Postmates first defined itself as delivery service, but the start-up recently shifted some focus to Postmates Pickup, which allows certain options to be grabbed by the buyer. The new feature may seem like a downgrade, but the inclusion of pickup will allow greater flexibility within the company's framework and will give customers a greater option when retrieving their desired items. The Postmates Pickup feature was recently tested in San Francisco and the company has already confirmed that it will be rolling out officially "in the next couple of weeks."
The concept behind the pickup feature was developed as Postmates was looking to expand the retail service to merchants. The Postmates Pickup feature will run initially in San Francisco, but the start-up is already planning to expand the service to other large cities in the US. Los Angeles and New York are expected to receive the service soon, but it is unclear whether or not the Pickup feature will be immediately available.
