Instacart Pay Stub (how To Get One + Other Common Faqs)

Shopping for Instacart is a positive experience because when you schedule your delivery, the delivery times and routes are flexible. You can also choose to pay for your delivery through the app, which is an inexpensive initial start-up cost.

You can still shop for groceries without an issue, but it can be harder if you want to go to Costco or buy a lot of a certain thing.

You have a paystub from Instacart and want to give it to a potential employer to verify that you were actually employed.

Can You Get an Instacart Paystub In 2022?

You can see your Instacart earnings for the week and your pay for the week in the earnings summary in the app. Your pay information is based on earnings and tips you earned.

How Do You Get an Instacart Paystub?

Instacart does not remit paystubs to its shoppers, meaning shoppers are not guaranteed a certain salary.

This is because independent contractors are really independent… they get to do as they please, they don’t report to anyone else and they don’t use any of the employer’s resources.

However, people usually don’t use tax forms to file for low-income benefits, update student loan payment information, or apply for a mortgage.

There’s now the benefit of having all the information on the same platform, and it has to be a robust platform that is easy for businesses and individuals to use.

To combat this, Instacart will soon be introducing a new “Earnings” tab to ensure customers are satisfied after every order.

The shopper app lets users enter promotions, such as earning points for making a purchase, that are shared with friends and family.

You can also create a deposit slip right there, without having to transfer money from your checking or savings to your checking account.

To those institutions that require proof of income, you must indicate that you are employed by Instacart.

But… you’re going to get a pay stub from my boss… if I have a

The new form does not have any actual information in the lines you have to sign, just the date. You have to pay your income tax, but unless you are going to be audited, there is no information that is going to catch you in an audit. So, you have to provide the document showing your income, but you don’t have to sign it.

The institution, which might require income documentation, is recommended for people who want to apply for the loan.

To be able to use the Earnings feature on the Shoppers app, users will have to pay a monthly fee.

How Do You Check Your Earnings on Instacart?

You can find a record of what you earned on Instacart in the Earnings section of your app.

It’s the first time the customer selects your price. Once you confirm your price, this screen will disappear, and you will no longer have it appear on the customer’s browser. It will be added to your invoice and show in your dashboard.

A cool feature of this dashboard is how much time you were active each day, how many batches you completed, and how much you made overall.

If you look at the top of the Instacart page, it says you can see your earnings for the “past 30 days.”
For the most part, you get your money on your earnings report.
You can still use your “earnings balance” if you’re having trouble making ends meet, but, again, that’s the most important thing.

Can Instacart Be Used as Income?

The first $600 is for your company.
The next $600 is for the employee.
So the company gets to keep $600.
The rest is for the employee (which is their gross income).

Firstly, if you’re trying to prove income through a mortgage application, the bank won’t recognise it.

So, if you apply for a mortgage, your income will not include your freelance earnings if you were an Instacart gig worker for less than three years.

As you can see from the screenshot above, here you can also see an Amazon Prime membership. This is a service that allows you to order any product from Amazon, which can then be shipped to you, at a discounted price.

However you will need to show your job search, even if it’s a part time job. A bank might only want to see a single job, and even if you had several jobs while out of work, you’re not going to put it on your application.

You will have to show the proof to the authorities at the port of entry, and provide them proof of your earnings at the time of your entry into the United States.

How Does Instacart Send 1099 Forms?

This will be the first time that I have received a 1099-NEC form from Instacart.

For your tax filing, keep the receipts and any information you received from the company.

The paper form is useful if you want to keep the receipt. I would have missed this one since I am not a tax person but there are people that are.

You might not receive one and if you do go back and add up your earnings.

If you didn’t make $600 during the week, then you are not entitled to any money or a gift card. The cash you received is taxable income, and therefore Instacart is required to send you a form 1099-K. The tax form will have a line for ‘$600’ and ‘0’.

How Do Instacart Shoppers File Taxes?

If you work for Instacart (or one of its employees) and you have worked a minimum of 20 hours in a calendar year, you are a W-2 employee, so no need to use the 1099-NEC form.

If your project is delivered with multiple apps, you will be eligible to file one form 1099-MISC per project and one 1099-INT for each app delivered to the client.

Remember: the IRS gets an exact copy of your 1099, so it knows exactly how much income you should get away with pretending to have and it’ll make sure you get away with it.

Failure to report the full amount may result in significant fines and penalties.

To ensure that nobody else is working as hard as you, you can also read our posts on how can you delete a customer on Instacart, Instacart FAQ, and when should you report a customer on Instacart.


Instacart does not send a full-time job to its full-service shoppers, but they are required to keep track of earnings in the app.

At tax time, Instacart sends out 1099-NECs to all full-service shoppers who earn $600 or more. (Instacart will also send a separate 1099-MISC for shoppers who earn less).
