Suggested Features

Please add any suggestions for site features here. There’s no guarantee we will be able to implement your idea, but we welcome your thoughts!

  1. Easier editing of prices

    Can we please have the price of each item on the 'manage listings' display - so we can alter the price as well as the stock level easily. At the moment we have to edit each item which is much more time consuming - as well as it increasing our views ! (why do views have to go up when we view our own items ???)
    It would be EXTREMELY helpful to be able to edit the price of an item as quickly and easily as we can edit the stock level- please add it to the manage lisntings editable…

  2. Different delivery options for individual listings

    It would be really useful if for each listing customers could choose between different postage options. For example, guaranteed, first class or second class. Not everyone needs their orders immediately, so customers can save money on delivery costs.

  3. Adjustable thumbnail images

    It's not always possible to crop an image to be square. So it would be great if you could allow us to move/resize the thumbnail, so that if the item is not exactly in the centre of your image or it's not possible to make the image square, you can adjust the thumbnail so that it doesn't look badly cropped and messy.
    Currently I'm having to constantly re-crop my image to try and make sure the thumbnail is centered which is very fiddly. Shop images don't need to be square so seems weird the thumbnail is a forced, un-customisable crop…

  4. Shop collection photos in square format

    Whilst we all strive to achieve better photos why is it that throughout Folksy "square" format photos work best whilst those associated with our shop collections are in a rectangular format and therefore often have detail cropped from them. Please could these be changed to square format so that the shop front doesn't look careless and sloppy!

  5. Folksy to run an ad, print, tv campaign

    Hi there,
    Although not a direct feature for folksy users, it would improve folksy life! I've seen etsy advertised online, over the radio, on tv, in magazines, blogs etc. I would love to see Folksy make a commitment to advertising themselves, in turn helping sellers to reach more audiences.

  6. Set my own processing times for made-to-order items

    21 days is not enough time for me to process some made-to-order items so I use other sites to offer these "high end" products to my customers. I'd like to set my own timescales on Folksy please.

  8. Gift vouchers

    I would love to be able to give and receive Folksy gift vouchers. I hope that is something that you can consider in the future.

  9. Thumbnails link to actual items?

    I've found it frustrating when shopping that I'll see something interesting on the front page, or as a thumbnail for a category, and then when I click on it it takes me to a page of related listings but not the one in the image (unless I scroll through a couple of pages - sometimes it's not there at all!)

    Is there a way to make sure that if an item is used as a thumbnail/tease image that it actually appears in the page that that click leads you to?

  10. Unavailable on holiday is not the same as out of stock

    When I was on holiday I received this message
    "We have been looking for some time and saw your kingfisher suncatcher but disappointed to see it is unavailble. Will you be making anymore as we would like 2 please"

    I wrote back to say that it was unavailable as i was on holiday not because i hadn't got one.

    It struck me that a lot of customers would simply walk away and not bother if they saw that message. Fortunately i responded and in a couple of weeks will be selling 2 on here.

    The problem arises because when in…

  11. Search function in my listings

    It would be great to be able to search my own listings, since it can be quite hare to find an item that I need to remove if it has been sold elsewhere or to copy it for a new similar listing.
    This could also be solved by giving us a 'copy' and a 'hide' button on the item page next to the 'edit' button.
    Would make my life that bit easier :o)

  13. Enable buyers to instantly download digital purchases. I.e. for PDF sewing & knitting patterns

    I sell e-patterns and would like to be able to upload them to each listing so a buyer can instantly download it once purchased to save me having to email it for every sale.
    A category for PDF downloads would be great, its vastly becomming the preferred option for buyers of sewing patterns and other websites are offering this. It could cover a wide range of tutorials such as crafts, arts and digital supplies.

  14. Hyperlinks

    Please could we have the ability to post hyperlinks to other listings in our descriptive text. For example - blue cushion cover . I have a matching red one which makes up a pair (hyperlink to that listing ). I think this would be a really useful additional tool to help promote our items.

  15. Shop Stats

    Is it possible to make the shop or item views clearer, something along the lines of Etsy?? With the current Folksy system I find it difficult to tell how many views I've had per item per day. I have set up Google analytics but do not find that particularly helpful, not very user friendly nor intuitive. Cheers.

  16. Shopkeeping ....

    Please can any items that have NOT been catagorised please appear at the top of the page and not at the bottom when listing a new item or anywhere when listing a copied listing!
    When you have a large shop it is extremely time consuming to sort through it.

  17. Download your shop orders to help with accounts

    I'd like to be able to download a csv file of my sales so that I can add them into my accounts package or spreadsheets in one go, rather than having to do it all manually.

    Thank you please

  18. Collections Images

    With the all new shop face (LOVE LOVE LOVE it by the way!!) please can we have the ability to upload collection images.

    I've set my shop (currently) with 18 collections and all of my items are in at least 2 of them. I've just tried to make it so each category has a different style and colour of glass work so it show a wide selection of the pieces I make so it looks inviting. When listing a new item it puts it in at the top of the list and once I've gone into my shopkeeping page and…

  19. would be great if I could create my own wish list that family and friends could access.

    To be able to save favourite items into a wish list that others can view and buy from would be great.
