About

Postmates is a goods and food delivery service that allows customers to order almost anything, including personal items, groceries, and restaurant meals. The idea is that these things will be delivered to the client's door in less than an hour.

Requirements

You must be 18 years of age or older. You must have a valid driver's license and access to an insured vehicle, or access to a bicycle if you would prefer. You must be able to pass a background check performed by Postmates when you apply.

Tips

Communicate well with customers. Fast deliveries = happy customers. In order to maximize productivity, take advantage of stacking deliveries, completing more than one order at a time. Drive during peak hours. Take advantage of blitz pricing. Capitalize on bonuses and incentives. Enable auto accept. When you enable the auto accept feature, you don’t need to worry about looking at your phone and browsing for the next delivery. Keep good records! You are self-employed and will want to be prepared for tax season. Between rides, don’t drive aimlessly around. Instead, find a location that works well to park.
