    Great article. Thanks!
    I tried printing this out (from an iPhone) and it was 102 pages in length. Any way you could fix the formatting? I’d love to print out that last section regarding the tipping calculator. Thx!

    First Great Article!

    Second, trying to sign up for your blog but keep getting an error message. How do I get your updates?

  3. This is a fantastic article and boy did I learn a thing or two. 🙂

    Great article! Would you consider updating it since Instacart has changed the pay structure and shoppers no longer get paid per item plus a delivery commission?

      Hi Kelly, thanks for the comment. Yes, I will look at updating it. Now it’s just a combination of item and delivery that make up the estimate.

    Great article!

    I recently started using Instacart through Publix locally. I’ve found it to be an incredible time-saver plus I despise grocery shopping. My last delivery was $150 in groceries so I tipped $35 through the app (just tip, not counting the fees). It’s worth $35 or more to me to not have to get dressed, drive to the store, shop, wait in line, etc.

    I tend to over tip for services where the provider is not directly compensated in a meaningful way, like waiter/waitress, barber/beautician, and delivery people — pretty much any job where the “perk” is getting to keep the tip.

      That’s great Sean! Definitely a time saver! Keep in mind that Walmart now provides grocery delivery in some locations that does not add any markup and charges a nominal delivery fee.

    Thanks for the advice. I’m getting used to being in a wheelchair so getting out is difficult. I’ve ordered groceries for the first time and was a little lost on the appropriate protocol. Cash tip. Got it.

      Hi Jenni – thanks for the comments. So glad that grocery delivery services are assisting you during this difficult period.
