We encourage tipping as a way to show your shoppers appreciation and recognition for excellent service. 100% of your tip goes directly to the shopper delivering your order. 

Instacart suggests a default tip based on a number of factors, such as order attributes and your tip history. The minimum default tip is 5% of your order total.

You can modify the tip while placing an order and up to 24 hours after receiving your delivery.

You can modify the tip both while placing an order and after delivery is complete.
