Today, we’ll show you how WP Tasty can help you take advantage of the Instacart Affiliate Program, known as Instacart Tastemakers.
With Instacart, you can have shoppable recipes on your site and earn commissions at the same time!
Pretty nifty, huh?
Let’s get into how you can give your readers more convenience and make money through the Instacart affiliate program.
How can I make money with Instacart’s affiliate program?
You've heard of the Instacart grocery delivery service that rose to prominence during the pandemic.
Well, now they've created an affiliate program and released an API to help people code it into their websites. There's just one problem… you're much better at cooking than you are at coding!
Not to worry, we've got a few tricks & tools that'll have you making money with Instacart in no time – all without any coding required. Let’s get into it:
1. Sign up for the affiliate program
Instacart’s Tastemakers is an affiliate marketing program that allows individuals or businesses to earn a commission by promoting Instacart services to their audience or customers. As an affiliate, you get a unique referral link or app referral code that you can share with your audience.
To sign up for Instacart Tastemakers and start earning, go to instacart.com/tastemakers. To participate you must be at least eighteen years old and a legal resident of the U.S.
After you sign up, you'll have access to your ID number, plus easy-link building tools that make your recipes, lists, or recipe website shoppable through Instacart. The Instacart Tastemakers program is currently only available in the United States.
2. Sell entire recipes on your site
When you use the Tasty Recipes WordPress recipe plugin, all your recipe cards will have a button that lets users easily add all the items in your recipe to their Instacart.
An Instacart personal shopper will then deliver their groceries. That means they skip the grocery store, and you make money. It's a win-win.
Using the Instacart feature means your recipes are now shoppable.
Here’s what it looks like on a recipe card.
One small button can do a lot for your website and your revenue.
So, you share your Instacart link, and someone buys, you will earn a commission for every order they place.
We’d say that’s a pretty good way to boost revenue.
Instacart offers members of its affiliate program a 5% commission rate. See details below.
Instacart offers more ways to earn referral cash, too, with their Instacart shopper referral bonus as well as an Instacart driver referral. You can even share Instacart promo codes to help get your readers started – but make sure they use your referral link to sign up!
3. Sell individual ingredients & items using affiliate links
