Postmates is a delivery service for food, much like UberEATS, Deliveroo or DoorDash. They cover cities in most of the US and offer both regular takeout for lunch or dinner, and grocery deliveries. Depending on the location, they even offer alcohol deliveries.
Postmates also offers pickup services from restaurants, along with other local establishments. Currently active in cities like LA, San Francisco, New York, San Diego, Chicago, Orlando, Houston or Pittsburgh and hundreds more, they cover large parts of the country.
Their alcohol delivery services are limited to a smaller area and cover fewer cities than their food and grocery services.
How does it work?
Like on similar services, users sign up for a free account, then order for delivery on the Postmates website by picking from the restaurant’s online menu and adding items to their basket, then checking out, selecting a delivery address and payment method. The order is sent to the restaurant or shop, prepared and then delivered.
Restaurants have delivery radiuses, and only ones that actually deliver to a user’s address will display in the list for them to choose from.
