    I’ve already placed my order. Can I move the charges to a different payment method?
    You can only change a payment method on an order once it's been delivered.

    First, make sure the card you’d like the charges moved to is already on your account. Follow the steps above to add or update payment methods in your account.

    Next, contact Instacart Community Support and let us know the last four digits of the card you’d like the charges moved to.

    Please be aware that once we issue a change on the original charge, expect to wait about 3-5 business days for the refund to appear on the old payment method, and the new charge to appear on the new payment method. If you do not see the refund within that window of time, you’ll want to contact your bank directly.

  • Promo codes and credits

    A promo code is a promotional offer extended to customers, such as a free delivery or a discount on your next order. If you receive a promo code, and would like to apply it to your next order,  you’ll need to add it to your account first.

    Credits may be issued by Community Support when resolving order and delivery issues. If you were issued a credit by someone in Community Support, the credit will be automatically applied to your account.

    Add a promo code to your account

    1. Once you’re logged in, click Account
    2. From the menu, click Add promo code
    3. Enter the code and click Redeem

    Once the promo code has been added your account, it will be automatically applied to your next order.  

     

    View all active promos or credit in your account

    3. Click Promo Codes on the left
    4. You’ll see any coupons you have listed under AVAILABLE CREDIT/DISCOUNT

    Credits showing on your account will be automatically applied to your next order.  

    Please note: We reserve the right to discontinue a promo at any time and some promos have expiration dates. Please see terms for details.

  • Receipt and Charges Overview

    Access your receipt

    Once your delivery is complete, you can quickly access your receipt in your email inbox or in your Instacart account.  For a step by step guide to viewing your receipts, click here

    Estimated order total vs Final order total

    When you place an order, we show you the anticipated charge for your items, including estimated taxes and fees. Any approved changes to your order during shopping can update the final total in your order receipt.

    Items subtotal - adjustment charges

    An “Adjustment Charge” on your delivery receipt means the final item charge, after any order changes, was higher than the original authorization hold. This will appear as an additional charge line item on your card statement.

    For more information about order changes, click here.

    For more about the temporary authorization hold, click here.

    Delivery fee

    For information about the Delivery fee, click here.

    Service fee

    For information about the service fee, click here.

    Taxes and Fees

    All applied Taxes and Fees will be visible on your receipt. For information about taxes and fees, click here.

    Tip

    Tips added after delivery will appear as a separate charge on your card statement. Tip adjustments will also create a separate charge or credit item on your statement.

    For more information on tipping, click here

    Alcohol items charge

    If alcohol is available for purchase, depending on your delivery address, you may see items containing alcohol charged separately from non-alcohol items. This can result in multiple charges for one order in your card statement.

    Refunds

    Any refunds applied to your order after delivery will show up in your order receipt.

  • Why is my order total different after delivery?

    When you place an order, we show you the anticipated charge for your items, including estimated taxes and fees. Any approved changes to your order during shopping can update the final total in your order receipt.

    These changes can include:

    Added items: After you place an order, you can add items to it! You will not see a charge for any items added to your order until after the order is complete.

    Replacement items: You can choose to have items replaced or not if something is out of stock. If an item is replaced, we’ll update your receipt to reflect the replacement item price. If the replacement is more expensive than the item you ordered, you will be charged more. If the replacement is less expensive, you will be charged less.

    Out of stock/refunded items: If an item is out of stock, your shopper will mark the item as out of stock, and we’ll remove it  from your item total. This will reduce the final amount of your order.

    Weight adjustments: Our shoppers will try to get the exact weight of the items you requested, but it is likely the weight could be more or less than what you requested.  At the store, your shopper will input the correct items weights before checking out, and we’ll update your item total. For example, if you ordered 2 lbs of bananas, but we sent you 1.9 lbs, you will be charged for 1.9 lbs.

    Some item weights, like produce, are measured by shoppers using in-aisle scales. The weight of items from the deli, meat and seafood counters are determined by the label applied in-store to those items.

    Special requests: A Special request is a way to add an item you don’t see listed on the Instacart catalog. If you have any special requests in your order, you'll be charged for them after the order is complete, since we don't know the cost of special request items until your shopper finds the item in the store. For a list of prohibited Special Request items, please view this article.
