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. Can dates be added to Holiday mode

    Please can you make it possible for Shop owners to put up the dates of when their shop will be closed and then re open ?
    Preferably underneath the shop banner in large and bold lettering for customers.

  2. 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.

  3. New links to facebook/ twitter/ blog etc. to open in a new window/ tab

    The new links to our individual facebook and other social media profiles are great - thank you. But could they please open in a new window or a new tab as it takes the viewer right out of Folksy and away from the shop where we want them to stay! It's great for people to be able look into us and our work before buying but it would be good if they remained on site as well. Thanks.

  4. 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.

  6. Made to order......

    Hi, I don't know if I am the only seller this effects but most of my items are made to order. Is it possible that under date made input area we could have a drop down for not yet made or made to order please.

    At the moment I stress as much as I can in my listing text and upon first contact with my customers that their items will be made once I have received their orders but would love to have the 'date made' input field accurate for my way of working.

    Many Thanks

  7. Show that you've reduced a price

    It would be good if you could show a price reduction when you have a sale i.e. was £15 now £10 with the £15 crossed through so the buyers can see that you have actually reduced it as opposed to just saying that you have.

  8. Encourage communication before leaving negative feedback

    Could there a note beside the feedback box suggesting buyers contact the seller before leaving negative feedback? It seems unfair to have negative feedback on your record for a situation that you then fixed for them, eg. resent an item that never arrived.

    We’re going to be reviewing the way that feedback works in future. When we do, we’ll take this situation into consideration so that positive outcomes are more accurately reflected on the site.

  9. Add a picture to meet the maker

    Could we have the ability to add an image to our meet the maker page - perhaps a picture of our workrooms, us creating our products, craft fair display of products etc - think it would really add something to those pages.

  10. I would like to see different lists for 'just listed' (new items) and 're listed' (re listed or expired items)

    People will bulk re list because they can on the folksy plus plan, if the public could see only new items 'just listed' it would be fairer for the sellers who a) don't list very much b) don't bulk re list on principal and give a more realistic view of the site to purchasers.

    In this way constantly seeing the same things over and over could be avoided which would make the Folksy home page much more interesting.

  11. Woodturning and Crochet

    Hi,

    My husband has a woodturning site, but has to sprea all his items around.Please can you at least ass a "WOOD" items category.

    I sell crochet items and am totally frustrated that there is a "KNITTING" category which I have to put my items in and not a "CROCHET" category.

    Please can you add these categories as there are a lot of us that are in need of them and would help us promote our items to the right people.

    Thanks

  12. As sellers do we have to show publicly the number of items we have sold (or not?!)

    I don't like this feature, particularly as I'm new to Folksy and haven't sold anything yet :/. I would rather the public not know how many items I've sold, is there a way of keeping this information private, is the number of items sold really relevant to buyers anyway?

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. Ability to de-activate item straight from Item listing

    I list some of my items on more than one site - if I sell on another site I have to spend quite a long time scrolling through my 190 or so listings to find the item I want to de-activate. I'd love to be able to make changes straight from the item listing by way of a Deactivate button or even through the current Edit button by reducing stock to zero. Thanks!

  16. 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

  17. 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?

  18. 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.

  19. Make it more obvious that sellers should fill in their Profile (Meet the maker info)

    Many new shops don't have the 'meet the maker' info filled in. I looked for mine just now and it took me ages to find it - it's in My Profile way down on my dashboard menu. And it is not at all obvious that the info you enter here is displayed to vistors when they click your name at the top of your shop.

    Suggest that this is moved into the 'Shop Settings' page, and an explanation of how it is used to be added. Prompt people to say how long they have been crafting for, what techniques they…

  20. 'All' should not be a subcategory

    I have just noticed that when listing an item, 'All' is a subcategory option. As a buyer, if I select 'All' within a category, I expect to see just that - all the items within the category, not just those that have been added to a subcategory called 'All'.

    Please can you sort this out, as the way things stand at the moment I will have to list everything twice to stand half a chance of being found by buyers - once under the correct category (i.e. jewellery - earrings - glass) and once under 'All' (jewellery - earrings -…
