The ability to re-arrange one's shop

It would be great to be able to re-arrange how one's shop appears, rather than being stuck with the order in which items are listed.

        I've just re-arranged my shop front today, and Folksy.... well done, you did it!!! It's fab :)

        I don't think it should only be for plus seller - everyone who sells on Folksy, pays to list their items, and they should have the same benefits as plus sellers do. Just because we (plus sellers) choose to pay a one-off fee rather than pay as we go, doesn't give us the right to a better service x

        But only for Plus sellers surely? Why should those who haven't paid get this benefit?

        Please could we have an update at least!? It's been 16 months since we were told it was under review - surely a decision has been made by now!

        I have just relisted some of my old stock and have buried all of my new designs! It's crazy that we can't a least decide what is on the first page as this is effectively our shop window.

        Please can we have an update?! Thanks ♥

        I would really like to be able to rearrange the order of items in my shop especially now when I have a couple of items on offer

        I'm getting very frustrated with my jewellery appearing in the order it was listed. When I list new items, they can land up clashing with previously listed items. At the moment I'm trying to re-organise my sections to place more emphasis on the Sea dreams collection, which is largely blue, rather than my Summer fruits collection which has a lot of pinks. In theory I can do that, but actually there seems to be no way of saving the new order and as soon as I move away from that page, it goes back to the original order. Grrrr.

        By the way my other half is a computer programmer (more properly called a software engineer) and he thinks the lack of flexibility is astonishing. Come on Folksy, it ain't rocket science - and if your website designers think it is, they're not as good as they say they are!!!

        Under Review? April last year - How long can it possibly take!

        This need addressing now, simple features like 'search this shop' and the ability to re-organise your shop are a basic requirement, some of these folks on here have been asking for over a year and are still waiting - PLEASE help us out, most of us are small businesses who have chosen Folksy over other sites and some of us are wondering if we made the right choice. x

        I too am new to Folksy but I think the ability to be able to arrange items in my shop is a great idea.

      • DebbiDebbi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am very new to Folksy and I'm just finding out how things work but even I can see that being able to sort the order items are listed would be a massive help.

        This is a real fault in Folksy and frustrating because it's available in Etsy. It is impossible to keep sections of your shop together when you make something new unless you relist constantly after working out moves like a chess game!

        It would be really good to be able to re-arrange the listings in our shop, and I think it could also add to sales. I sell on etsy and I really think that being able to change things around to freshen things up has had a good impact on my sales with them - Come on Folksy give it a try!

      • aliali commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This should be a priority - it's already available on Etsy and is a major downside to Folksy.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You should know that I (and most likely many others) make far more listings on Etsy than here on Folksy purely due to this missing feature. I am just about to list a new load of items and am dreading trying to plan in which order I shall be putting them on. It is beyond frustrating for me and as a result I will no doubt end up giving up on it half way through as usual. This means that even though I prefer this site, Etsy will get the full benefit of hosting my shop, not Folksy. It's a shame that this has now become a point of major disappointment for so many. I have friends who will not even consider listing here because of this missing feature.

        WOW This has been 'under review' for a year now! WHY?! Thats just unacceptable. SORT IT OUT! You can see how many sellers think this is important. And it IS important. Make it a priority please Folksy - it cant be that hard surely?!!!

        I have a lot of items in my shop and love a 'search this shop' feature, I'm sure it would increase everyones views and sales.

      • clairehalsonclairehalson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is really important to me.... I need to be able to rearrange my shop. First impressions are so important. Its silly that people have a quick look and see one item made in 5 different colours.... I need to be able to move them about myself. It works for me on Etsy! Literally 5 minutes after I did this my shop had 100% more hits than before.
