Shipt Shoppers have total control over when they’d like to work, as well as which parts of their area they’d like to shop. 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 cost to apply to become a Shipt Shopper. Once you become an approved Shipt Shopper, we will provide you with a Shipt card and a Shipt shirt at no cost.
As a 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 as 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. Orders will be offered with an estimated pay based on the effort it takes to complete the order.
Payment can be accessed instantly once per day* or received via direct deposit every Friday for the work completed the previous Monday through Sunday. This will include pay for orders and 100% of any tips received.
*Note: Shoppers must agree to the Stripe Connect terms and conditions in the app as well as have at least one successful weekly payout from Shipt in order to access Instant Pay.

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. When you apply, you select a large area called a “Metro” where you will be shopping. These are usually entire metropolitan areas.
After you become a shopper, you can select areas called "Zones" within that metro to shop in. You will receive offers for orders that are in your zones, and can choose which of the orders you take as well!
There is no minimum requirement for the number of orders you have to accept per week, per month, or per year. Shipt Shoppers are independent contractors. As such, they choose how many orders to take!
Shipt does not withhold any taxes from our shoppers' weekly paychecks.
As independent contractors, Shipt Shoppers are responsible for filing their own taxes. Shipt will send a 1099 form to shoppers who earn above a certain amount 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.
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.
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. If you have any questions that aren’t answered, you can contact our customer service team 24/7 via live chat on the app or via phone at (205) 502 2500.
At this time, the recruiting team is available exclusively via email. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
