Postmates – Delivering On Your Own Time

Much like competitors Instacart and Shipt, Postmates boasts being the “largest, most reliable on-demand delivery and pickup platform” with over 25,000 merchant partners in their network… and counting.

They also claim members can use the Postmates app to have delivered anything from anywhere. LOL, seriously! Postmates is the food delivery, grocery delivery, alcohol delivery (yes, even booze), whatever-you-can-think-of delivery service that brings their members whatever they crave right to their door.

While that certainly is a bold statement, I am pretty certain it does not include any illegal products or services.

Joining the Postmates Fleet

Signing up is quick and easy. Once approved, you will receive a free delivery bag and a prepaid card.

Make your own schedule and work as much or as little as you want. With their app, you will see how much you earned after each delivery and exactly how your earnings were calculated. Even better, your money is deposited in 4–5 business days.

Earnings include:

  • An amount for each completed pick up
  • An amount for each completed drop off
  • A per minute waited rate for time you spend at the pickup location
  • A per mile rate for the distance between the pickup & drop-off locations

You also keep 100% of your tips!
