Suggested Features

Please add any suggestions for site features here. There’s no guarantee we will be able to implement your idea, but we welcome your thoughts!

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

    We are currently creating an API for Folksy listings which will allow us to launch an app for sellers. Sellers would then be able to use this on their mobile devices and tablets to list and manage their Folksy orders on Folksy. At this stage the app will be for sellers rather than customers, but all the development work we are doing on Folksy is now in an app-friendly format so that it can be used by app technology in the future.

    You can now add Folksy listings to your Facebook page by creating a catalogue on Facebook. We have set up a new data feed page to make this easier. Just add .rss to your whole shop URL (eg https://folksy.com/shops/claregetscrafty.rss) and follow the instructions here https://www.facebook.com/business/help/384041892421495?id=725943027795860

  3. HIde or Delete item from item page rather than dashboard listings

    Please can we have an option to hide or delete an item from the item page rather than having to go to the dashboard listings. If a shop has several pages of items it can be hard to find the item you want to hide or delete from the dashboard.

  4. May I suggest that when listing a newly crafted Item,that the Photo upload part be after the Title ,as it helps to describe if your photo is

    Place photo upload part of listing, up near the top of the page,as when describing an item it helps to see the photo as well as the real thing.

  5. Autocorrect feature in the search bar

    Hello Folksy
    I was having trouble looking for an item because I kept misspelling it, so my search was coming up with 0 results every time.

    I ended up googling the word in the end but most search bars correct you or make a suggestion such as ''Did you mean...'' I was wondering if we could have this as a feature in our search bar?

  6. sold items - multiple items not showing.

    Would it be possible to show multiples of items sold please - at the moment if lots of people buy the same item, only the latest sale shows. Therefore it looks like you only ever sell one of each type of item.

  7. Please can we have a change of policy?

    Instead of sellers having to get hot under the collar when a new shop infringes Folksy's terms and conditions of what can be sold, wouldn't it be easier if new shops were vetted by Folksy before they were published. It would save a lot of trouble, use of the report button (does it work?) and mildly annoyed emails when we spot these things. This would also give a new seller the chance to set up their shop properly before it goes public. At present they have to publish before they can see whether it looks right and has all the…

  9. Targeted discount codes - BOGOF and multi purchase options?

    Can we have the option for targeted discounts rather than discounts applying to the whole of a store.
    The ability to tag individual listings would be an easy fix and would be quicker and more professional than editing listings with separate write downs etc.

    Folksy should also implement codes for BOGOF and multi purchase discounts.

  10. Different delivery options for individual listings

    It would be really useful if for each listing customers could choose between different postage options. For example, guaranteed, first class or second class. Not everyone needs their orders immediately, so customers can save money on delivery costs.

  11. Adjustable thumbnail images

    It's not always possible to crop an image to be square. So it would be great if you could allow us to move/resize the thumbnail, so that if the item is not exactly in the centre of your image or it's not possible to make the image square, you can adjust the thumbnail so that it doesn't look badly cropped and messy.
    Currently I'm having to constantly re-crop my image to try and make sure the thumbnail is centered which is very fiddly. Shop images don't need to be square so seems weird the thumbnail is a forced, un-customisable crop…

  12. Shop collection photos in square format

    Whilst we all strive to achieve better photos why is it that throughout Folksy "square" format photos work best whilst those associated with our shop collections are in a rectangular format and therefore often have detail cropped from them. Please could these be changed to square format so that the shop front doesn't look careless and sloppy!

  13. Set my own processing times for made-to-order items

    21 days is not enough time for me to process some made-to-order items so I use other sites to offer these "high end" products to my customers. I'd like to set my own timescales on Folksy please.

    I would love to be able to give and receive Folksy gift vouchers. I hope that is something that you can consider in the future.

  16. Thumbnails link to actual items?

    I've found it frustrating when shopping that I'll see something interesting on the front page, or as a thumbnail for a category, and then when I click on it it takes me to a page of related listings but not the one in the image (unless I scroll through a couple of pages - sometimes it's not there at all!)

    Is there a way to make sure that if an item is used as a thumbnail/tease image that it actually appears in the page that that click leads you to?

  18. Enable buyers to instantly download digital purchases. I.e. for PDF sewing & knitting patterns

    I sell e-patterns and would like to be able to upload them to each listing so a buyer can instantly download it once purchased to save me having to email it for every sale.
    A category for PDF downloads would be great, its vastly becomming the preferred option for buyers of sewing patterns and other websites are offering this. It could cover a wide range of tutorials such as crafts, arts and digital supplies.

  19. Hyperlinks

    Please could we have the ability to post hyperlinks to other listings in our descriptive text. For example - blue cushion cover . I have a matching red one which makes up a pair (hyperlink to that listing ). I think this would be a really useful additional tool to help promote our items.

  20. Shop Stats

    Is it possible to make the shop or item views clearer, something along the lines of Etsy?? With the current Folksy system I find it difficult to tell how many views I've had per item per day. I have set up Google analytics but do not find that particularly helpful, not very user friendly nor intuitive. Cheers.
