We charge 6% + VAT sales commission on the selling price of all items, whether you are on the Basic Plan, or Folksy Plus.

Commission is not charged on postage.

All fees are charged in UK Pounds Sterling.


Bills are generated on the 1st of the month, in arrears (so you pay for your use of Folksy in the previous month) on any fees over £2. VAT is charged on the subtotal of your listing and selling fees.
