    Shipt Shopper

    • Full Time
    • Anywhere

    If making money while driving and grocery shopping sounds like the perfect gig, you can help busy families get groceries by becoming a Shipt shopper or driver.

    Grocery delivery services are popping up left and right in the gig economy as the demand for convenience continues to grow. This means you have more opportunities to earn than ever.

    Whether you’re driving for grocery delivery service Instacart, or another competitor, you can make money on your own schedule — all you need to do is take your pick and sign up.

    Responsibilities of a Shipt Shopper

    The people who fulfill demand on Shipt’s extensive grocery delivery network — officially known as Shipt Shoppers — are the independent contractors who fulfill every grocery delivery request that users place on the Shipt app.

    As requests are submitted, they’ll show up on your Shipt Shopper app for any local driver to claim and add to their schedule as much as a week in advance.

    Once you’ve claimed a request, your job is to serve two major purposes:

    • Shop: When you arrive at your local grocery store, you can pull up your Shipt Shopper app to view the items that your user has ordered. You’ll be responsible for locating these items and checking out with your prepaid Shipt card.
    • Deliver: Shipt Shoppers double as delivery drivers who bring the purchased groceries to users’ front doors. This step should be completed within the user’s scheduled delivery window, which you’ll see before accepting a request.

    A typical order takes up to an hour to complete. Most shoppers choose to maximize their time by accepting delivery requests within a close proximity, so they can complete each order as efficiently as possible.


    • Flexible scheduling: Work part-time or full-time by setting your own hours and choosing orders that fit your lifestyle.
    • Competitive earnings: Receive a commission based on the orders you fulfill, with the potential to earn tips for exceptional service.
    • Weekly payments: Get paid every week directly to your bank account.
    • Opportunities for growth: Increase earnings by taking on more orders or working during peak times.


    • Must be at least 18 years old.
    • Have a valid U.S. driver’s license and auto insurance.
    • Reliable vehicle, 1997 or newer.
    • Knowledge of produce selection with the ability to lift up to 40 pounds.
    • Smartphone capable of running the latest Shipt app.
    • Pass a background check.

    Application Process

    The Shipt application process is very straightforward and does not take long to complete.

    1. Sign up through the Shipt website by entering your basic information and confirming your eligibility.
    2. Pass the interview process, which may include an orientation or training session online.
    3. Download the Shipt app, set up your profile, and start accepting shopping orders.
    4. Shop and deliver groceries, providing high-quality service to Shipt customers.

    As a Shipt Shopper, you have the freedom to earn on your terms. Whether you’re looking for a steady job or just want to earn some extra money on the side, Shipt offers a flexible way to achieve your financial goals.

    How Much Do Shipt Shoppers Make?

    Shipt states that experienced shoppers earn an average of $22 per hour, while earnings for all drivers range from $15 to $25 per hour.

    This means you’re guaranteed to earn more — often significantly more — than minimum wage and how much Uber drivers make.

    When working as a Shipt driver and Shopper, you earn based on every trip you complete, with a commission rate of $5 plus 7.5% of the total order cost.

    Shipt Shoppers also receive 100% of the tips they receive from the customers they deliver to.

    Thanks to this pay structure, you can strategically increase your pay by accepting larger orders or completing requests faster, while also providing friendly service.

    However, be aware that your pay does not include any car maintenance costs.

    As an independent contractor, you’re responsible for all of your own expenses and do not receive benefits like paid time off or health insurance.

    You’ll also have to pay self-employment taxes (15.3% of your earnings) on top of your personal income tax, since Shipt doesn’t withhold any income for your Social Security or Medicare taxes throughout the year.
