Food Listings

How often and which part of the day can I make a food listing?

You can post listings for your assorted bundles daily at any time of the day, as often as you would like.  We currently do not charge any listing fees, and its free for you to use! 

What kind of food items can be listed?

Generally, any food items that you sell in-store and are safe to consume can be added in the bundle and listed. You can see our Merchant Terms for more information on how to ensure food safety.

Does the food have to be left aside before listing it? How do I store it?

You do not have to set it aside. However, you need to ensure that you have the quantity available listed on our platform should there be a reservation by your stated collection time.

Storing of the food item should be done in accordance with the Singapore's Food Safety Standards,  just as how you would normally store your food item.


What’s next after the buyer reserves the food item?

You will be notified when the buyer has reserved the assorted bundle.  Upon notification, you can choose to set it aside or package it accordingly for collection.  Customers are expected to collect at your stated collection timing before the closing hours.

It is after the stated collection hours but my customers still have not turned up for their collection. What do I do?

We understand you need to close for the day and some food might turn bad if kept overnight. Hence, when customers fail to turn up to collect their purchase within the collection timing, the shop reserves the right to keep the purchase or sell it to another customer.
