But anyways.. Good job Team Instacart is all I have to say I really like what you all have done!
