How does pricing work?

Instawork offers flexible, all-inclusive pricing to ensure you only pay for the hours you use. Pricing includes the Instawork Professional’s hourly rate, Occupational Accident Insurance, taxes, and a $10 per shift booking fee. Instawork handles all billing and worker payments.

Pricing is clearly stated before you submit your booking request on our platform.

How do you pre-screen workers?

People who sign up on Instawork have to create a detailed profile. We collect and verify over 30 skills data points, including work history, skill quizzes, professional references, and valid certifications.

We’re different from local temp agencies because these data points are available to you to review via their profile. Plus, once they start completing shifts through Instawork, we continue to assess their work performance with ratings, feedback, and on-time metrics.
