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?
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:
Agree, it would be very useful as it would save a lot of time in creating individual listings for everything, which I cannot do, because I do not have enough Harris Tweed to make 80+ versions of all the items! Everything is made to order. I like to be able to offer customers a wide choice but no variations is holding me back. Also, more than one variation type of variation would be helpful, e.g. exterior fabric, lining, zip colour...

Listing variations would be a very useful addition for us. We offer different colour and size options on the same items and it is very time consuming to list these individually.

i am looking for this option also in the listing so i can list different size items will this be added soon ? as if i was to list all i would have 20 listing for the same item but different sizes and this would just become to out of control to sort supplies and manage them
With our products we have variations in colour for designs. For example, we sell Banners (for greeting cards) for lots of occasions and most have 4-5 colour variations, and with our 'Happy Birthday' Banners, about 9!
We also have Backing card and paper where it would be handy to list one product and give the customer a choice of card or paper.
This may complicate things as the card would be slightly dearer (but we are able to do this on other sites)
Want a third variation that would help our business? With our products we offer a discount for buying more, so would like qty variations with different prices. eg buy one pack for £x but get 2 or more for £y or just the ability to have a select with the different options

I would like to be able to list my miniature flowers with artisan vase/less expensive vase/loose at different prices to suit more customers.
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!!
