I’ve been an independent contractor with Shipt since June, and I love it! I teach, so the flexibility is wonderful for me. I work more in the summer, and only one night a week during the school year. I will say that the $25/hr figure listed is definitely on the high end. That would only be after tips and with larger orders.
As a full time college student, Shipt is great to do here and there on weekends or in-between classes! $25 is towards the higher end but I’ve definitely made more than that from one shopping trip and have way made less! Overall enjoy working for them! Stressful at first but anyone can get the hang of it quick!!
I worked for Shipt last year. I didn’t find it worthwhile IMO. Depending on your market, jobs can be scarce and you have many Shipters fighting for the same job. Also, some insurance companies will not cover these types of jobs if you get in an accident while working. I probably made $12-$15/hr, but it all depends on the size and value of the order. Also, make sure you have a GREAT phone battery! You will need to be in constant contact with the customer, and you will go from full battery to NOTHING in no time flat.
I’ve been a Shipt shopper for 3 years since they first launched. The money used to be great consistently, but now they have overhired so many other shoppers that it’s hard to make the kind of money we used to. Is it a nice side gig for some extra cash? Yes. But would I quit my day job for it? No. I would say the pay does average out to be about $20/hour, but in my area there’s not enough shops to work consistently at that pay rate. Overall, not a bad way to make some extra cash, but cannot be relied on for a full time income.
I was a Shipt shopper for about five months. It started out really good and I was making probably $20-25 per hour, but then they over hired shoppers so there was a lot of competition for the jobs. How much you make depends on how large your order is and how much you are tipped. I found that only about half of the shops I did would tip. Toward the end of the time I shopped for them, when they didn’t tip I often only made about $8 per hour. The shops I was offered usually paid around $8-12 and tips averaged about $5. I had to stop shopping with them due to a health issue, otherwise I would still be shopping, even with the lower wages.
