What is InstaDash?
InstaDash is an on-demand concierge shopping service delivering groceries, essential items and thousands of everyday lifestyle products, with delivery starting from within an hour or scheduled when it suits the consumer.
So, InstaDash 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.
How do I sign up to become a shopper?
Start by downloading the InstaDash app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, and then create an account by registering in the InstaDash app as a shopper to complete the sign-up process and get your background check started. 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 do I get paid?
Shoppers get paid per batch that they complete. InstaDash 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 also earn a customer-sponsored tip anytime your customer rates you as a 5-star shopper. Based on the shoppers’ contract with us, our shoppers are not allowed to solicit or receive tips (whether cash or transfers or other in-kind benefits) from our customers.
As independent contractors, shoppers have the flexibility to work as little or as often as they want. This means that total earnings potential depends on the individual.
What documents do I need to sign up?
The first thing you’ll need to have on-hand is your contact information (the details on your national ID Card and BVN should cover this step). You’ll need your banking information, vehicle or bike ownership information, vehicle comprehensive insurance policy document and results of the food handling test from preferred medical facilities.
How long is my background check going to take?
Background checks normally process within 15 business days, but sometimes it can process much faster. Due to high volumes and other logistical issues, delays are possible.
Do I pay for groceries myself?
Not at all. As a shopper, you’ll get a payment card from InstaDash 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 within 3 business days after completing the sign up process.
What are the requirements to become an InstaDash shopper?
In order to become a shopper, you must be at least 18 years of age, have legal authorization to work in Nigeria, be able to lift up to 20kg items comfortably, have regular access to a reliable car or bike (allowed by relevant government authorities as delivery vehicles on the relevant routes), and have regular access to a smartphone capable of running the InstaDash app. You must also pass a background check and the required food handling test from pre-approved medical facilities.
In order to remain as a shopper, you must have a cumulative average rating of 4.5 stars from your recent 100 batches.
