After introducing , Instacart will now enable you to order large items from retailers. The companys new service, aptly named Big & Bulky, promises same-day and scheduled delivery of products like outdoor furniture, office supplies and home electronics. Currently, a small number of retailers, including Mastermind Toys, Office Depot and Staples, are taking part in this program nationally.
In the event that you already use Instacart to get groceries, it is possible to order large items simultaneously as buying food for the week. The business suggests some admittedly bizarre use cases where you might make use of the service. For instance, say you dont have a TV prior to the football game you need to watch. Instacart says you may use its app to obtain a 55-inch set in a hour. How often youll end up such situations is hard to state, but the very good news is that the service opens up yet another method for the companys contract shoppers to make money. Instacart told it could pay workers who accept Big & Bulky orders in line with the number and weight of the things within an order and provide much pay incentive where applicable.
