Unless you are debt free and financially independent, finding ways to make money while on the road is a priority. Many people pursue online work like blogging, e-commerce, or work from home positions which are great, but today I would like to inform you as to how Shipt shopping can help to support your RV dream.
What is Shipt?
Shipt got started in 2014 and is going strong in 43 states across the US.
It is a delivery service that partners with grocery and big name department stores like Publix, Winn Dixie, Harris Teeter, Costco, Target and are constantly expanding.
Much like Uber Eats, it is an independent contractor job and requires you to use your own vehicle.
Everything is handled through the app even the initial interview. You answer a few questions on a video clip and send it in. If they hire you they will send you a debit card to get started and the fun begins.
Nothing is required for you to work for them besides valid a driver’s license, registration/insurance, a good cell plan and your own car.
The company will give you the first Shipt shirts free. You can also purchase all types of accessories from them like cooler bags, hoodies, and car signs. However you are not required to wear their logo, you can dress as you please.
Useful items I have found are a foldable, portable cart and a cell phone holder that attaches to my cart. The cart is very handy for when you deliver to high rises and have heavier or multiple items and the cell holder allows me to work hands free. These are the ones I use.
How it works
Shipt is extremely easy to work and to use. Customers make orders which come straight to your phone. Shopping the orders are a breeze with a very friendly app interface and scanner that won’t let you make mistakes.
Deliver groceries or other items to busy moms, single dads, elderly parents, busy working singles, folks home sick from work, or people who just hate shopping!
Shipt pays weekly which is very convenient and there are multiple ways to make money… from the order itself, to promotional pay to the tips.
Of course how much you make depends on many factors such as how many orders you do a week, your shopper rating, and if you are full or part-time. Average pay is around $500 if you take 25-30 orders a week.
Tips to make more money with Shipt
Ways to make max money with Shipt include the following:
- Have a high shopper rating. This means you deliver ON TIME and your order is highly accurate. You will get higher tips and be sent more work based on your rating.
- Look for those promotional orders. There are times when Shipt gets so swamped with orders and don’t have enough people working to cover them so they start doling out anywhere from $2-$25 on top of your order and tip pay. Some folks only take the promo jobs to make max money per order.
- Set yourself up on your own schedule and TAKE THE ORDERS WHEN THEY COME! This way you will be sent orders first because your acceptance rate which affects your overall rating will be high.
- You can also make money by referring other people to Shipt.
The Perks of Shipt
It lends itself well to RV life as it is just 8 states shy of being nationwide so you can work it almost anywhere you travel and SET YOUR OWN SCHEDULE.
Working Shipt will allow you to get to know the areas in which you currently reside better and give you a real sense of the town and people. You will also know all the sales specials when you do your own shopping:-).
Shipt provides a stellar service that provides real value to the people who work it and use it. It is a company with a corporate culture that has a heart, which is always a plus in my book.
Working Shipt in conjunction with UberEats is a great combo to maximize earning potential during the hours you want to work.
You also get the service for free as a member if you want to use it yourself.

Depending on your situation it can definitely have a place in helping to support your RV life.
