  • Postmates is unreliable


    By afs0202
    This is a review of Postmates itself, not the app. I ordered from a local Italian restaurant via Postmates and received all parts of the order, except for the pizza. I immediately called the restaurant, because there was no way to contact the Postmates driver who dropped off the food. When I spoke to the restaurant, and the pizza was ready and sitting with the rest of the food to be picked up, but the Postmates driver did not pick it up. He apparently did not check the contents of the order. It’s pretty obvious if a pizza is missing from a bag of food. When I spoke to Postmates, the representative was incredibly unhelpful in trying to resolve this matter and stated that the only way to obtain the pizza that was sitting, ready at the restaurant was to request a refund and re-order the same pizza, so a new driver could be dispatched. This is unacceptable. If it is the driver’s fault that the order was missing, he should be responsible for picking up what he left behind. Furthermore, a subsequent order would have taken significantly longer. I have spoken with the restaurant, and they use an alternative delivery service, so I will not be using Postmates again. Others should be aware that Postmates does not value their customers, and other options are available.
  • They’ve changed things (UPDATE 5/23)


    By Kanxizmsmosaall
    This company is unprofessional. After leaving this review, my account was suspended. There’s zero contact information for a customer service line. They have to come to you. You can’t just call them, which is ridiculous. So upon doing so, they get back in about 20-30 minutes saying my account was flagged for suspicious activity and cannot be reinstated at this time. They didn’t tell me why it was suspended (what suspicious activity was apparently being done) nor why they couldn’t fix it. This is ridiculous. You get less options and selections upon ordering. Take for example, if you order from QDoba, you should have options to add into your order because it’s all custom. You should be able to select what kind of beans, tortilla, meat, rice, etc. you don’t even get half of the options you would get in store and that doesn’t make sense. You don’t actually get to customize anything how you want it, and there’s multiple restaurants with this error. There’s no space to “add additional information” either for a sauce or something you know they have in store, but isn’t being listed as an option here. Also, the app works until you actually place your order. Then it shuts down and kicks you out of it completely to where you can’t follow the order or get in contact with someone, should you need to. This has been happening for weeks. Every time I open it, it crashes. But only after the order is made.
  • Disastrous app


    By kmc3398
    Can’t even begin to describe how angry I am after not getting what I ordered AND being robbed by hidden service fee! Tried to order food but the menu was from a completely different place. Then I went with my second choice and they had the menu for a different location which led to a phone call from the driver telling me 90% of what I ordered wasn’t available. Now my actual total is completely different from what I actually ordered. App lies on status of order, I’m watching it say my order is being prepared and about to leave for delivery and that’s when I got a call to say nothing I ordered is available. Worse food ordering app I’ve used. Wow! Just noticed an additional sneaky charge, a service fee of 20%, in addition to delivery fee and tip. Unfortunately you don’t even see this until the order is done. When you’re making your order this is hidden in with sales tax but after your card is charged it shows a service fee. This is theft! If I’d have seen a service and delivery fee I never would’ve ordered, but I guess they know this. This app is getting deleted immediately. They’d make more money off repeat business if it wasn’t so shady. Instead they choose to steal extra money on a one time transaction. It’s one thing to knowingly overpay for something you want but I not only paid more than I was aware but I didn’t even get what I wanted. Even after I found out they didn’t have the stuff I wanted, my second choices were incorrect also. Total disaster!
  • DO NOT USE POSTMATES


    By Dorduda
    As a person that has been using other food delivery apps for a while I was expecting so much from Postmates. The first time I used it and item was missing and the driver did not care to clarify it with me. I thought they were inexperienced, so I let it slide. The second time I ordered the driver called and asked to repeat my order, which I did. I repeated it 3 times as to make sure they got it right. When I received my order there was a full meal missing. We were very disappointed because a person of my household had to go without their favorite food. I thought to myself “well, third times the charm”. I placed a small order, the driver called me letting me know about the “system being down” at X place, so they will comp me with a drink. My order already had a drink so I thought “wow, two drinks!”. When the driver came my order was incomplete, had an item missing which he did not mention via the phone call. And they never comped me and never gave me that “free” drink. And my food was the worst quality it has every been. I don’t know how Postmates gets their drivers, but they are fully incompetent where I live. They don’t have the decency to call when an item is not available and let the buyer know beforehand. I have never had this issue with other delivery services before I used Postmates. I’ll stick with the other ones. Suggestion: At least give some basic training to your drivers on customer service for they are the forefront of your company.
  • Disappointed


    By gridbdk
    Why am I paying for the Unlimited if you guys don’t wanna take full responsibility for your drivers actions they mess up our orders and then when we report it (Postmates Support) favorited thing to say is .... *“After continuous research, unfortunately, we will not be able to take further action regarding this matter. Due to the frequent refunds on your account, we are unable to give any compensation for the next 30 days until further notice. I apologize for the inconvenience.”* !!????.... like do you really think it’s our fault your employees are ordering our food and messing it up or completely not delivering our food at all!!? Like I lost track of how many Postmates drivers have ran off with my food and Postmates only response is the one above its obvious that these people are strangers and all of them are NOT good and they’re going to mess over people food or simply not deliver it and take it, so how about you stop making your customers feel like it’s their fault that their food was incorrect or not delivered or half of their order is missing.....because its not it’s YOUR responsibility to take care of what happens to your customers food that is supposed to be delivered especially your Unlimited Members.
  • Third try was not a charm.


