There are two aspects of this awesome service. One is delivery and the other is delivering. I have done both and the experience is pretty good. I’ve only ordered a few times but it is nice to be able to get food from pretty much anywhere.
I have been delivering food for Postmates for about a month now and I have made a nice chunk of side change. I finally started doing it after being signed up for like a year because I have to pick my daughter up from work in the evenings. She happens to work in the hotspot area, so it is mad convenient to go make a few bucks after I get off work. And honestly, it’s kind of fun.
How it works:
You go online; making yourself available. You get a delivery once you hit the hotspot area which for Columbus it is in the campus/short north area. You can accept deliveries at your leisure. I don’t except anything fast food or coffee runs. It’s messy and you likely will not get a decent tip. Base pay is about $4 per delivery. You make more based on tips and location of delivery. So for example, if I have to pick up food near the Ohio State campus, but I drop it off somewhere in Upper Arlington or Bexley, I will be making $.85 per mil that I drive to deliver the goods. And most of the time the tips are good when you deliver to those areas. Sometimes you’ll get like $10-15 for one delivery. And that is on top of the base amount.
I will go into more details on another post. I just decided to share this with you all just because. You can find lots of info about Postmates and other delivery services on YouTube and of course google.
