Setting up your Postmates order tablet

Once your tablet arrives, it's time to activate! Follow the instructions below to get ready to receive orders:

1. Setting up the tablet
Place your tablet on the provided stand. We recommend keeping the tablet plugged in during hours of operation.

2. Connect to your wi-fi network
Before opening the Postmates app, select “Settings” from the tablet home screen to connect to your in-house wi-fi network. A wi-fi internet connection is required to activate and operate the tablet. 

3. Sign in to Postmates Order App

  • PIN Activation Login
    • When you're at your merchant location, open the Postmates app and call the phone number presented on the screen. Be sure to use your merchant phone line, as it is required to receive the four-digit PIN.
    • Enter your four-digit PIN on the tablet.
    • Once submitted, verify your merchant location or choose the correct location, if multiple options are presented. 
    • After verifying your merchant location, your tablet and partnership will be activated. 

  • Email Activation Login
    • If you want to sign into the tablet with your email and password, select "Activate with Email" on the screen. 
    • Use the email address that you used to sign up with Postmates and the corresponding password you created.
    • If you need to reset your password, use this link.
    • Once you've successfully logged in using your email and password, your tablet and partnership will be activated.

If you're unable to log into the tablet using either of the above methods, please contact our Merchant Support Team by email or phone.
4. Connect your printer (optional)
In order to print orders directly from the tablet, connect a supported printer. If your printer is compatible, go to "Business Settings" and select "Printer" on the Postmates Order App. Select "Connect a Star Printer" and choose your device on the screen. 
Until you log into the tablet, orders will either be placed over the phone or in-person and paid by credit card. Once you have logged in and activated your tablet, all orders will be automatically routed to the device and payments will become automated.
