There’s an App for That…

There are times when Netflix is my best friend. Oversize t-shirts that double as pajamas and shorts that have elastic banding come a close second. There are days I take two hours to get out of bed, only forced to leave the warmth of my blanket to use the bathroom. Lazy summer afternoons spent indoors with the AC blasting and sleeping in with no obligations – that is what I call bliss.

The only thing that can make those days any better is great food. No more Chinese take-out please. Yes, they deliver, but how many times can one person possibly eat Chicken and Broccoli? If you agree with me, you’ll understand why Postmates is bliss in the form of a mobile application. The service it provides is pure genius, as much as it’s convenient, efficient, as much as it is reliable.

Postmates is a San Francisco-based mobile delivery service as well as your own personal courier service. Bastian Lehmann, the CEO of Postmates, along with the rest of the Postmates team, have transformed the way local goods more around a city by allowing people to get any product delivered right to your door. Keep in mind, when I say any product I mean any product, even those from places that don’t offer delivery. Do you need your dry cleaning picked up? No worries. Or maybe you desperately need to purchase a shirt from H&M before the winter sale ends? Postmates has got you covered.

How does it work exactly?

Postmates connect customers with local couriers, who actually purchase and deliver the goods from any restaurant or store in a city. All you need is a smart phone to download the mobile application and soon you will be ordering all kinds of products with a touch of a button. Once your order is placed, a rated and trusted Postmate will then do the shopping for you and deliver the product to your house, all in less than one hour. Payment is also cashless and therefore, hassle-free.

These are just some of the reasons why Postmates has become a quickly growing trend. Currently, the community of dedicated drivers and riders deliver in major cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., Seattle and Austin. The service is also available 24/7, so when you’re craving an order of fried chicken at 2am during your next Netflix marathon, Postmates might just be your lifesaver.
