Tracking your delivery in progress

When it’s time for delivery, you’ll see a message in the Instacart app’s order screen. (If you have notifications turned on, you’ll get an alert as well.)

The delivery screen includes an estimated time of arrival and a map you can tap to follow the driver’s progress.
