FAQs

How do I get paid?

Once a customer confirms a booking by making payment, the funds are safely held in a holding account, until the event is complete.⁣ After the event, you'll need to send an invoice to Feast It and then we'll release payment to you on the following Tuesday or Thursday. ⁣ ⁣ Read more here: https://feastit.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/64000192754-how-do-i-get-paid-⁣ ⁣

Can I amend a quote after the customer has booked?

Yes, if you need to make a change, like add extra portions, simply submit another quote to the customer for extra cost/portions.  If the customer wishes to reduce guests/portions, please contact our team with your new cost and we can manually add this quote and arrange a part refund if required.

Can my quote price be higher than the customer's budget?

You'll notice that some customers indicate that their budget is flexible, others won't. Don't be put off - on average, customers spend 15% more than they say they will and on some occasions, significantly more! We curate our suppliers to create truly memorable events, and to attract high-quality customers, but as is human nature people are always looking for a good deal. This does sometimes lead to customers underestimating the cost of booking suppliers for events. 

How do the most successful suppliers use the Feast It platform?

1. They quote. A lot. We found that on average it takes between 10-15 quotes per month to win one booking. This varies slightly depending on geography, vertical and type of offering, but the most booked suppliers are submitting in excess of 250 quotes a month.  2.  They’re flexible with their filters There's a benefit to experimenting with filters in the 'Open events' section of your dashboard. Customers don’t always have a clear budget in mind, and on average spend 15% more than their stated budget. Our top suppliers are a bit more lenient initially and do a really good job of guiding customers towards realistic expectations.
