Booking Lead Time

The booking lead time is how much advance notice you, the Kitchen host, require before a Food Maker can use your kitchen. In other words, it's how much time you need from when a maker creates a booking to when they're allowed in your space. 


Changing Booking Lead Time

When you create your kitchen listing, the booking lead time will default to 48 hours. Kitchen Hosts are encouraged to carefully consider how much time they need to prep for a Food Maker, as a longer lead time could hinder your listing's success in some cases. The minimum allowable lead time is 4 hours.


To change your lead time:

  • Sign into your profile.
  • Tap on Listings > Select the Kitchen Section you want to edit.
  • Navigate to the "Features" tab where you'll find the field for Booking Lead Time.
