Harry here. It’s been a while since I signed up for Postmates and in that time, a lot has changed. Today, RSG contributor Dash Bridges switches allegiances and shares his experience about Postmates’ new sign-up and on-boarding (or lack thereof) process.
I’m going to be honest with you. After writing four articles about my DoorDash experience, I found it difficult to come up with a new angle to write from. Nearly on cue, Harry emailed me and said I should consider signing up for Postmates. In summer 2015, he tried Postmates and shared his experience, but a lot has changed since then so I wanted to sign up with Postmates myself and see what it was like.
Entering this experiment, my knowledge of Postmates was that it’s a service similar to DoorDash, delivering restaurant meals as well as non-food deliveries. You get paid on a per delivery basis, plus tips, PLUS additional money based on mileage. In talking to other drivers I’ve met on the road, most of them said you don’t make as much with Postmates as you do with DD. But just assuming that conventional wisdom doesn’t make for a good blog post. So, with no further knowledge, I began the signup process.
