Apple is now promoting Apple Pay through a partnership with a delivery service.
Postmates Unlimited offers consumers a pretty straightforward proposition: Subscribe to the service for $9.99 a month, and you can get free shipping from participating merchants on any order over $20.00. And now, if new customers sign up using Apple Pay, they can use the service without having to pay the monthly fee for November or December.
The partnership appears to be one of Apple’s bids to prompt an expansion in use of Apple Pay during the holiday shopping period. And the service may be entering retail’s busiest season with considerable momentum, given Tim Cook’s assertion in Apple’s Q1 update for 2017 that Apple Pay transactions were up 450 percent year-over-year for that quarter.
Consumers have until November 23rd to take advantage of the new Postmates Unlimited promotion.
