Shipt Shoppers set their own schedules according to their busy lives! They shop for and deliver groceries to Shipt's members within a requested time frame. Scheduling, accepting orders, and shopping orders are all done through the Shipt Shopper app.
There is no up-front cost for applying to be a Shipt Shopper. Once you become an approved Shipt Shopper, you will be responsible for covering the cost of your gas, data usage, etc. However, as an independent contractor, you can file many of these expenses when you do your taxes! Consult a tax professional for more information regarding these expenses.
Shipt shoppers are independent contractors and are paid per order. You'll be offered orders, each with an estimated pay that is based on how long it takes to complete the order. Typically, it takes one hour to complete an order, and each order can pay up to $22! Payment is received via direct deposit every Friday for the work completed the previous Monday through Sunday.

Absolutely! As an independent contractor, you have complete control over your schedule. If you want to take a break, be it for a short or long period of time, you can do that with no trouble. That flexibility is one of the many benefits of working as a Shipt Shopper!
You can! Shipt Shoppers choose the areas in which they are willing to deliver. You will receive offers for orders that are in that specific area, and can choose which of the orders you take as well!
There is no minimum (or maximum) requirement for the number of orders you have to take per week, per month, or per year. Shipt Shoppers are independent contractors. As such, they choose how many orders to take!
Shipt Shoppers choose how many orders they will shop. Shipt Shoppers select within the shopper app the days, times, and areas in which they are able to shop. This schedule can be set same-day or as early as a week in advance! Shoppers will receive offers for orders based on their scheduled availability.
Shipt Shoppers purchase each order using a prepaid card provided by Shipt. This card will be funded with the amount of your order (plus a little more for unexpected extras) before your delivery window begins. When you go to check out, the money will already be on the card! New shoppers can expect to receive that card along with their first Shipt Shopper shirt in their shopper package.
Shipt does not withhold any taxes from our shoppers' weekly paychecks. As independent contractors, Shipt Shoppers are responsible for filing their own taxes. Those who earn above a certain amount will receive a 1099 from Shipt at the end of the year.
At this time, Shipt does not reimburse for mileage. However, this can be tracked and filed with your taxes at the end of the year. Consult a tax professional for more information.
Unfortunately, they can not. At this time, Shipt Shopping is a solo enterprise. Shipt Shoppers may not bring anyone with them, including another approved Shipt Shopper. Only the approved Shipt Shopper who has claimed the order is permitted to shop for and deliver to the member.
At this time, we do not offer the option for members to request a specific shopper. The idea is that each shopper will provide the same excellent experience to all of our members!
What you will do upon delivery will depend on the member! Some will request you come inside, others will have you hand them the groceries at the door. Whatever the case, handle your interaction with the member with kindness and understanding. You are acting as the face of Shipt, so be sure to represent us well!
Once you are approved, you will receive an invitation to join our Shipt Shopper Hub, which has lots of helpful information about getting started! You will also receive an invitation to an optional online course where you can learn more about using the Shipt Shopper app.
