  1. Bulk update prices

    If you wish to update all the prices in your shop it takes an age to go into each one individually. It would be wonderful if we could do a bulk update of prices in a way similar to the shipping prices. I'm putting off doing this as it's such a pain!

  2. 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

  3. Folksy Shop App for Facebook Page & smartphones?

    Hi there, I was wondering if we were any closer to having a Folksy Tab on our Facebook Pages?
    I was gutted when that disappeared? And have you got a APP for Iphones in the offing too?
    Yours Chloe @ Hatastic!

    The easiest way to integrate your Folksy shop and your Facebook page is to create a catalogue on Facebook. To make this easier, we have added a new ‘data feed page’ option. Just add .rss to your whole shop URL (eg https://folksy.com/shops/claregetscrafty.rss) and then follow the instructions here https://www.facebook.com/business/help/384041892421495?id=725943027795860

    That should enable you to create a catalogue from your Folksy shop that updates automatically when you add a new listing or something sells out.

    We are also creating an API for Folksy listings which will allow us to launch an app for sellers. Sellers would then be able to use this on their mobile devices and tablets to list and manage their Folksy orders on Folksy. At this stage the app will be for sellers rather than customers, but all the development work we are doing on Folksy is now in an app-friendly format so that it can be…

  4. 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?

  5. Feedback left v Feedback %

    Currently feedback is shown as the amount of feedback and a percentage. When the amount of feedback doesn't match the amount of sales, it does rather suggest that people weren't happy but declined to leave negative or neutral feedback.
    So I suggest that the box should show Items Sold and feedback % only. Eg:
    Items sold: 100
    Feedback: 100% positive
    Though still make it clickable so people can go and see what feedback has been left.

  6. 'Copy Listing' directly from listing page

    It would save loads of time if we could 'copy' an image the same way we can 'edit' an image directly from the items page within our shops. It's a faff to find the listing in the dashboard lists and select copy from there - takes ages!

  7. Search for producers by location

    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?

  8. 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!

  9. Offer buyers a choice of 1st or 2nd class postage

    With Royal Mail putting up the price of stamps again (grr!) it would be good to be able to offer a choice of cheaper or faster postage depending on the buyer's needs.

    This is a nice idea. The full range of postage options (1st class, 2nd class, signed-for, recorded delivery, personal collection, etc) might be a little tricky to design for though, not to mention more complicated for buyers.

    We’ll have a think though and will consider what might work best.

    Many thanks,

  10. The ability for sellers to purchase search ads to help promote their products.

    Sellers would pay £3/£5/£10 etc depending how many impressions they would like to make. The more you pay the more impressions you get. Could have a 'sponsored' section which would list those products in preferential top position on page.

  11. Please, could we have a 'Save as Draft' option?

    I'm currently setting up a new Folksy shop and have tried to put several listings as Drafts ready to list them when I'm ready. When you preview a listing your only options are to 'make changes' or 'list item'. If you just abandon it and click back to your dashboard it saves it as a draft. That's fine, it works but it seems a bit hit and miss. Plus you then need to navigate through 'manage listings', find 'Draft items' to start another.

  12. 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.

  13. Text messages sent when you sell something

    Text messages sent to your phone when you sell an item or get a message on folksy, this would improve speed of sales, and also if you buy something you could then get gentle text reminders if you do not pay / leave feedback within reasonable time. This could be a feature CHOSEN by the folksy sellers as some sellers may not want this features.

  15. Collections Menu at the side on product pages

    It would be really great if there could be a side menu of our collections when customers click on individual product pages. It would make navigation much easier for them, as they could go back into the collection they were in to look at more products, or switch categories. It saves them time when ordering multiple items, and makes our stores much more user friendly.

  16. Membership only by Approval

    I have written to the Folksy operators to suggest that membership of Folksy should be "juried" or, perhaps a more appropriate term, "following approval". Folksy has a clear and serious problem dealing with the removal of unsuitable shops, products and applicants from the listings. This is primarily due to the easy, more-or-less-instant application process that is currently used.

    Applications should include not only the person's UK address details but also a general description of the goods to be sold, along with actual images of a few products. It does mean that Folksy staff would have to manually check and approve…

  17. Shopkeeping

    Please please can we have the Shopkeeping page on separate pages (like the listings page). I have over 900 items and my ipad crashes when I try to load the page to move my newest listings to the top. Alternatively why on earth aren't the newest items automatically shown first anyway!!

  18. Misleading "Search" button

    Last year a shop which wanted to sell my items decided not to do so because they couldn't find my shop on Folksy. They presumably thought that my business card could not be trusted and therefore neither could I!

    It appears that this is because the search box does not make it clear that you can change it from searching for items to searching for shops.

    I doubt if I am alone in this experience and of all the websites I use Folksy has the least user-friendly search box.

    My experience of human nature is that very few people persevere…

  19. streamline the relisting

    Stream-line the relisting process

    Currently, to relist your items you have to resort the items by the date, then click on all of the items, then relist, then wait for the next page to load - to then click confirm relist and then finally, it is relisted. Then you have to do the same thing over and over.

    Please can we stream line the process so we dont have to click, I would love if the confirm page could be removed or if there was a "Relist all" option so we dont have to go page by page to relist.

  20. Autocorrect feature in the search bar

    Hello Folksy
    I was having trouble looking for an item because I kept misspelling it, so my search was coming up with 0 results every time.

    I ended up googling the word in the end but most search bars correct you or make a suggestion such as ''Did you mean...'' I was wondering if we could have this as a feature in our search bar?
