Instacart encourages tipping as a way to show your shoppers appreciation and recognition for excellent service. 100% of your tip goes directly to the shopper delivering your order. 

The default tip is 5% or the percentage you chose for your most recent order, whichever is higher. There is a minimum suggested tip of $2 per individual warehouse delivery. Tips are optional and may be adjusted up to 24 hours after your delivery is complete.

You can modify the tip both while placing an order and after delivery is complete.
