I do love instacart most of the time. However I've noticed lately instacart has been scamming me. I'll click and order that says 5 miles away. I finish shopping and hit gps to fekiver and it'll jump to 10-15 miles away. And it makes me mad. Because then I have to get back to stores once I'm done causing a 20-30 mile trip for like $15 or less. I just got tricked to doing 30 miles for $14 $10 insta cart and $4 customer. Only to have customer take away tip once delivered.

I called to complain and even tried to file a disputed for money and they refused. Instacart said I was paid correctly for the trip.

Lately I've come to realize I'm only taking ones from now on with bigger batch money than tip. Because people keep taking away tips because items are out of stock. I work so hard on these I go above and beyond I keep contact with all customers.

And to answer soem questions from this thread. For those saying nobody took your order and you've waited hours and then canceled. If the batch pay isn't good and the tip isn't good and you have 30+ items and a long dive from store to your house, news flash nobody wants to take it. Is shoppers don't have to take your order it'll just sit in the app. If you only tip $3 for 50 items and live 4+ miles or more away nobody's going to take it. That's maybe an hour to shop nobody wants to make $13 an hour lmao would you? No. We could be completing shorter batches and making more by the hour.

Tip for consumers:
If you’re giving someone an order that will take an hour make the tip worth it otherwise nobody wants it. If you’re going to order over 38 items at leasssst tip $5. And stop taking the tip away if we have communicated and brought your groceries there. We work hard. Stop duping us or less people will want to shop for you.
