Postmates Statistics user count and Facts 2023

Postmates is an on-demand delivery service that allows customers to order and receive a wide variety of goods, including food, groceries, and other items, from local merchants in their area. The company was founded in 2011 and is headquartered in San Francisco, California.

Customers can use the Postmates mobile app or website to place an order, which is then picked up and delivered by a courier. Postmates uses a network of independent contractors, called Postmates couriers, who use their own vehicles to make deliveries.

Postmates operates in hundreds of cities across the United States and has partnerships with thousands of local merchants, including restaurants, grocery stores, and retailers. The company also offers a subscription service called Postmates Unlimited, which provides free delivery and other benefits for a monthly fee.

Postmates has been particularly popular among younger consumers and urban dwellers who value convenience and speed. The company has faced competition from other delivery services such as Uber Eats and DoorDash, and was acquired by Uber in late 2020.

Overall, Postmates has played an important role in the growing trend of on-demand delivery services, and has helped to change the way that people order and receive goods from local merchants.

No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
