Instacart shoppers complete thousands of orders every day, delivering fresh groceries and household essentials to people who need a little extra time back in their schedules. At Instacart, we’re dedicated to creating features and opportunities that also fit around the rhythm of your life. Shoppers enjoy Instacart because of the flexibility it offers, and want that same flexibility when it comes to getting paid.

Starting today in select cities, shopper payments are available any day, any time, by using our new feature, Instant Cashout. We partnered with Stripe to build a solution that will let you get the cash you’ve earned through Instacart whenever you want. We understand there are times when shoppers need to get paid quickly, and with this new feature you don’t have to wait a week to get paid. Getting your earnings the same day can help pay for an unexpected bill, save up for something big, or fund a family outing. Instacart is committed to building more tools that work for you, and now you can cash out your earnings on your terms.

Getting started is easy

As part of this rollout, shoppers from Boston, MA to Bend, OR can add Instant Cashout with the tap of a button.

Today’s launch of Instant Cashout is a result of valued feedback from our shoppers. Here’s what one shopper who tested the feature had to say:

“Sometimes I need money right away, and Instant Cashout allows me to have that.” — Sonnie J

We look forward to making Instant Cashout available to more shoppers over the coming months and continuing to develop more features that fit around your life. All U.S. shoppers can expect to have access to Instant Cashout by June 2019 and will be informed by email when the feature is available in your area.
