How do you determine the delivery fee?

The Postmates delivery fee is $3.99 for Partner Merchants (look for the green check mark next to their name) and $5.99–$9.99 for all other merchants. Additionally, a variable percentage-based service fee is applied to the purchase price of your items. Both fees will always be shown for your review at checkout.

During peak order times, delivery prices may surge (or blitz). Blitz pricing creates a strong financial incentive for Postmates to make themselves available when you need them most. Delivery fees influenced by blitz will be called out on the checkout screen.

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. Postmates Unlimited subscribers will never pay blitz pricing or delivery fees on orders over $20 ($15 in LA).
