Home-Based Jobs and Gigs – Make Local Deliveries in Your Car for Postmates
If you’re looking for an extra-cash gig that’s like Amazon Flex, Postmates is hiring Couriers to make local deliveries for up to $25/hr. You’ll be taking food or merchandise to area residents on your own schedule.
Pay is by direct deposit 4-7 business days after the delivery.
“Shopping local with no waiting” is a powerful offer for millions of time-starved Americans, as a growing number of delivery companies have discovered. Postmates has received over $140M in funding, and currently operates in over 90 cities in 24 states:
