Newsflash: effective immediately, we’re cutting delivery fees in Boston by 40%. This means Flour Bakery, Shake Shack, Boloco and more delivered at nearly half the price and twice the convenience.

We also heard from many Bostonians that you wanted the ability to tip your Postmate. You asked, we listened. Today we’re rolling out the option to tip within the app when you sign out for your delivery. So if you had a great experience, feel free to thank your Postmate by adding a tip, available in increments of 5%.

The service you love, now for even less. Your wallet (and your stomach) will thank you ;)
