It would be incredibly helpful to me, especially for my clothing range, to have an option to list different sizes and prices of the same design (all in one listing). perhaps with a drop down menu for customers to select their size. For example, if I list a dress which is £28 upto 18 months but £35 for larger sizes, i have to list the item for the cheaper price to entice customers, but then risk losing them when they find out it costs more for larger sizes. Perhaps have a 'From' price to make it clearer?
At the moment can be done only in the description of the item and customers forget to specify which needs further communication with them and slows the postage time.
Eg 10x5" print = £xxx, 7x5" = £xxx
All of the same image/product - just different price for each size option. Saves having to list each photo at each size (which takes ages!)
Can we please have drop down menus for colour and size, so that we don't have to ask the customer to let us know which colour / size they want. Or list each colour separately which is what I have to do at the moment as customers often don't let you know which colour they want.
When we sell a belt or T shirt we have to then e-mail the customer and hope they get back to us with a size. Sometimes they don't and we just have to refund.
I've always assumed Folksy doesn't have a sizes option to avoid people listing things in bulk quantities. With belts we make the belt and adjust it before sending. With T shirts we print once ordered but it's impossible to send it out without a size and I really don't want to have to list the same thing 4 times.
We’re looking at possible ways introduce variations on Folksy. If you would still like to use listing variations, please go to this forum post ASAP and let us know what you need:
I have just started to sell on here and Etsy and I'm afraid without this feature I will be listing far more on Etsy than Folksy, which is a great shame.
I've just come back to Folksy after a few months off as this was one of my frustrations, but alas it's still not been added :( I will stick it out for a while but it is really time consuming and untidy adding a listing for every size.
I have just started using Folksy and list many items that require variations, I would love to support a smaller market place such as Folksy but find it very off putting that something like variations is not available :/
I have just come back to Folksy after a break and am dismayed to see I cannot list item variations. It would make mine and am sure other sellers' lives on the Folksy platform so much easier!

People who make Folksy - We need variations!
Please listen to your customers, as we have to listen to our customers and tweak where necessary.
If variations were offered I would list all my handmade products at once.
As per everybody else.
What is easy to set up on other platforms either means setting up multiple products on Folksy (high maintenance + additional cost if not on the Folksy Plus plan) or not bothering with putting it onto Folksy (a massive shame).

I am now making lamps and would like to offer with or without shade prices.
But these doesn't seem possible at the moment.

being unable to list one item with variations really limits what I offer for sale... a drop down menu with options would be so useful! please please pretty please, folksy... any chance you could make this happen?!
I have the same print in different colours. Variations would be nice.
This would be so very useful to have. Because of the lack of variations there are item options I just don't offer for sale on Folksy, which is such a shame.
For a toiletry seller no variations is a big issue. I sell many things that have the same base but different essential oils. Asking customers to leave a note in orders has limited success. It has got to the point if there are too many variations I don't even bother to list here.

I would love to see listing variations. It would be really useful for my ribbons as I could list different lengths with prices.
It would be a great feature to have, and make listings a lot easier for Sellers.
Miranda Davey commented
I would love this feature.
I cover buttons in various sizes and colours
I’m new to Folksy will I have to list all variations separately?
I could really do with this as I am having to list all sizes as separate listings which makes it confusing for customers especially as one of my items was featured in a gift guide by folksy but the size the customer wanted was larger than the featured item and consequently more expensive.
Come on Folksy your sellers are really in need of a variations/options feature on listings!!
Lorraine Burt commented
Variations would be so helpful, even just a couple of variations would be great!
Natalie Randall commented
This would be sooooo helpful! It would also make my page look way neater! Is this going to happen!?
I just joined and was highly surprised not to have this essential functionality? I sell Clothing and typically in 5 different sizes. Is this going to be integrated??
Tim Hogan commented
Absolutely essential to just one of my listings.
Just now I have 18 variations of one certain product, but I can turn this into a hundred if i like. Imagine listing the same product 100 times! Or 18 times as it stands right now.
C'mon Folksy, give us VARIATIONS !
I think this feature is essential. The items I sell are made to order to fit whatever eReader or tablet a customer has. That the customer has to message me with the relevant information doesn't make for a great buying experience. On other sites - including my own website - the customer can simply select their device from a dropdown menu and be done with it.
