The Postmates app is a tool for the delivery company that allows customers to have home delivery of pretty much anything.
This versatility means that it is an attractive option for those looking to make money with a side hustle.
Being a Postmate courier means that you’re paid for the time you spend waiting to pick up an order, the miles you travel and how many orders you complete in an hour.
You can also receive tips from customers that boost your income further.
Postmates is available in all 50 states, and there are no vehicle requirements, so you can deliver by bike, car or even on foot.
You do need to be at least 18, download the Postmates Fleet app and complete a background check.
When you’re accepted, Postmates will send you everything you need, including a prepaid card and insulated delivery bag free of charge.
The app will alert you to new delivery requests and show a map highlighting the quickest route.
You will receive your pay each week via direct deposit with a minimum payout for each order.
