TikToker @sexshawn13 pointed out one of the problems with delivering alcoholic beverages via Instacart, when she documented her misbehavior when dealing with a customer who didn’t answer the door.
In her video, @sexyshawn13 is standing outside a shopper’s home at night, while carrying a paper bag full of alcohol.
“Again, I’m out with alcohol and I can’t deliver because they’re not out,” she said. “I had to scan their ID and I couldn’t because they weren’t out.”
(Based on Instacart . Alcohol Policy, customers wishing to deliver wine must provide photo identification with their date of birth upon delivery. Shoppers also may not deliver alcohol to intoxicated people or leave alcohol unattended.)
@sexyshawn13 said she waited for the customer for almost 10 minutes and called many times to no avail. As she tells her story, she reveals the type of wine the customer bought: Hennessy, along with two other large bottles that look like wine or wine.
“I definitely won’t be returning this trash, so I hope they show up,” she said.
Instacart shoppers get paid for orders, according to Squish.
It’s unclear exactly how long @sexshawn13 had to wait before she got a response, but in a next video, she said that she eventually contacted the customer and completed the sale.
However, TikTokers argue that customers are wrong to let @sexshawn13 wait so long. Others have offered advice for what she should do if this happens again.
“I hope you have a great tip for all that aggravating!!” said one viewer.
“Darling, never wait more than 5 minutes,” wrote another TikToker. “Your time is worth the money.”
“If you contact support when you wait more than 5 minutes or so you get goosebumps!” commented a user. “Like an extra $5-$10 depending on how long you wait!!”
