Postmates is launching a new feature called Postmates Party that lets customers within the same neighborhood pool their orders. In return, these customers get the food delivered for free, eliminating a major pinch point for potential Postmates users.
Customers using the app can tap on the Postmates Party tab, which will show trending merchants from which people in their neighborhood are ordering at that exact moment. By joining the “party,” customers can share the delivery from popular restaurants and get free delivery.
And there is an important caveat. The party feature has a five-minute time limit in which the customer must place their order to get the deal.
