Postmates is a food delivery service that employs numerous freelance drivers, often called Postmates couriers, to deliver goods to people’s homes or places of work. Orders can be placed by users on Postmates’ official website or through Postmates’ iOS and Android apps. A separate app, Postmates Fleet, is used by couriers to pick up and deliver orders.

Postmates can be used to deliver groceries and convenience items in some neighborhoods, but the service is mostly used to order food from restaurants and cafés. The service is generally very similar to Uber Eats and works exactly the same way.
Many of the restaurants and cafés that are listed in the Postmates apps and on the Postmates website are also often available through other food delivery services, such as Uber Eats, Grubhub, and DoorDash. If you use other services, it may be worthwhile to compare prices before ordering, as delivery charges can vary depending on the activity of each service at any given time.
