  1. Easier way to re-arrange items in shop

    I would love if there was an easier way to rearrange photos/items in your shop.

    The current method is very laborious and time-consuming. (especially with over 200 listings!) Having to individually move these items up a list in the shopkeeping settings is just not working.

    I would love a user-friendly way of organising photos/items within collections. I envision being able to view images of items in the 'collections' in a grid format and then being able to swap and change which position the items will be shown in your shop.

  2. Shipping Date

    Could Folksy possibly include the date when we marked the item as shipped on past orders? Something like 'Shipped 3.8.15' would be sufficient. This would help with items that appear to be lost in the post.
    Thank you.

    Please can we have a feature to edit confirmation emails, for example so we can add links to a tailored survey

  5. Can we have different sections for art prints and original artwork

    In the art section of categories there is no distinction between prints and originals.

    The distinction is very important to some people who by art.

    Original art is sought out by some buyers. These kind of buyers may be put off buying from art Folksy if they are not able to filter the art prints out.

    Buyers may also want to only see prints and can't filter out originals.

    Separating the two is commonplace on sites where art is sold, would be nice for Folksy to follow suit to support the art sellers in the community. If enough people agree.

  6. WE NEED A FOLKSY APP!!!For both facebook and mobile devices!

    We need a folksy app for mobile devices and for our facebook pages. To keep up with other selling sites we need to have similar options for potential customers. They are not going to buy from us if there is a simpler way to go through an etsy/ebay app and find things from their phones etc It is really falling behind not having this option, these days its strange there's not an app for it! Folksy should be a bigger name within the uk than other selling sites as it is uk based and this would help toward that! Ease…

  8. Making landscape and portrait format images equal

    Having created my greetings card listings, I discover that portrait and landscape images are getting unequal treatment: both are being reduced to the same width, meaning that landscape format images are much smaller, making detail less visible than that on portrait format images. It would be nice to have them displayed at the same resolution as the portrait format images or, perhaps, to allow visitors to click on the images and have them displayed at the full resolution at which they were uploaded.

  9. CUSTOMER MADE PURCHASE alert badge near shop banner

    When beavering away in my shop all day I don't pay much attention to emails so it would be great to have an alert badge appear near the shopping basket or shop banner when a customer makes a purchase. Then I can attend to their order asap!

  10. 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.

  11. Image sizes

    When listing a new item why does it say "The maximum image size is 4MB"?!! After a frustrating day downsizing my pictures and Folksy rejecting my pages I learnt that image sizes had to be much less than that. This has been very time wasting and to be honest I was ready to give up and abandon my account had it not been for the fact that I had paid the £45 fee.

  12. Newbie day

    I think it would be really nice if Folksy were to have one day a year (or even one a month) where only items from sellers with say under 5-10 sales or even just those with with 0 sales, are shown on the website. It could be publicised as a special day and would give all the other hardworking crafters the opportunity to get some visibility on the site and make a potential sale. They usually lose out to all the additional visibility given to the Best Sellers... :o(

  13. 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!

  14. 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?

  15. Is it possible to have a toys main section

    Is it possible to have a main heading for toys as it's currently under homewares, for example I have put my car and pencil wraps under nursery and playroom but would they ever be found there?

  17. Please could we have a natural remedies section added to bath and beauty?

    I have been adding my natural remedies to the fragrance section as there is nowhere else to put them. It would be so much easier for potential customers to find my and other natural remedie makers items if we had a separate section for them.

  20. Make items appear in PayPal

    Currently Folksy items are not named in PayPal reports. There is usually a blank space. Ebay manages to tell paypal exactly what has been purchased/sold. Please make this work for Folksy too. Currently only way to see what item is is to click on it within PayPal. Time consuming when doing accounts
