  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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!

  5. Stock identification numbers

    It would be useful for us to be able to give each item we list an individual stock number when listing an item so we can easily identify which item has been sold.
    For instance our seaweed themed decorations are all slightly different but very similar to look at on a photo online. I label each item here before it goes into stock but when one is sold on Folksy i have to go by the pictures to know which particular one has been ordered. Having a stock number would tell me instantly which item to go to.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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?

  10. A channel to reply to enquiries through Folksy rather than through own email. I had an enquiry from a buyer through Folksy las week w

    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.
    One, this makes me look like I…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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!!

  16. Larger area for description & bulk upload photos

    When listing a product can the description area be bigger so I can see all I am writing and can I upload all my 5 photos at once instead of one at a time.

    I have just joined and can add products twice as fast on my own website and three times on E*sy and Eb*y. I love the idea of a British craft site but am dissapointed by the backend set up.

    I dont really expect to get some interest in my Folksy site untill I have at least 50 products listed but at this rate it will be…

  17. 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…

  18. May I suggest that when listing a newly crafted Item,that the Photo upload part be after the Title ,as it helps to describe if your photo is

    Place photo upload part of listing, up near the top of the page,as when describing an item it helps to see the photo as well as the real thing.

  19. sold items - multiple items not showing.

    Would it be possible to show multiples of items sold please - at the moment if lots of people buy the same item, only the latest sale shows. Therefore it looks like you only ever sell one of each type of item.

  20. 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.
