Replace top sellers with last sold items
The top sellers are always the same as slanted towards value rather than actual number of sale.ps. This is unfair for those of us selling cheaper items as never stand a chance. Plus customers may think other shops are not worth looking at.
To be fairer to all could top sellers be scrapped after all it is always the same shops and latest items sold put in instead. Updates when an item is sold. This would then be changing all the time and be far more interesting.

Totally agree, it would be much fairer to rotate sellers. There's a lot of sellers who just don't get seen & as a consequence don't sell as much. So this does need to be looked at urgently to improve chances of sales for all sellers.
In turn this should increase revenue to Folksy in terms of commissions.
This would be a great idea
Nikki Davies commented
A much fairer measurement for sellers, and more interesting, varied and representative of the Folksy experience for potential customers
Pat Simon commented
A great idea! It will help many more sellers.
Loz Spacey commented
Important as hard to be seen if you only get a few sales
Chris Stone commented
This has to be worth a try
Sounds like a great idea, can't vote as I've run out of votes?! Don't know how or when they give you more votes, but it's a great idea
Elizabeth Parker commented
All sellers should be treated equally & fairly
Anja Stafford commented
Top sellers shouldn't be given the spotlight all the time. It just encourages some to make similar items which ruins the overall look of Folksy and risk copycats flooding the website.
This is a much more comprehensive method of showing what sells and gives the genuine handmade items a fair go
Totally unfair. All sellers should be equal in their importance.

Yes it looks like no other shops sell anything, as it’s the same sellers all the time. Not a good look.
Helen Fenton commented
I'm from chip n Pin Crafts, I totally agree, seems unfair for bigger items and shops to be there all the time and doesn't give the smaller shops a chance.

I think it's a really good idea, really valid reasons and gives a much fairer view of what people are buying and what's on offer than best sellers based on value alone. It would also help sellers to see what type of things people are buying.

2nd. attempt I've finally voted !; great idea, & makes it fairer for everyone.
Gill Wootton commented
If I sold my whole shop in one go I still would not make the list.
Angela Harpham commented
Would make it a little fairer as you say.
Alison Jane commented
Great idea! It's always the same shops at the top and doesn't show the quirky nature of Folksy items that are selling.
