Easy guide for creating a site like Postmates
Step 1: Getting the concept
It’s been a pleasure for us to present such article like this since there are many startups who are starting a business for local delivery. I would like first to explain what is what Postmates does. Postmates is an on-demand delivery software that will help your users to place an order online, choosing a business/store as per their location and proceed to place an order by paying online.
Usually, you can order from the website and also from a mobile App, they have it ready to get and use. After we have mentioned what Postmates does, let´s review what tools in technology you will need if you are looking to do something similar.
One perfect solution & easy would be to get the software services of a company that offers one hundred percent of the products – Ordering.co is a company which does that and also offers support in case you have problems. Use this form to get assistance
Step 2: Which tech tools do you need?
It is extremely important that you have the right quality for these products because your image, reputation, and conversion rate will depend on them. Also, the products have to do with the experience that your users will have when using your platform and this is a very important factor so people can judge if your service is good or not.
The products to create a site like Postmates are:
1. A multi-vendor online ordering website
The difference here in comparison with a normal online shop is that these sites provide a listing of providers so the user can choose one provider, check his menu and order the products he wants. The online ordering site should be mobile responsive, clean, great speed and a user-friendly design.
This multi-vendor website is a must if you want to create a site like Postmates.
2. Online Ordering App for iOS and Android
3. Delivery App for iOS and Android
4. Business App for iOS and Android to receive orders
With a business App, you can get sound notifications when an order has arrived. You can also accept or reject the order. Entering the approximate time for delivery is also a must nowadays because the users (who order food) want to be well informed.
A business app is necessary to create a site like Postmates
5. Delivery Dashboard to manage orders, routes & drivers
The delivery dashboard is also a must if you want to create a site like Postmates
6. Dashboard for upload & administration of content

7. Notify the business owner when an order comes in
There are other ways to notify the business owner that there is a new order. For example the dashboard for administration, email, GPRS printers, Fax and much more.
Ordering.co can offer you many integrations already done to solve this disadvantage. Alternative notification channels are an excellent solution for the creation of a site like Postmates.
8. Payment gateways to accept payment online of users
In that case, we have an extension called White-Label Extension, which will help you to remove our Ordering Co-brand name completely from the web software and from the apps as well which you can see at the bottom of our website and app page.
White-labeling is required when any person needs to do reselling or even when they don’t want to show their partner company, which is legal. You even can rename it by either your own brand name or with some other brand name.
10. Ordering BOT
This is the only app that is being introduced now by ordering only and is not introduced in any other ordering software yet, so it is new.
