Postmates is a US-based delivery company that supplies ready meals from local restaurants, groceries, and other goods on demand. Partnering with numerous local eateries, Postmates will satisfy some of your wildest cravings. Sushi, noodles, salt & straw, spicy wings, beer, and even smoothies – all these are just a few taps away. What distinguishes Postmates from other food delivery apps is that it offers an unlimited free delivery subscription and allows you to pick up your order on your own without having to stand in line.

So far, we have tested several food delivery apps and found bugs in all of them. So we decided to check if Postmates user experience can be enhanced, and here are some of Postmates bugs that we discovered.
