The Porto striker was on target either side of half-time as Portugal continued their prolonged preparations for hosting Euro 2004.
Against an inexperienced Bolivian outfit in Lisbon, Portugal were in control from the kick-off despite the absences of Luis Figo and Rui Costa.
Portugal grabbed the lead on eight minutes when Jorge Andrade headed home a cross from the left wing.
The advantage was quickly doubled when Newcastle United starlet Hugo Viana centred for captain Fernando Couto to head home.
The highly-rated Postiga then got in on the act on 41 minutes when he headed in the third goal of the evening.
The scoring was completed on 49 minutes when Viana's raking pass was controlled by Postiga and coolly dispatched into the back of the net.
