Postmates will launch its first international market in Mexico City today. The on-demand platform boasts of over 1,000 couriers and merchant partners on board. This implies that people living in areas such as Ciudad Universitaria, Lomas de Tecamachalco, Jardines Del Pedregal, Roma, Cuauhtemoc, Juarez, Condesa, and Polanco will of course enjoy easy access to on-demand delivery service.
Sean Plaice, the CTO and co-founder of Postmates recently said in a statement that they believe Mexico City is an ideal marketplace for Postmates to provide its on-demand delivery package. The city is actually one of the major urban customer markets in the entire universe, and it has a vibrant food scene and economy. In the United States, the Postmates delivery service company is better known for their intuitive app experience and reliable network, which makes it amazingly easier to unlock some of the unsurpassed food deliveries in Mexico City. The company sincerely apologies for the difficulty to pronounce Postmates in Spanish, but they guarantee Mexicans that this part will be the only hard of all Postmates experience.
In the United States, the company offers 100,000 couriers, which perfectly complements over 2.5 million deliveries every single month. By launching their service in Mexico City, Postmates will be openly kick-starting competition with other firms such as SinDelantal (owned by iFood and JUST EAT) and UberEATS in several areas of food delivery.
When it comes to the grocery part of it all, which Postmates lately invested more resources in the United States, the firm will have to compete with startups such as Mercadoni and Cornershop. For that reason, Postmates is giving out 1,000 free pesos that are basically worth of delivery credits that will last for a month. This is a strategy majorly aimed at attracting customers, and after it ends delivery fees will cost 25 pesos per single order.
