What is Postmates Priority?

Postmates Priority allows expedited delivery for a minimal surcharge. With Postmates Priority, you’ll be able to skip the virtual line and get your orders delivered by a guaranteed time. This feature is available in-app only and for select merchants. 


For qualifying orders, you’ll be able to select between:

  • Standard (normal delivery fee)
  • Priority (slightly higher delivery fee)
  • Party delivery (free delivery where applicable)


What if I don’t see a Priority option at checkout?

We don’t provide Priority delivery for that merchant. 

Can I use a delivery fee promotion and select Priority delivery?

Delivery fee promotions cannot be used when Priority delivery is selected. 

What if my order had Priority delivery but arrived late?

If your Priority delivery arrives late, you’ll only pay the standard delivery fee. If you’re a member of Postmates Unlimited, you won’t pay a delivery fee at all if your order size is above the cart minimum (varies by location). 


If you have yet to try Postmates Unlimited, read our article on how to get a free trial.
