Is there a rating system on Postmates?
Postmates does not use a star rating system. We believe that this helps you avoid being held responsible for circumstances outside of your control (for instance, if an item was prepared incorrectly). Instead, customers rate their delivery as a whole with a thumbs up or thumbs down.
Do Postmates review customers?
Postmates has a consumer rating of 1.13 stars from 739 reviews indicating that most customers are generally dissatisfied with their purchases.
Does Postmates have a tracker?
Tracking link: With every delivery created, Postmates provides an external, non-branded and easy to read tracking link. Passing this to your customer allows them to follow their delivery from start to finish including real-time dropoff ETAs.
Can you see who tipped you on Postmates?
Will my delivery driver know the tip amount that I leave? Unless you’re tipping in cash, your driver won’t know exactly how much you tipped them. The Postmates Fleet app won’t display tips until at least 24 hours after your order has occurred, and your name won’t be attached to the tip.
Does Postmates care about acceptance rate?
There’s no minimum acceptance rate to stay on the platform. On-time/Early rate: This is how many orders have been delivered on-time or early out of your 100 most recent deliveries.
Does Postmates pay for gas?
No, Postmates does not pay for your gas. When working as a Postmate, you are considered an independent contractor, meaning you will be responsible for any of your own expenses incurred. However, part of the Postmates payment formula does factor in the number of miles you have traveled for your deliveries.
Why did Postmates charge me $50?
Here’s how it works: To guarantee payment for your order, we authorize your card to ensure it’s valid and there are sufficient funds available to place your order. This is a common practice used as an extra layer of security for all parties. You’ll see a temporary authorization on all Postmates orders.

You can avoid this by writing in your Postmates account that a courier should not take other orders before delivering yours.

Postmates’ price hike was due to the passage of Prop 22 — the very same measure that was supposed to keep costs down. Postmates explains on its website that the increases are needed to pay for the benefits independent drivers are getting from Prop 22.
