Incentives - Bonuses and Guarantees

Postmates offers a variety of incentives designed to help increase your earnings. When you’ve qualified for an incentive, you will be notified via email or in your app, so keep your eyes peeled! 

Here are the types of incentives we offer: 

  1. Bonus Per Delivery: Earn an additional payout bonus for every delivery accepted and completed within a certain timeframe
  2. Guaranteed Earnings: Complete a certain number of deliveries within a set period of time and earn a guaranteed minimum payout

  3. Crushers: Complete a certain number of deliveries within a set time period and earn an additional payout bonus

  4. Tiered Guaranteed Earnings: Similar to Guaranteed Earnings, but includes minimum delivery tiers associated with different payout amounts

Please note that to qualify for any of the above incentives, deliveries must be accepted and completed within the specified timeframe. For example:

“Earn a $2 bonus for each delivery you complete between 5:00PM – 9:00PM.”

Meg picks up an order at 6:00 pm and completes it at 6:19 pm. She IS eligible for the bonus.
John picks up an order at 4:55 pm and completes it at 5:15 pm. He is NOT eligible for the bonus.
Ryan picks up an order at 8:50 pm and completes it at 9:05 pm. He is NOT eligible for the bonus.

Enrollment in multiple incentives:
If you're enrolled in more than one incentive at the same time, all earnings will count toward the incentive with the highest potential earnings. 

Payout timing:
Incentive payouts will appear within 24 hours. Those funds will be transferred to your bank account and available within 3–4 days.

Batched and chained deliveries:
Batched and chained deliveries count towards your incentive requirements.
