Frequently asked questions

Are there any upfront fees or costs?

There are no costs to get started.

How does pricing work?

Instawork offers flexible, all-inclusive pricing to ensure you only pay for the hours you use. Hourly business rates include the Instawork Professional’s hourly rate, Occupational Accident Insurance coverage, and applicable taxes and fees. Instawork handles all billing and worker payments.

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

For those with recurring or large volume needs, we also have custom pricing. Please speak with a Partnerships Manager by requesting a demo.

How do you pre-screen workers?

Workers 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.

What cities does Instawork operate in?
