Choose Batches Carefully

This is really one of the most basic Instacart shopper trick, but it’s vital for protecting your hourly wage! Now, there isn’t a consensus here between shoppers for what Instacart batches you should accept, but two factors worth considering are order distance and how many items are in the batch. Some shoppers only accept batches with 30 items or more, while others aren’t so selective. However, whatever your style, there’s probably no point in driving 20 minutes out of the way to complete a small batch…the base pay and tip just won’t be there to make it worth your while. Ultimately, this is a skill you learn over time, so I’d start by accepting most batches until you figure out which ones aren’t worth your time.
