And companies such as Shipt are making this experience possible even when it comes to mundane items like groceries. Plus, a bonus that can come with Shipt is that it’s also a great way to earn some extra cash.

Shipt is now looking for anyone age 18 or older to become a professional shopper. This role transforms Shipt from a simple convenience into a side gig or full-blown job. The position can pay about $22 an hour, according to the company’s website.

If you’re looking to make a little extra cash, you might want to apply to be a shopper for Shipt. In this role, you’d essentially get paid to shop for others’ grocery items and help them easily get one major item off of their to-do list.


All you have to do to apply is head to the Shipt website and fill out the company’s online questionnaire. They prompt you with things such as “Start by telling us a little bit about yourself,” in a way that feels fun and conversational — so, it’s not exactly your typical, boring job application.

Some requirements for the job is that you’re at least 18 years old and that you have a reliable vehicle. You must also have at least one year of experience as a licensed driver.

If you meet those requirements, you’re on your way to becoming a Shipt shopper. Should there be openings in your area, someone from the Shipt team will get in touch for an interview.

Based on testimonials from Shipt employees, there are several aspects to love about the role of a Shipt shopper. Some highlight the flexible schedule, the chance to help others and the Shipt shopper community as highlights of working for this company.

Interested in becoming a shopper for a grocery delivery service? Shipt isn’t the only option out there for you. Instacart is another company that’s hiring full-service shoppers and in-store shoppers to help make sure people get the food they need.


Full-service shoppers set their own schedules and need access to a car, while in-store shoppers work part-time in a store location and do not need to use a car for the role. So, you can pick the position that works for you.

Start looking into these companies if you’re interested in earning money while shopping for groceries. Certainly doesn’t sound like a bad gig!
