Instacart Business helps you get the supplies and groceries from your favorite retailers on the platform that you need to run your day-to-day. 

By creating a free, separate Business account, any customer in Canada or the U.S. can keep track of business purchases separate from any personal purchases made through Instacart.

Sign up for an Instacart Business account

To sign up for an Instacart Business account—

  1. Go to https://www.instacart.com/business.
  2. Select Get started.

After signing up, you gain access to a profile tailored to businesses. 

You can either import information from your existing personal profile to your new Business account or use a business email address that isn’t attached to an existing Instacart profile to create a separate Business account. Explore either option by following the Add Business Profile prompt.

If you change your mind and don’t want to sign your business up, exit the sign-up process to go back to the standard Instacart experience.

Instacart Business and Instacart+ benefits

With an Instacart+ membership, you can enjoy $0 delivery fees on eligible orders of $35 or more and reduced service fees on eligible orders.

If you have an Instacart+ membership, you can use your benefits on both your personal and Business accounts. If you don’t have Instacart+, you can sign up through your Business or personal account.

With an active Instacart+ membership, you get 2% credit back on Business orders of $250 or more. Note, you must be logged into your Business account to receive this benefit. 

We’re planning to roll out the ability to add 4 more members to your business account and share your Instacart+ benefits soon. When it's available, you can see this feature in your team member dashboard. Email business@instacart.com for more information.
