Instawork’s payment cycles are on a weekly basis, Monday through Sunday. Generally, you'll be paid weekly, directly to your bank account. Your earnings from the week prior will be issued to the bank account on your profile every Tuesday. The funds will be deposited into your account no later than Friday. For more information on how to set up your bank account, click here.

Please note: If you work a 1099 gig booked via the Instawork app, you're working as an independent contractor and must file a 1099 tax form to report your earnings and pay the related taxes.

What you should know:

  • If you complete your W-2 paperwork and work gigs via the Instawork app, your taxes will be deducted before your payment is deposited. Your earnings are processed on Wednesdays for gigs completed the previous Monday through Sunday. The funds will be deposited into your account no later than Friday. For more information on W-2 gigs, click here.
  • Instapay is a feature that provides payment for a completed gig within hours. For more information on Instapay, click here.
