Foodrunner is an app that connects you to customers who need groceries. You use the app to sign on, find orders, then shop and deliver those items to your customers. When you get paid, you can cash out instantly and you can earn even more with tips for great service.

When your background check has cleared and you’re approved to shop, you can sign on to shop and make money on your own schedule.
How much a shopper earns depends on their role type and other factors.
Shoppers get paid per batch that they complete. Foodrunner provides estimates for your earnings on every order as well as total earnings for the week. The amount you earn per batch of orders depends on the number of items, type of items, driving distance, and effort involved in shopping and delivering. You keep 100% of customer tips. You also get opportunities to earn extra through promotions Foodrunner runs.
As independent contractors, full-service shoppers have the flexibility to work as little or as often as they want. This means that total earnings potential depends on the individual.
In-store shoppers are Instacart employees who earn an hourly wage, detailed in the initial offer letter. In-store shoppers are scheduled for shifts based on personal availability, up to 29 hours each week.
In order to become a shopper, you must be at least 18 years of age, have legal authorization to work in the Canada, be able to lift up to 40lbs without accommodation, have regular access to a reliable car and have regular access to a smartphone capable of running the Foodrunner Shopper app. You must also pass a background check.
The first thing you’ll need to have on-hand is your contact information (the details on your driver’s license should cover this step). You will also need to have your social security number readily available. The sign up process will then ask you to set up direct deposit so you can get paid! You’ll need your banking information to complete this step.
Background checks normally process within 10 business days, but sometimes it can process much faster. Due to high volumes and temporary court closures, delays are possible. Learn more at the Help Center.
Not at all. As a shopper, you’ll get a payment card from Foodrunner and use it at the checkout register at every store you shop. Getting a payment card is simple. New shoppers usually receive their payment card in the mail 5 to 7 business days after completing the sign up process.

After the items in your order have been picked and packed, a personal shopper will start the delivery process. In some cases, the person who shops your order may not be the one who delivers it.
To make sure you get your delivery as scheduled, we recommend—
If the delivery driver can’t find your location, they’ll try to get in touch with you via text message or phone call before taking further action. Unless you specifically request for them to do so, drivers are unable to leave an order unattended. Orders containing alcohol can never be left unattended.
When a customer can’t be found or contacted for an extended period of time, the order may be cancelled.
In the case that you can’t be there to receive your delivery in person, we recommend first reaching out to a friend or neighbor to get it for you. Just let the driver know of the change by adding a note in the delivery instructions or sending them a message through the Foodrunner app or our website.
Alternatively, you can ask the driver to leave the order unattended in a designated spot.
Please note: orders containing alcohol require the I.D. and signature of someone 21 or older and cannot be left unattended
