To see what an event or shift would cost you, complete the booking form. We’ll provide you with a quote upfront. You can cancel without any penalties 24 hours or more before the shift start time.
What determines the hourly rate?
To provide you with quality Instawork Professionals (Pros), the hourly rate flexes (increases) to stay competitive in your local market. When you complete a booking, you agree you’re willing to pay this flexible hourly rate.
When hourly rates may flex:
Type of position requested
Location of the shift
Last-minute requests (less than 24-hour advance notice)
Requests during peak days and times (e.g. holidays)
Flexible pricing enables you to rest assured that you’ll get the help you need, even when demand for Pros is high.
Other ways to adjust Pro pay
If you want extra assurance that your shift will attract great Pros, you can select the following in the booking form:
Top Pro booster: set a bonus that’s only offered to our Top Pros (see qualifications)
Tips: you can let Pros know they will earn tips after the shift (see details on paying tips to Pros)
What happened to the $10 or $20 booking fee?
As of January 3, 2022, we’ve removed the separate booking fee from our flexible pricing so we can simplify our pricing model. We've adjusted hourly rates in light of the separate booking fee removal. You'll only have to pay a single rate from now on. This applies to any shift booked on January 3, 2022 or later.
What if I don’t want to pay the stated hourly rate?
We understand that everyone has a different budget. Based on our research, we believe that these rates reasonably attract the high-quality Instawork Professionals you expect and deserve.
