Suggested Features for Folksy...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. The ability to use CSV files for bulk uploads of new inventory.

    Using a CSV file with all your data under sub headings allows you to upload all of your inventory in one upload rather than having to list all items individually and would save a ridiculous amount of time.

          It would be useful if we could create a free postage code, rather than a discount code. Or even just a code that we could set the value of - a little bit like a gift voucher redeemed on Purchases.
          That way we could introduce new buyers to our shops with a free postage offer - or it could be given or used for people in our local area.

          • IT would be useful if we could have a download to save of all of our listings in our shops.

            I would find it very useful if i could take a download of all of the listings in my shop. Would this be possible please?

              • Environmental Statement

                I was wondering if there were any plans to have an environmental policy statement/section for shops? I would be keen to have this as a link in the top section of my shop, similar to the links for ‘Buying from me’ and ‘Privacy policy’.

                At the moment I’m listing some of my environmental standards in my ‘About’ section but as information that’s put there is freeform and individual to each seller, as a buyer I wouldn’t necessarily know to look there to get this kind of information. A brand’s environmental standards are certainly something that affect my purchase decisions and…

                • productos hechos a mano

                  considero que es una plataforma abierta al intercambio comercial y seria importante abrir la opcion a recibir productos artesanales de otras partes del mundo ..donde las redes no llegan y se puede impulsar el intercambio comercial .. o bien tener algun agente en reino unido que canalice esta artesania ..

                  • Wedding Gifts

                    I mainly supply personalised gifts, mainly to the wedding market. Im so surprised you do not have a wedding gifts category. You have a thank you gifts for bridesmaids etc. Is there any chance of adding a new category of wedding gifts or even personalised gifts or both. Thank you Fiddlestick Crafts

                    • Billing information split

                      I have a plus account and re list some items every day. When I get my bill there are hundreds of entries to go through to check it, particularly when my bill has rolled over 2 or 3 months, because orders are mixed in with the listings. If possible could the bill have 2 sections...one showing listing fees, and a separate section listing orders?

                      • Free Shipping option if buyer lives in your local area/vicinity

                        Could we have a Free Shipping option (only available to buyers who live in your immediate local area/vicinity?). You can deliver it in person @ the buyer's house once payment is received.

                        This would be better than buyer coming to your house.

                        • close my account

                          why won't folksy let me close my account. I have paid all my fees, I have emailed them to ask why when I go to click "close my account" on the dashboard, it won't let me, it says I owe money... I DO NOT my balance to folksy Is zero. I get no reply when I email them... very annoying and disappointing as I want to close the shop. It isn´t working for me.

                            If I wanted to buy local to where I live is there a way of searching for local producers or is it a option you could add?

                            • Password change suggestion

                              Could Folksy provide a "confirm new password" or a "show " icon when a new password is made?
                              It's too easy to make a new word, misspell it, not be able to check it then drive yourself crazy retyping it.
                              I know there's a link for a forgotten password; that's fine if you also remember you've changed you email details!

                                Could be have a category for pens under office? The pens used for artwork are not the same and people looking for a pen to buy as a gift are more likely to look under office. Artists will look for special pens used to create art under art.

                                  I had an enquiry from a buyer through Folksy las week wanting to know if I could supply an item that she thought was the perfect item in time for an anniversary gift. I replied immediately. And was surprised that someone so keen did not come back so I emailed another 2 times .....apologising in case she had changed her mind and wondering if my reply had arrived.
                                  She replied yesterday saying that she had only just seen my reply in her spam folder........she thought I had not replied and had bought elsewhere.

                                  • Search facility within listings

                                    Hello, I have brought this up before, but it was a good while back. I really think a search facility is needed when we are managing our listings.

                                    I currently have three pages of listings, and although archaic it is possible to use CTRL &F to try to search, but it isn't possible from a mobile.

                                    I have closed my shop previously due to the unmanageable dashboard/clumsy workarounds, and hoped it had been resolved, especially as a decent Stats system had been recently given a facelift.

                                    Also the option to delete/hide a listing when viewing the item would be very…

                                    • A category for leathercrafts

                                      A category for Leather, leather crafts, tools etc.

                                      As this is becoming a very popular craft, but there is no real provision within the categories.

                                      • Crowdfunding some apps

                                        As we've all been told over and over folksy can't afford to fund the making of apps for smartphones, so why don't we crowdfund (is that a word?) them instead. Most of us know just how important apps are for sellers and shoppers, so we should put our money where our mouth is and chip in part of the cost.
                                        I'm not saying we should pay for it all but maybe if we could come up with part of the money Folksy could come up with the rest??
                                        This really is something we need to get the folksy brand out…

                                        • Collection Descriptions

                                          It would be great if there could be a format where we could add a description at the top of each Collection page.
