How do you determine the Delivery Fee?

Fees help pay for your Postmate’s time and keep our whole operation running smoothly, so you can get whatever you need quickly and conveniently.

In general, the Postmates Delivery Fee is a flat rate of $5.99, however we can currently bring you orders from our Partners at an even lower rate: $3.99! Additionally, a variable percentage based service fee is applied to the purchase price of your items.

During peak times, delivery prices may surge* (or Blitz). Surge pricing creates a strong financial incentive for Postmates to make themselves available when you need them most. You will always be notified of your Delivery Fee on the checkout screen before requesting a Postmate.

*Unlimited subscribers will never pay surge pricing on any order. To learn more about the service, visit postmates.com/unlimited
