Folksy Shop App for Facebook Page & smartphones?
Hi there, I was wondering if we were any closer to having a Folksy Tab on our Facebook Pages?
I was gutted when that disappeared? And have you got a APP for Iphones in the offing too?
Yours Chloe @ Hatastic!
The easiest way to integrate your Folksy shop and your Facebook page is to create a catalogue on Facebook. To make this easier, we have added a new ‘data feed page’ option. Just add .rss to your whole shop URL (eg https://folksy.com/shops/claregetscrafty.rss) and then follow the instructions here https://www.facebook.com/business/help/384041892421495?id=725943027795860
That should enable you to create a catalogue from your Folksy shop that updates automatically when you add a new listing or something sells out.
We are also creating an API for Folksy listings which will allow us to launch an app for sellers. Sellers would then be able to use this on their mobile devices and tablets to list and manage their Folksy orders on Folksy. At this stage the app will be for sellers rather than customers, but all the development work we are doing on Folksy is now in an app-friendly format so that it can be used by app technology in the future.

Would love to have an app and a tab on my facebook page
would really like to have a folksy tab on my fb page
Something similar to the 'Etsy mini' app would be so useful for me, but I do think an iphone app is much more important, as more and more buyers are using their phones to make purchases.
i would love to add my shop to my blog call nannycheryl@folksy. please
A Folksy app/shop link on Facebook would be great :)
Yes please! I'd like to put a link on my blog too :)
I agree that an Folksy App would be incredibly useful since I usually have to wait until I can get onto a PC to browse or order items.

It would be great to have the Folksy tab back on FB. I'd love a FB shop presence but would prefer to keep all my stock in one place and like it here.
