Tips are optional but a great way to show your shoppers appreciation and recognition for their excellent service. 100% of your tip goes directly to the shopper delivering your order. 

Instacart suggests a default tip based on several factors, such as order attributes and your tip history. We suggest a default tip during bad weather. 

You can modify the tip while placing an order or after delivery. However, you can’t modify the tip while the order is in progress. You can increase your tip up to 14 days after delivery or reduce your tip up to 2 hours after delivery.
