Shopify Offers Same-Day Delivery with Postmates Option

Looking to differentiate from competitors on fulfillment speed, Shopify is offering its small-to-medium-sized merchant customers same-day delivery services – often within an hour – through an integration partnership with Postmates, according to a Shopify blog post. The option is available in the 200+ U.S. cities where Postmates operates.

To sweeten the deal, Shopify is giving eligible merchants up to $50 in free Postmates deliveries through May 5. Normally, Postmates delivery fees start at $5 per order and are determined by the distance from pickup to dropoff as well as the capacity of the platform. Additionally, a 9% service fee is applied to the purchase price.

In December, Shopify offered free same-day delivery in the week prior to Christmas via UberRUSH.
