  1. 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…

  2. A new category for Sale items

    Although there is now a category for Folksy Sale, this is chosen by Folksy. I think particularly at this time of year, sellers are missing the opportunity to clear back items and put some fresh new stock in their shops. If each defined area, e.g. Jewellery, home, etc. also had a Sale section, I think this would be helpful.

  3. Is there a plan to have a search function within the seller dashboard?

    my shop is getting bigger and I'm struggling to find outdated tags to update or items I need to copy to create new ones (the thumbnails are too small too) so wondered if there is a plan by folksy designers to add a search function to the backend of our shops to make navigating around listings easier and quicker?
    it could pick up the titles and tags only and I'd be super happy.!

  4. 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…

  5. photo upload

  6. Keep sold items visible in shop but mark as ‘sold’

    I make repeats of my birds and when they sell out and therefore disappear from my shop, customers get irritated because they look for an item and can’t find it. They don’t see the ‘sold items’ link. If the products were still visible in my shop but marked ‘sold out’ at least they can see all the details, price, size etc, and that is was available but now sold. Hope this makes sense 😃

  7. build platform so we can buy stamps direct from Royal Mail and print out ourselves

    I used to use Etsy (by the way i much prefer Folksy) but one thing they had which made it a lot easier for sellers is that I could buy Royal Mail stamps direct them from them and then print my own label and attach them to envelopes with weight, QR codes, addresses etc. I know it might take quite a lot of effort on your part but really I think it's worth it.

  8. How about a basket for each shop?

    I understand the 'continue shopping' thing was removed (although I don't agree with the reasons), but I feel it should be included as an in-shop feature. When I buy supplies from a Folksy shop and want to add more items, hitting the 'back' button to do so is not intuitive. It feels, as a user, that I might lose my existing items. I still persevere, and it works but it's off-putting from a general user perspective.

  9. Please add the ability to filter by location of item.

    I would like to be able to get things made by artisans local to the area, not only for purposes of shipping cost/time, but also as a way to discover nearby businesses or businesses in areas I will be traveling in. Additionally, as some items are custom made, knowing that the seller is local gives the opportunity to do fittings or to see items in person.

  10. Change the pin icon and categories shown in our shops

    The pin in our shops under the 'designed by' takes people out of our shops after we have worked hard to get them there.

    It would make more sense if the links took them to other items in the same category IN our shops rather than similar items in other peoples shops.

  11. 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

  13. 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.

  15. Text messages sent when you sell something

    Text messages sent to your phone when you sell an item or get a message on folksy, this would improve speed of sales, and also if you buy something you could then get gentle text reminders if you do not pay / leave feedback within reasonable time. This could be a feature CHOSEN by the folksy sellers as some sellers may not want this features.

  16. 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.

  17. Pet Categories

    Please could we have a separate category for pets. At the moment it is combined with the garden, as "garden & pets". As i like to make all different types of pet clothes (such as scarfs etc etc) it would be much more helpful for me & customers. At the moment the only option is to put most items in the "all other stuff" subdivision...... which is not much fun or descriptive. Thank you for looking at this.

  19. 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.

  20. Add a Phone Number field to sales area for Buyers

    Just a thought after the recent buyer problems.
    I think you should make the buyer leave a phone number, that way any problem could be resolved quite quickly over the phone.
    (It should be stated that the number would not be used for any other purpose)
