With Postmates, you can order food from almost any restaurant or store and have it delivered within minutes. It's kind of like Uber, but for food. Once you place your order, a driver is dispatched to pick it up for you.
The Postmates delivery fee is a fixed cost of $2.99 or $3.99, depending on the distance between the pickup and drop-off locations. Additionally, a 9.99% service fee is applied to the purchase price of your items. But it's all pretty comparable to other food delivery apps.
