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.
Postmates will steal your money !!! Beware!!!
We had a driver who refused to deliver to the door even though I was alone with a newborn and could not go down to the street to pick up the order. He was rude and he told me he would be returning the food if I could not leave me apartment. I told him then that he would have to do this. He left and I assumed that was it and I would have to reach out to customer service. A half hour later, the guy starts to call and call to try to deliver. I guess he realized he would have to eat the bill since I did not cancel. We had left already once my husband got home, to go get food. I contacted customer service and they told me that they would only be refunding a small portion of my bill even though we did not receive any food. Postmates has the absolute worst customer service and I will no longer be giving them my business (and obviously canceling my Postmates unlimited service) and I will be making sure to post this information on social media so my friends and family can see that they stole my money to pay to feed their driver. They are stealing money from good customers and refusing to do anything about it. Not refunding someone’s money for something they never received is stealing no matter how you look at it. I never write reviews, but this is honestly the worst customer service and company that I have ever dealt with. Good riddance Postmates! I’ll be using ubereats and door dash from now on!
They’ve changed things (UPDATE 5/23)
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.
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
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.
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 they 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.
Would not trust this service.
Had the worst experience using this service to get chicken wings from Wing King delivered to my house. I placed my order using the app at 6:40pm. First of all, the menu prices on the app aren’t the same as the actual restaurant so you don’t really know how much you’ll get charged til the very end. Initially my order was going to be about $45. The app states that it will take 50-60min to get my order, that’s fair. After 40min passes at 7:19pm, I get a text from my Postmates driver saying the order will be ready in one hour. Over an hour passes by at 8:36pm, and my food still has not came or have I heard from the driver. I call the Wing King to ask what happened and they state that I need to call my Postmates driver because the food is ready and has not been picked up. I attempt to call/text the number that text me and can’t get through. Finally on the app I find a number that reaches the driver and she says that the kitchen got backed up and she’s going to get the food right now and be right over. My food came to the door at 9:14pm. Cold and with no receipt. Later find out that the app is charging me $75 for my food from an additional $12 service fee and a $6 delivery fee. I did not tip. I followed through with Postmates and filled out twice that I had a bad driver and bad service but no one has contacted me in any way or form. I’m absolutely shocked. Please learn from my mistake and do not waste your time or money using this app or service!
I was excited about this app but after my first use, I deleted and will not use again. I placed an order. The driver assigned to my order went to pick it up and the order was not at the store. The driver contacted me to let me know and said he didn’t know what to do. I tried contacting postmates but there was no number to call. You can only submit a request. The issue was eventually resolved and my order was placed and my driver picked up my order. When my driver was on his way to me, he said the postmates app stopped working. I had to give him verbal directions on the phone. My order was delivered much later than it was supposed to arrive. This was not the driver’s fault. My driver, Melvin, was very professional and nice. He was awesome. He spent over 2 hours on my order. The app was messed up and would not let me give him a tip. My husband contacted postmates through Twitter to see how we could tip him. My order ended up being refunded, thankfully, but we still wanted to tip our driver. Postmates told my husband that we wouldn’t be able to do that. Melvin spent over 2 hours helping me get my food and he was not compensated for it. I would have given him cash but I didn’t have any on hand. Completely unimpressed with this app and the company. Even though I got a free meal, I will never use them again because it was more of a hassle than a convenience. I also don’t think they treat their employees very fair and I won’t support a business that does this.
Watch out for credit card fraud with this company!
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
Cancel orders missing items no refunds
Lately I've had horrible experiences with the deliveries and customer service did not compensate for it. They were rude and brushed me off after I told them I was upset that I had a missing item from my order and they refunded me less than the amount of the item. Then they still refused to refund me the proper amount, citing that they had given me a credit previously for another mistake they had made. This was a dinner order that they canceled on me after an hour and a half of waiting and 30+ minutes of me trying to help navigate the driver to my house. I'm pretty sure he was high and just gave up. I ended up having to work harder and spend more time trying to receive my dinner delivery that never arrived than if I would have just gone and picked up something myself. I was really upset and the small credit they gave me for that did not make me feel better at all. It actually felt insulting. Then for them to short my refund on their next mistake because they felt they already made up for it from this previous small credit felt completely outrageous. I've never written a review before, but I am so upset about how I was treated by the customer service at Postmates that I feel everyone should know how poorly they treat their once loyal longtime customers. Apparently they're doing so well they don't care about the individual anymore. I urge vendors and patrons to use other food delivery apps instead.
