Give Instacart Shoppers their tips back!

This petition made change with 139 supporters!

I am currently a Full-Service Shopper for the on-demand grocery service, Instacart. For the past year I have enjoyed a flexible schedule and an average compensation of about $25 an hour.  For me and many other Instacart full-service shoppers, this is how we support ourselves in this increasingly unstable economy.  Recently, Instacart annouced that they are doing away with the electronic tip option in the app. Tips now go straight to the shopper, but starting Oct 16, 2016 they are changing the "tip" to a "service fee."  INSTACART KEEPS THE ENTIRE SERVICE FEE.  The only way shoppers can receive tips is in cash. Instances of cash tips are rare and most people don't carry cash.  The worst part is that Instacart says they are making this change for the shoppers' benefit--that we requested this.  WE.  DID. NOT.  Although they are raising our per-item and delivery commision for orders, this change will result in 10-40% less pay for shoppers.  Please join me in letting Instacart know that cutting the pay of the very people that built their business is NOT OKAY.  Give Instacart shoppers their tips back!
