Things to consider when using Instacart

  • If you have “No Match Found” items, you may need to purchase those at a different store in a separate order, or you can search for a suitable substitution.
  • To update your Shopping List in Real Plans, check off the ingredients in your Real Plans Shopping List once they have been purchased.
  • Since Instacart limits the number of items that can be sent to the shopping cart, it may be helpful to create a custom date range in your Shopping List to shop for fewer days at a time, or you can break your list up into two orders, if preferred.
  • You can also find answers to many questions and learn more about how Instacart works at the Instacart Help Center.
