Memphis Market is Slow
It seems like there just are no batches to go around because it’s so many people doing this now. You got like 500 people looking at on demand trying to snap up 2 batches so you will be sitting days and hours no batches. Memphis is just weird. People have dumped Instacart for Shipt so everybody slinging those other green packs getting paid because Instacart got too many workers and not enough members paying for the service so that’s why it’s no batches. You can look at the site at 7am nothing, 9am nothing, 12 noon nothing, 3pm nothing 5pm nothing 7pm nothing and that is so weird. You can’t depend on this for a side hustle because it’s mega slow here in this Memphis market and you may go a week no orders or longer because it’s drying up.
Pay is very low
Instacart was good when I first started over a year ago. Now good batches are far and few between. Many batches have no tip and Instacart pay can be as low as 7.00 for a full service order with over 20 items. So with driving distance and shopping time it pays well below minimum wage often. Not counting the use of my car.
So now I only take batches that will pay at least $20 and can be done in one hour. I may get one good batch between 7:30 and 9:30 am. Sometimes there are none at all. And I have to constantly watch my phone because the Austin market is oversaturated with shoppers and the good batches go really fast.
I have been dashing for Door Dash and can average 20 to 25 per hour and sometimes more. At times a shift is a bust but overall is far better than Instacart
