No Hiring Necessary

As the saying goes, “if the customer can’t come to you, then you must go to the customer”. But how can I afford hiring delivery drivers? With the new Postmates add-on, that is not necessary. With our Total Restaurant POS, customers place their orders online. That order then prints to your kitchen and goes on to a Postmates’ driver. They pick it up and deliver the meal to the customer. Providing delivery service without the additional hire.

You’re In Control

Along with a delivery drive that is not on the payroll, this Postmates add-on provides you with a certain level of control. For starters, you can set the minimum order amount and prep time needed. On top of that, you can decide what percentage of the tip goes to your restaurant and what percent will go to the Postmates’ delivery driver. Do keep in mind that while it is tempting to keep all the money you can, having Postmates’ delivery drives avoiding your restaurant could cause issues in the long run. That decision is yours to make. Unlike the way other food delivery apps work, this Postmates add-on provides instant funding from a sale. No more having to wait till the end of the week/ month to get it all in one lump sum.

With these benefits in mind, how much does it cost? Unlike other food delivery apps, which base their costs off of a percentage of the sale, this Postmates add-on only has one low monthly flat rate. Once the online ordering feature is enabled on a Total Restaurant POS system, the add-on is just $50 per month, regardless of how many transactions Postmates delivers in a month. That should be easy on everyone’s wallet.
