Suggested Features for Folksy...

WE NEED A FOLKSY APP!!!For both facebook and mobile devices!

We need a folksy app for mobile devices and for our facebook pages. To keep up with other selling sites we need to have similar options for potential customers. They are not going to buy from us if there is a simpler way to go through an etsy/ebay app and find things from their phones etc It is really falling behind not having this option, these days its strange there's not an app for it! Folksy should be a bigger name within the uk than other selling sites as it is uk based and this would help toward that! Ease of use is everything for customers, i think we need the app options to provide a simple way for customers to view our products

We need to be an equal marketplace to others and this would help make that so

    I would like to contact Folksy knitters and other craft makers but how do I do this?

    I very rarely see any updates to the Folksy platform, if ever. I know it's a smaller site than most... but items do get sold here, so money most be being made. Are there any useful developments going on at Folksy HQ? An APP is very much one that's needed. Better advertising of the Platform would be a really fruitful direction to go in, and generally tweaking the aesthetics of the website to ensure everything looks perfect for potential buyers. Folksy, I know you're comparatively small... but that doesn't mean you need to look small!!!

    Actually, the development of an app would benefit so many UK sellers, and encourage them to sell through a UK based platform instead of paying fees to overseas companies, that it should also be of interest to the government to support it. Maybe there is some kind of grant available? Or some patriotic members of the dragon's den!

    Also, I rely on app notifications to my phone and tablet to respond quickly to enquiries and orders.

    Absolutely! I mostly use etsy to sell because I find it so much easier to add and manage listings (not just because of the app) I also do most of my online shopping using apps on my tablet. I really want a UK based site to be my only outlet, but it needs to be easier!

    I just joined Folksy and am disappointed to say the least that there is no app. I manage most of my selling from my phone. Maybe need to rethink using this site.

    Absolutely! Folksy needs an app. This should be fairly simple yet stand out. Not only would a Folksy app on mobile & tablet be useful to buyers who are looking for something ‘special’ but it would be more than useful to sellers, who aren’t near their laptop to check for sales or customer queries. An app would be really useful to both sellers & buyers ‘on the move’ or for just a quick check.

    Definitely need to develop an app. Please can Folksy get the crowdfunding started?

  • Anne McArdle commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Folksy definitely need to develop an App sooner rather than later otherwise they will be left behind other handmade online selling organisations and potentially loose their own online shopkeepers. An app makes life so much easier! Folksy has been around a long time and need to keep up with trends. It's 2017 for goodness sake.

    I'd like to llink this shop to my Facebook page so people can buy from my page? Is this possible?

  • Andy Downs commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I have just joined Folksy as an addition to Etsy. I love the idea of an English shop for our crafts. Like others though, I am amazed that there is no App and see this as a major flaw.

    I have added three votes to try and lift its priority, but I'm concerned there has been no reply.

    Come on Folksy, how about giving us an update. Is an App being considered or not?

  • Donna Owen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I liked the idea that was suggested on the forums of crowdfunding an app. As folksy cannot afford it why don't we all chip in and get one made?
    It would extend our reach and as many people download the app store's suggested apps, it would introduce us to many people who've never heard of folksy.
    Let's do this!!!!
