Postmates, a leader in delivering anything you want on-demand, introduced Postmates Party on Wednesday, an innovative new product that gives customers a fun way to save money on popular restaurants like Shake Shack, Blaze Pizza, The Halal Guys, and more. When in the app, Postmates Party shows customers a list of places that people in their neighborhood are ordering from at that exact moment. By joining the Party, customers can share the delivery from popular restaurants and get free delivery. 

Launching in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago, Seattle, Las Vegas, Long Beach, Phoenix, San Diego, Orange County and Philadelphia, each Party has a five-minute time limit in which the customer must place their order to get the deal. To join a Party, just open the Postmates app and tap on the Postmates Party tab. The trending merchants will be shown and customers who place an order before the time runs out get free delivery on the Postmates Party order.

“We are driven by the vision of creating a logistics infrastructure that allows goods to move throughout a city at nearly zero cost to the consumer. Postmates Party is the latest innovation in on-demand delivery that will help us deliver on this vision,” says Bastian Lehmann, CEO and co-founder of Postmates. “Postmates Party is a fun way to give customers the option to save money by ordering from popular restaurants that people all around them are ordering from in real time.”

Postmates leads the industry in merchant selection with more than 500,000 restaurants and retailers on the platform. Delivering from nearly 3,000 cities nationally and serving 70 percent of the US population, Postmates maintains a leadership position in LA and the southwest where it holds No. 1 market share.
