How to Change Location Setting Displayed in Instacart App

The Instacart app allows users to order groceries and other items from local stores for delivery or pickup. The app uses your device’s location services to determine which stores are available in your area. If you want to change the location setting displayed in the Instacart app, such as if you are moving or traveling, there are a few easy ways to do so.

Why Change Location Setting

There are a few main reasons you may want to change the location setting in your Instacart app:

  • Moving to a new area: If you are moving, you’ll likely want to update the location so you can see stores and place orders in your new neighborhood.
  • Traveling: If you are traveling, changing the location can allow you to place orders for delivery at your temporary location.
  • Expanding options: Changing your location setting gives you access to different stores that may not be available in your current area.
  • Work as a shopper: Instacart shoppers need to set their location to the zone where they want to pick up orders.
