Postmates Delivery as a Service (DaaS) allows you to offer on-demand delivery as a fulfillment option to your customers. It’s perfect for anyone who sells retail products, home goods, groceries, catering, food, alcohol, and more.
Today, large sellers such as Apple, Walmart, and 7-11 are offering delivery experiences to their customers by integrating the API directly into their products.
We believe that local sellers should have these same tools, but know how uncommon it is to have the capital to invest in new technologies—much less growing a fleet. When you do, it comes at the unreasonable cost of your time. Time better spent serving your customers, selling your products, and growing your business.
This is why we’ve built a simple web app powered by the delivery API. It’s currently available to the wide variety of local businesses who sell on the Postmates app and requires no time to integrate. With a click of a button, your business can have a Postmate deliver orders to any local customer—regardless if the order was placed in the store, over the phone, or from a website.
