  1. Notification against Feedback option

    Would it be possible to have a notification against the feedback option under the Activity section on the dashboard showing when someone left a feedback comment or alternatively sending an email as some other website do.Thanks x

  2. "Search this shop" feature - please!!

    I have lots of items in my shop, even I have trouble finding a particular item!

    My customers are now emailing me and asking "do you have any Alice in Wonderland things left" etc. Then I have to trawl through my shop and send them the links as they cannot be bothered to scroll through my whole shop looking for them.

    I know that this loses me sales - and Folksy money. It's madness, and a very basic requirement.

    PLEASE look into this as a matter of importance - Etsy is looking more attractive by the second!

  3. Sold items on expired listings list!

    Some of my listing have started to expire, whilst browsing my expired items to decide which to relist, I noticed that my sold items were also coming up on my expired list. This caused some confusion - in fact I relisted an item that had already sold!

    The only way I could prevent them from ending up on my expired list and causing confusion between what I had available to relist, and what had already sold. was to delete my sold items. Now my 'view sold item' link on my shop shows no items at all.

    Surely the sold items…

  4. The ability to list one item in more than one category

    I sell jewellery and many of my items could be listed equally into the 'regular' jewellery category or the wedding jewellery category. It would be fantastic if we could have the option to list an item in two categories at the same time, without having to list one item twice - which is what I am having to do, so I don't miss any prospective customers. I am concerned that it appears I have two exactly the same items available, when I only have one, but in two categories. Would this change be possible?

  5. 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?

  6. Option for Gift Receipt

    I'd like the option to be able to print a gift receipt. A customer asked me to send their purchase direct to their friend as a gift, and wanted me to include a gift receipt without the price.
    This isn't possible at present and it seems to me to be something that we should be able to do. It is common practice elsewhere and a lot of people buy things as gifts.

  7. Ability To Convert UK Currency USA Currency

    If you would have some kind of currency converter on the Folksy site; would be helpful to anyone that doesn't know, or understand, your Country's currency.

  8. 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…

  9. Is it fair for pro sellers to constantly list their items so they are in top 40?

    Is it fair for pro sellers to constantly list their existing items in their shop so they get seen when people come to folksy. I have noticed a lot of jewellery its same sellers who are constantly on front pages when i log into jewellery (as i sell jewellery) so they must constantly relist.

    This is not fair in my opinion as they then appear in the top 40 each day and general public look at best sellers and go to those shops so they get an unfair advantage over others who are not constantly on computer putting in their…

  10. 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!

  11. 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

  12. 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…

  13. Please can we have the option of editing an item before relisting it.

    At the moment, the only option is to list, then quickly edit or mark as 'out of stock' to edit.I think this option means that your item temporarily appearing in the recently listed category (possibly on front page too)-I'm too busy quickly editing to find this out for sure!!
    Not good if your relist needs updating photo's/prices/spelling mistakes.

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. Can we have the option of 'free postage' if collected in person.

    Lots of my friends want to buy my items but don't want to pay postage as they can collect. Can there be an option for free postage if the buyer can collect. That way I can sell all my items through Folksy.

  17. '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!

    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?

  19. 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!

  20. Introducing Subsections in a shop

    It would seem sensible to have the ability to add subsections to a shop i.e. if you clicked on one of the sections on the LHS a drop down list would appear giving the potential purchaser the opportunity to further narrow their choice.
    e.g. I sell a number of different photo related items such as greetings cards, fine art prints, iphone cases, mugs etc which are listed as Sections. But it would be very useful if they could be further subdivided into Subsections such as Landscape, Still life, Animals, Abstract etc
