• Postmates Same-Day Delivery Option Made Available for Apple Products in Manhattan

    The Cupertino California company has expanded Postmates, the same day delivery service, to Manhattan for most products that are in its lineup and ordered through the Apple Online Store or the Apple Store app. To be more specific, the service is available for the Mac, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, Apple Watch, Beats products, cables and accessories along with several other items that are in stock at local Apple Stores. Using the service will set consumers back a $19 flat rate fee with most products having a guaranteed delivery within a two-hour window and certain products having longer same-day wait times. Users who decide to use the Apple Store app are provided with estimated deliver times and tracking information as the product is transported from the Apple Store to the delivery location.

    The new Postmates same-day delivery option is available in most areas of Manhattan with 37 of the 43 zip codes being included in the service area. Neighborhoods that have limited coverage include Northern areas such as Inwood and Washington Heights. That being said, it should be noted that the service is unavailable on Roosevelt Island as well as the other New York City boroughs.

    For those of you who didnít know, Apple originally launched the Postmates same-day delivery service in the San Francisco Bay Area back in May. Customers who didnít live in an area where Postmates delivers would not see the same-day delivery options for any Apple Products. Instead they would receive standard shipment delivery times without an option for courier delivery.

    A key thing to note here is that Postmates operates in several other major US cities as well including the following:

    • Los Angeles
    • Chicago
    • Washington D.C.
    • Seattle
    • Boston
    • Philadelphia
    • Miami
    • Atlanta
    • Denver
    • San Diego
    • Portland
    • Phoenix
    • Austin
    • Houston
    • Dallas
    • San Antonio
    • Minneapolis
    • Charlotte

    Despite operating in these cities though, same-day deliveries for the Apple Online Store and Apple Store app remain limited to the Bay Area and the New York City borough of Manhattan.
