courier (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 12, 2014
Postmates is a platform for bike couriers to make extra money delivering various goods throughout a few select urban areas. Couriers make their own schedules, and choose which jobs they wish to take. A typical delivery pulls $6-$10 for the courier. It was enjoyable for me because I enjoy cycling. It doesn't always feel like work.
Th pay varies from job to job and taking into account the wear and tear on your vehicle. Some customers tip nicely while others will be hard to get a cent from. The issue is that small jobs typically have less pay but you cant see the job in the preview until you accept it.
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 20, 2017
I work for a lot of different delivery platforms and I actually prefer postmates a lot more. I would only work with them if they had instant pay like the rest of the platforms. For some reason I get more tips on their app then I do on the other apps and even the delivery fee seems to be higher.
