Choosing a shop name and username

Usernames

Your username (the one you use to log in) is very important and you will not be able to change it, so please choose it carefully.

Your username forms part of your shop URL (web address). So for example, if your username was FantasticThings, your shop address would be FantasticThings.folksy.com or www.folksy.com/shops/FantasticThings. So it’s worth choosing a username that is similar to your shop name.

Usernames cannot be changed so if you want a new username or shop address (URL) you would need to create a new account. Please note that data can not be transferred between accounts

Shop names

Your shop name can be anything you want provided that:

  • It is not already in use by another seller on Folksy
  • It does not infringe any trademarks or registered businesses

It’s a good idea to pick something which is short, memorable and that describes you well.

You can change your shop name at any time in Your shop > Edit appearance and settings.
