Videos for listings please
Not sure if this has been suggested before but a video of our listings would be so useful.
I find using videos on Instagram produces more interest and really highlights my work as well as photos. So it would be great to have this option3 votes
Sometimes I want to be able to look back at an order so the ability to search would be useful. Perhaps see if a customer has ordered from me before. Orders don’t seem to stay chronological either which doesn’t help.7 votes
Make colour tags searchable
I was surprised to find that colour tags aren't searchable when you're using the search bar - which I think will be how most people use the site. Could they be made searchable the same way ordinary tags are? Sometimes there is more than one way to describe a colour and it looks odd if the description is peppered with alternative colour names - the tags are surely a better place.10 votes
Color Correction Services
Images are made of pixels. Millions of tiny little dots are put together and create the big picture—these pixels define the image that you hold. Pixels contains color in them. In each image, you have a collection of colors arranged in patterns that make up a whole picture. Correcting these colors can dramatically change the effect it creates in a person’s mind.3 votes
Sub category under bracelets & bangles for jewellery
My jewellery is all made using crystals. Currently for my earrings & necklaces I have the option of "gemstones" as a subcategory but gemstones doesn't appear under bracelets & bangles, so I have to list them as "beaded".
If we can have gemstones under necklaces, pendants & earrings, can we have gemstones under bracelets & bangles please2 votes
Add a section for Unisex jewellery
Currently I have to decide whether to list some items as mens jewellery versus large sized womens jewellery where it is in fact suitable for both. Would be good to be able to list it as unisex.5 votes

Use crowd funding to start advertising campaign
I'm new to folksy, I have just subscribed to a plus account. I deliberated over it quite a bit because of Folksy's poor general exposure compared to some of its rivals. I get it you don't want to sell your soul to the devil, but that excuse only gets you so far. If you conduct yourself ethically then whats the problem with increased traffic, sales, exposure. I also get the catch 22, No bucks No Buck Rogers! So if the Folksy community gets it, then they won't mind if you ask them to help and use crowd funding to fuel some growth. I'm new on Etsy too and I hate it, There seems to be a lot of people who feel the same in the UK, so do it right and give them a proper viable alternative. Don't just say you are. Prove it and do it! Sorry if I annoyed anyone its not my intention, I just want to do my thing and get on.

gemstone option for bracelets
There is currently no 'gemstone' category when listing bracelets however there is for other jewellery items. Suggest this is added.1 vote
Request customer mobile phone number at checkout
Many (most?) couriers require a phone number as well as an email address for deliveries but Folksy does not ask customers to provide a phone number. In order to place an order with the courier I usually use my own mobile phone number. This means the customer does not receive parcel tracking text messages. Also, occasionally a courier may have trouble locating a property and if they have a phone number they will call the customer. I think is would be useful if Folksy requested (not required) a mobile phone number at checkout.Interested to know if others agree.3 votes
An improved description for the Scotland gift guide
Suggest making it more arts and crafts focused - current description is quite stereotypical and patronising and misses the opportunity to highlight a strong craft tradition.5 votes

Keep sold items visible in shop but mark as ‘sold’
I make repeats of my birds and when they sell out and therefore disappear from my shop, customers get irritated because they look for an item and can’t find it. They don’t see the ‘sold items’ link. If the products were still visible in my shop but marked ‘sold out’ at least they can see all the details, price, size etc, and that is was available but now sold. Hope this makes sense 😃15 votes
Notifications when new reviews have been left
Please can we have some kind of notification when new reviews have been posted on our shops. could it possibly be added to shop stats, or shop activity? Or an email notification? Thanks35 votesunder review · AdminFolksy (Folksy Support, Folksy) responded
We agree this would be really useful. It’s on our job list.
Make similar alternative suggestions for unavailable items
I noticed that currently Folksy suggests random alternative items from my shop when I view a sold item. Would be better if it suggested items from the same section of my shop in the first instance and only suggest those from other categories if there aren't any similar e.g. if someone is looking at a copper bangle which has sold, suggest other items from my copper jewellery or bracelet section rather than a scarf.2 votes
