How to order on Postmates?
1. Open the app.
2. Choose your store of choice. I will choose American Apparel, for example.
The user interface is seamless and easy to use, kind of like a store app! For this example I chose "Men" so I could browse through the Men's hoodies.
Note that not all the hoodies are available for delivery. These are the styles that are currently available for delivery. Choose the one you'd like to order.
Next the screen will allow you to choose the color and size. When you're done choosing, you can click "Add to Cart" where you can also adjust the quantity.
Once you are ready to check out, it will display the subtotal, taxes and delivery fee. As you can see, I qualify for free delivery on this purchase and it will take approximately 30-45 minutes to receive! This is pretty useful if I want to snag some winter hoodies for my friends during Christmas but I don't want to spend the extra time Lyfting to American Apparel and buying the hoodies myself. With the discounted delivery, I am essentially paying the same price as I would have if I had bought them in person. Plus I don't have to worry about paying for shipping if alternatively I wanted to purchase them online. Take advantage of some of these same day delivery services this holiday season!
