Change payment for an order

Everyone makes mistakes. When you realize too late that you’ve picked the wrong form of payment, you can move the charges on orders you’ve already placed to a different payment method. Here’s how—

  1. First, you must wait until after the order is delivered.
  2. Make sure the card you’d like to use is already added to your account.
  3. Contact Instacart Support to give us the last 4 digits of the card you’d like to move the charges to.

Please note—we’ll need to issue a refund for the original form of payment before the new charges apply to the updated form of payment. This could take 3-5 business days to process.