    By JaidenBenz
    This app is completely bonkers. I just arrived at my hotel after a long drive and needed something to eat desperately. My first attempt to order was accepted and showed it was being prepared. About 5 mins later with a vague “restaurant closed” message my order is cancelled. That’s Awesome, because the restaurant was open, and you said they received the order and began preparing it. Did they run out of a vegetable fried rice? more time wasted and a first round of multiple credit card charges and authorizations. Second order goes through and now hunger has turned to pain has turned to oh no I fell asleep waiting for this joker to say he delivered my order to my door when he snaps a picture of him holding it who knows where, but it most certainly is not at my hotel door, I show no missed calls or messages, and yup, I’ve been fully charged for this foolishness. It’s not even worth the keystrokes or your time at how bad the subsequent order went, or how overly complicated they make billing with multiple required authorizations and transactions for a single order. Not to mention you may think you’re order is delivery charge free or that you ordered extra to avoid “small cart surcharges” but you better double check coz I was shocked to see both of these charges pop on after, when my cart showed both credited and to top it off the order was well over 45 mins beyond the “no later than” time and the delivery persons number was not In service. 🤑
  • Literally the worse food app


    By Bansheelord
    I’ve given them multiple chances to not make me hate this app. I always order then it would take for ever so I started paying for the faster delivery. Then every time the driver would be late instead of being late they click that it has been delivered and show up 10-15 mins later I would still get charged the full amount because the driver lied. I assume to avoid a ding from Postmates, or if they where super late they would click delivered and just never show up then I was forced to email a complaint. they didn’t even read my complaint just copy and pasted some General reply back to me I sent another email and they where a hair more helpful and gave me a 10$ credit. So I was like well I’ll try one more time sense I have credit then the driver is yet again 20mins late so I didn’t want to eat cold food so I canceled the order then get a email I was being charged the full amount and even being charged the credited amount, because I guess you get charged the full amount if you cancel when in delivery Dosnt matter how late they are or how cold the food is zero cancelation, I guess so now the driver gets to keep my food and the company still collects my money, so I’m Officially done with this app they hire complete morons to drive for them and there customer service is just as bad honestly try Uber eats or any other appbthen this one. This isn’t me complaining about one bad experience there has been about 10 in a row
  • Terrible Service


    By Blackroses24
    I placed an order to receive a home wrecker burrito at Moes. When I finally get my order it was wrong. I figured no big deal I’ll contact Postmates. Which I might add is terrible that is only through email and they take forever to reply. I tell them in the email my order was wrong and I even have the wrong receipt. They reply back and said everything I ordered is what I got. I’m looking at the plate they gave me and it’s definitely not the burrito I ordered but someone else’s food which I might add wasn’t even complete because they ordered a meal that was suppose to even come with a drink I didn’t even get. I even took proof of the receipt and the meal I got which definitely doesn’t coincide with what I ordered on the app. I reply back to them and they still investigated again and said again what I ordered is what I got. How the hell you going to tell me the burrito I ordered is what I got, when your not even here in my house looking at the plate I have. Long story short they gave me a credit for the issue. I don’t really care about the food. Food is food. But what really bothers me is that fact that they kept telling me what I ordered is what I got and the person who was suppose to get this meal I’m sure got mines or someone else’s. Its the principle what matters. If that’s how this company conducts business than they shouldn’t be running this business. Very unprofessional. I’ll just use the credit and delete this app. Terrible service and shame on them.
  • Watch out for credit card fraud with this company!


    By Maxtnyc420
    This is the worst company I've ever dealt with! I have a literally dealt with better customer service stationed out of Third World countries where they barely speak English! Following placing a single order it took me five days to resolve a simple issue! Nine days later I am still dealing with the ramifications of having placed one simple food order through this company. For the last three days I've been trying to get in touch with this company because they have been making unauthorized charges onto my credit card. I have sent a dozen emails in the last 72 hours and not a single person from this company has bothered to respond to me! They are literally conducting illegal and fraudulent activity and won't even respond to the consumer who is being affected! Nine days ago I asked them to cancel my account and I am still waiting for them to do that and in the interim I keep getting charges even though I'm not placing any deliveries! The only way to reach anyone at this company is through the stupidest support request form on their website and then you need to wait for them to respond! Please tell me how email is a suitable form of customer service when you're dealing with food delivery?! If you have an issue with your food on Saturday guess what you may not hear from the company till Monday! Literally just save yourself from the frustration, The grief and the headaches that will follow by ever using this company
  • Never using Postmates again


    By out of patience for postmates
    I have had multiple cases of my orders being marked as delivered when they aren’t actually being dropped off to me. Customer service responses are so generic like they are just cut and paste for every single issue. I once had an order take over an hour and a half before being picked up and so I cancelled it since the food would have been cold anyway and Postmates told me that they were still going to charge me because the driver picked it up and was in route to my house even though it was an hour after the estimated delivery time. I never once got an update that the order was going to be late. I called the restaurant and they informed me that my food had been sitting there the entire time waiting for a courier. Other times, the app allowed me to order from restaurants that were closed and my order just sat there until I had to manually cancel. I have witnessed drivers slowed down outside my house, mark the items as delivered and drove off without bringing anything to the door. I had a restaurant call me and tell me that they were cancelling my order because the driver was screaming at them trying to get a lot of extra food for free by saying that it was a part of my order. When items are wrong on my order I get told that they won’t refund me even if I’m missing the items that I paid extra for (like guacamole for example). There are so many other food delivery services. No one needs to ever use this app.