Poor Customer Service response
Put in an order with postmates which was estimated to take a while but then Postmates miscommunicated our order to the establishment even after repeated confirmations from the restaurant to postmates - an issue that we found out was frequent as the employee of the establishment told us not to use postmates - but this was not brought to our attention until the driver was at the restaurant to pick up the order (already 90 minutes after we ordered). The instructions we gave were important because I am a vegetarian and the mix up caused there to be meat in the food. This forced the driver and the restaurant to have to deal with the miscommunication and re-do the whole order, causing the order to take another 30 minutes to get to us and wasting the time of the driver and costing him income as well. Customer support was contacted about this terrible experience, as a previous order we had with them had been stolen and we were fed up, to get a refund for the expensive food we had to wait 2 hours for and then it was “resolved” without even allowing us to discuss with a representative. It was not handled well and we do not intend to use the service again. It’s really bad when even restaurant employees are suggesting that we order through different services rather than Postmates. I just hope our driver was compensated for his time as he was forced to handle the whole issue even though that isn’t his responsibility.
Frustrating to use, Terrible customer service
I spent over $60 on a group order at SweetGreen. One of the salads was unavailable because they were out of one of the modifiers. The Postmates app wouldn’t tell me which modifier and I got a text threatening to cancel the whole order if I didn’t select a substitute in 10 minutes. I made some changes (hard to know what to choose because I didn’t know which modifier they were out of). Postmates then charged me $1 for substituting one of my items, even though it wasn’t my fault. A few minutes later, I got the same text again, saying they were out of one of the modifiers to my salad and again said they were going to cancel the whole order in 10 minutes. I submitted a support request and when I didn’t hear back within 10 minutes, i had to cancel that salad (I didn’t want all of my coworkers to not get their lunch!). When I got a call from Postmates support a few minutes later, they told me the modifier SweetGreen was out of was lentils and I was refused a refund. I requested that they waive the small cart fee and service fee on my new order without lentils, they said it was my fault because they told me I shouldn’t have canceled that salad. I explained again that I couldn’t have the order cancelled for all of my coworkers so I had no choice. In total I spent almost 10 minutes on the phone, which means in total Postmates wasted about a half hour of my time- with NO REFUND for my struggling.
The app usually works but I wish they had a phone number for instant support. I never know if I should order a new meal elsewhere or wait around cranky and hungry until someone emails me back. Usually a helpful response takes at least an hour. Postmates will send you an email with someone attempting to respond by pasting the answers to their FAQ in the response...as if users haven’t already read the FAQ / used the app before. It’s a tad insulting. Most of your experience will depend on how ambitious your driver is. Some of the drivers seem a tad entitled while others are excellent. I usually tip between $4 and $8, but I’ll tip lower if the driver complains about having to take an elevator or park their car. I also wish drivers would confirm the order before leaving the restaurant... I’ve gotten the wrong food on several occasions. Perhaps if postmates shared the average customer tip with the drivers, the drivers would make more of an effort making deliveries for customers that do want to pay well for convenience. Also, don’t bother with unlimited. I tried this and they just tacked on a higher “service” fee instead of a “delivery” fee—either way, you end up paying extra in addition to your membership. In my opinion, unlimited is pointless unless all extra fees (apart from taxes obviously) are eliminated.
2 issues in one week
I placed a order with Everest . When my driver went to get my order he was denied the food because the pre paid card the drivers are given was declined . He was awesome and tried everything he could for 20 min. Worst part is when you try to contact them with a problem there is just a email which they do not respond too in timely manner . The WORST part is that my driver had to cancel my order on his end . He told me that if he cancels more then 3 order he gets terminated . How is that ETHICAL??? Not only is this poor guy out of money but time as well and he gets penalized for something he had no control over . Got my money back two days later decided to give them one more chance . My mistake.I ordered ice cream and 1 hour and 20 min later I get a call from my driver that she could not find the place . And when she finally did all they had was vanilla when the app showed 15+ flavors. She suggested we cancel the order . When I tried to cancel they said they where going to charge me still for my order. Seriously,no this is not ok . Why should I get charged for YOU did not have the proper info in the website . Or that the driver waited a hour plus to come contact me about my order? I would not try postmates again . It’s a shame too since I haven’t had a issue before in the past and would buy gift cards for friends and family. Seems like I’ll be moving on from postmates . Here I calms door dash or u re eats .
The don’t care for their drivers
I am a doordash,grub hub, and previous postmates driver. And after a year of doing a combination of all three I have noticed that postmates cares the LEAST for their drivers. The pay the drivers $4 as a base pay. I’ve had orders that were 8.9 miles, driving, away from restaurant to customers house and I got $4 I called postmates to see why I only got that and they said that because non driving miles (like if you looked on a map and drew a straight line) it was only 3.87 miles. She then explained that the customer did not leave a tip. Ok that’s fine customers are not obligated to but as a company you should give your drivers something to make up for customers that don’t tip or ones who don’t tip as much..doordash and grub hub do. Postmates charges the 20% service anyways. I just don’t understand how a company can value a large part of their “employees” at $4 for an hour and half of work. And it’s not just one time this has happened. It has been 9/10 orders I’ve done. Also I’ve driven to countless restaurants only to get there and have the order canceled which the app never told me and when I call postmates to say that I drove all the way there but didn’t get a notification they say sorry and that the app did say that it was canceled well before but I use the gps so I know where to go, so I don’t have the app open and they don’t get notifications. Please DONT use postmates...they don’t value the drivers at all.
