How do shopper referrals work?

In order to qualify for a referral bonus, you must have completed 5 or more shops, and the shopper that you’re referring must list your shopper ID in the corresponding field on their application.
*Note: If referrals are not being accepted in the area where a shopper is applying in, there will not be a field to submit a shopper ID.

Once an application has been submitted, no edits can be made. If your shopper ID is not present on an application at the time of submission, you will not be eligible for a referral bonus for that applicant.

After the referred shopper has been accepted, they will need to complete 5 shops within 2 weeks of being approved. Those 5 orders must all be completed on time with no promo pay.
*Note: Promo orders and orders completed outside of the metros listed above will not count towards the bonus.

Once the above criteria are met, you and the shopper you referred will receive a $50 bonus in your weekly direct deposit on the first Friday of the month after qualifying.
*Note: Any referrals that were made before 3/8/2021 will be paid out according to the parameters set at the time.

There is no limit to how many new shoppers someone can refer to Shipt! Simply have them apply online and follow the instructions above.
