We may require Shoppers using the Instacart platform to verify their identity through the use of a facial recognition technology system (the “System”). As described in this policy, the System requires you to take pictures of your face and submit them to Instacart for verification.
Bottom line is it's because Instacart is afraid of scaring off customers because they mandated their formerly optional service charge - (it was 10% but was optional, and unwary customers who paid it, were effectively donating to Instacart) but then IC decided April 2018, ok we'll lower the service charge to 5% but then
