What people are saying about Postmates:
"The hottest delivery startup out of San Francisco [Postmates] is growing like crazy" - Business Insider
"Think of Postmates as the Amazon Prime for the ‘now’ sort of delivery. Two days is just fine on books and socks, but less good when you need an iPhone 5 charger, three tacos, and ibuprofen delivered to your office in about an hour." - TechCrunch
“Postmates... stands out from just grocery deliveries or restaurant services by featuring a roster of places that don’t typically do takeout. Think Momofuku Milk Bar pastries, Niketown and Best Buy.” - NY Post
What's New in Version 2.5.5
• Lots of fixes for Apple Watch app
• Various other improvements
Portlanders, you could do better!
You can get delivery from places that don't offer delivery either themselves or through Delivered Dish.
Tracking is cool, like with Uber and Lyft, but most bike Postmates don't use it fully so little help then.
You get delivery from places that have no infrastructure for delivery. It can show: unable to process takeout orders via app/phone so you wait an extra 30m, flimsy to-go containers that won't survive bike deliveries or keep warm, app menus not up-to-date with availability.
You pay delivery by the mile, but most restaurants are downtown. Unless you're within the inner center, expect to pay $7-$10 PLUS a $4 service fee.
Currently, most Postmates in Portland are on bikes. I had a delivery with drinks that ended up spilling and ruining half the food, while the rest managed to split open or was cold upon arrival. You do NOT get an option to choose the type of vehicle. Most Postmates also don't have food warming containers either.
Use Twitter to report order issues. Email support is spotty and far, far less responsive.
For food delivery, Portland Postmates is not the best option if you want hot, intact, and timely food. Delivered Dish continues to be the only choice here. Sometimes there's a good reason a restaurant isn't doing delivery...
Watch your charges
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I wanted to love this app so bad. What a great concept. I was charged more than my agreed amount both times. A shocking $7-10 difference in the order leaves a bad taste in your mouth. They can't guarantee the price due to "restaurant price changes and taxes." I could choke down a dollar or two for price difference, but once we get over $5, I just don't understand how a business can run this way. They don't warn you about this in any way before hand. "We are working on it though." Just don't expect to be charges what you agree to pay on your "checkout." It'll be different when your postmate delivers your food. FYI, the postmates have been awesome, that doesn't make up for the utter lack of research, accuracy, or effort put into the way this business is run. I won't be using this app again.
Under an hour!!
Whenever I'm on a time crunch or really hungry, postmates is the way to go. Most of my orders came right around 30~40 minutes. A few took the full hour if I order during Weekend dinner time. If you're a well educated person, you can easily see the one star reviews are written by people who just like to complain. If it's too expensive, don't use it. You don't need to go on a rant about it. If your offended that this is for "lazy rich people", work harder and maybe you'll someday enjoy the fruits of this helpful app. Just because you live in NYC you're not entitled to couriers.
