  1. Pencils & Pens Sub-Category in Stationery Category

    I sell HB pencils, but there isn't a pencils category. My choices are Homeware > Office > Everything Else, or to hash it and do Cards & Stationery > Stationery & Bookmarks and just pick one so that people actually looking for stationery can find them.

    I feel like there should be a pencils and pens/writing implements category in Stationery. It's hard to predict what people are looking up when they're browsing categories (as opposed to searching 'pencil'). There are so many types of stationery as well, I feel like the category could be expanded.

    I know there's the Homewares…

  2. Ability to cross link our items

    It would be very useful to be able to cross link items. The limited description field and images mean that some item which I would have grouped, now have to be split but I still need the customer to know that the alternative option is available.

  3. Obvious feedback tab needed

    I've got a shop here and have no feedback, I've just purchased items and not been able to find the feedback tab to leave feedback - please make it obvious so that a buyer can find it without looking ( I've still not found it!)

  4. Sub Category for Dog Bandana

    I have to use handmade dog collars and I don't think it's helping me get found for my dog bandanas.

  5. free shipping banner on listings

    Hi - would it be possible to have a free shipping graphic on thumbnail/main listing photographs so that customers browsing can see straight away that the price includes shipping ?

    I remember Folksy saying that offering free shipping, even if you have included it in the price, can encourage buyers.

    thanks

  6. Pierced earrings returns

    Should have words to the the effect 'Please note that for hygiene reasons we are unable to refund pierced goods or cosmetics Unless faulty,' as how does the seller know if they've been worn? Can't re sell goods through due diligence, even online companies have this exclusion.

  7. It would be useful if we could create a free postage code, rather than a discount code. That way we could introduce new buyers to our shops

    It would be useful if we could create a free postage code, rather than a discount code. Or even just a code that we could set the value of - a little bit like a gift voucher redeemed on Purchases.
    That way we could introduce new buyers to our shops with a free postage offer - or it could be given or used for people in our local area.

  8. Link to Folksy interview for featured sellers.

    Would it be possible for previous featured sellers to have a link to their Folksy interview where the star is presently - ?

    It may help in promoting in yourself as you can share your processes etc, and people can find out more about the maker if they want to.

    thanks -x-

  10. The ability to use CSV files for bulk uploads of new inventory.

    Using a CSV file with all your data under sub headings allows you to upload all of your inventory in one upload rather than having to list all items individually and would save a ridiculous amount of time.

  11. How do I find my 'favourites' please?

    Difficult to find the favourites link (although I am using folksy via Instagram on small iPhone). Could be more obvious perhaps in your ''menu" have an obvious symbol for 'my favourites'. This might already exist. Just giving my feedback. 😂 This is an awesome website 🙌🙌 Love art myself and when I have more time in the future I'd love to get back into it x

  12. Free Shipping option if buyer lives in your local area/vicinity

    Could we have a Free Shipping option (only available to buyers who live in your immediate local area/vicinity?). You can deliver it in person @ the buyer's house once payment is received.

    This would be better than buyer coming to your house.

  13. Search facility within listings

    Hello, I have brought this up before, but it was a good while back. I really think a search facility is needed when we are managing our listings.

    I currently have three pages of listings, and although archaic it is possible to use CTRL &F to try to search, but it isn't possible from a mobile.

    I have closed my shop previously due to the unmanageable dashboard/clumsy workarounds, and hoped it had been resolved, especially as a decent Stats system had been recently given a facelift.

    Also the option to delete/hide a listing when viewing the item would be very…

  14. A channel to reply to enquiries through Folksy rather than through own email. I had an enquiry from a buyer through Folksy las week w

    I had an enquiry from a buyer through Folksy las week wanting to know if I could supply an item that she thought was the perfect item in time for an anniversary gift. I replied immediately. And was surprised that someone so keen did not come back so I emailed another 2 times .....apologising in case she had changed her mind and wondering if my reply had arrived.
    She replied yesterday saying that she had only just seen my reply in her spam folder........she thought I had not replied and had bought elsewhere.
    One, this makes me look like I…

  15. Stock identification numbers

    It would be useful for us to be able to give each item we list an individual stock number when listing an item so we can easily identify which item has been sold.
    For instance our seaweed themed decorations are all slightly different but very similar to look at on a photo online. I label each item here before it goes into stock but when one is sold on Folksy i have to go by the pictures to know which particular one has been ordered. Having a stock number would tell me instantly which item to go to.

  16. A category for leathercrafts

    A category for Leather, leather crafts, tools etc.

    As this is becoming a very popular craft, but there is no real provision within the categories.

  17. Membership only by Approval

    I have written to the Folksy operators to suggest that membership of Folksy should be "juried" or, perhaps a more appropriate term, "following approval". Folksy has a clear and serious problem dealing with the removal of unsuitable shops, products and applicants from the listings. This is primarily due to the easy, more-or-less-instant application process that is currently used.

    Applications should include not only the person's UK address details but also a general description of the goods to be sold, along with actual images of a few products. It does mean that Folksy staff would have to manually check and approve…

  18. Flagging when shop owners are listing something that could be potentially not allowed on Folksy

    There has been a bit of a debate on the Folksy forum about some of the new shops selling items that we believe aren't allowed on Folksy. They could be items that aren't really handmade or could have been made outside the UK, they could be items that are being resold, they could be items infringing copyright etc etc.

    http://talk.folksy.com/t/time-for-a-crackdown-folksy/9285/467

    I'm suggesting that Folksy write something in to the computer program both to let sellers know when they are listing something that might be deemed in appropriate to sell and to trawl through all the existing listings too.

  19. Larger area for description & bulk upload photos

    When listing a product can the description area be bigger so I can see all I am writing and can I upload all my 5 photos at once instead of one at a time.

    I have just joined and can add products twice as fast on my own website and three times on Esy and Eby. I love the idea of a British craft site but am dissapointed by the backend set up.

    I dont really expect to get some interest in my Folksy site untill I have at least 50 products listed but at this rate it…

  20. Make it more obvious that sellers should fill in their Profile (Meet the maker info)

    Many new shops don't have the 'meet the maker' info filled in. I looked for mine just now and it took me ages to find it - it's in My Profile way down on my dashboard menu. And it is not at all obvious that the info you enter here is displayed to vistors when they click your name at the top of your shop.

    Suggest that this is moved into the 'Shop Settings' page, and an explanation of how it is used to be added. Prompt people to say how long they have been crafting for, what techniques they…
