  1. Unavailable on holiday is not the same as out of stock

    When I was on holiday I received this message
    "We have been looking for some time and saw your kingfisher suncatcher but disappointed to see it is unavailble. Will you be making anymore as we would like 2 please"

    I wrote back to say that it was unavailable as i was on holiday not because i hadn't got one.

    It struck me that a lot of customers would simply walk away and not bother if they saw that message. Fortunately i responded and in a couple of weeks will be selling 2 on here.

    The problem arises because when in…

  3. Search function in my listings

    It would be great to be able to search my own listings, since it can be quite hare to find an item that I need to remove if it has been sold elsewhere or to copy it for a new similar listing.
    This could also be solved by giving us a 'copy' and a 'hide' button on the item page next to the 'edit' button.
    Would make my life that bit easier :o)

  5. When listing an item sellers are required to put in a date when it was made.

    I click the blank space at the top of the month column and put in the year. When the item is added to my shop the month shown is January.
    WHY IS THE BLANK SPACE THERE IF IT IS NOT AN OPTION NOT HAVE A MONTH?

    Any one else frustrated by this?

  6. Change the pin icon and categories shown in our shops

    The pin in our shops under the 'designed by' takes people out of our shops after we have worked hard to get them there.

    It would make more sense if the links took them to other items in the same category IN our shops rather than similar items in other peoples shops.

  7. Improve listing thumbnails

    It's annoying that item thumbnails that appear on the listings page do not appear in their entirety when their aspect ratio does not match that of the thumbnail frame. Surely it's not that difficult to autosize the picture so that the entire image fits within the thumbnail frame, adding a border either at the top or side where necessary

  8. Select a Gift List to browse

    At the moment the homepage includes links to a gift list or two- which look randomly selected? I would like to be able to chose a list to look at- why not have a drop down menu at the top, like there is for jewellery, art etc?

  9. Custom Listing

    Can we have a way of creating a custom listing for an item that has not been made yet, eg pet portrait. Maybe rather than a buy it button, a "start an order" button or "reserve an option"/"deposit" button. I don't like having to charge for a completed item without having discussed with the customer all the details and ensured I am able to complete the item they are requesting.

  10. Please can we have a section for GLASS ?

    There are many hobby fusers in the UK looking to sell their work and looking for nice supplies. I have just started listing a few supplies which aren't in shops and my only available section is under 'commercial' . Most of my glass embellishments are hand made. If we fusers could have a place to find glassy items for sale, I think it might be a big help. Thank you, Dee x

  11. 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.

  13. hallmark laws

    I just wanted to clear up the confustion about the precous metals hall marketing laws, I am a member of the Goldsmith London Assay Office and this is what they have said, you only have to hallmark your items if the sterling silver finished piece weights 7.7g or more, if the weight is below this you can legally sell your work even with the 925 stamped on a finding that has been pre-stamped.

  14. Can we have a Mono Print section under Printmaking?

    There is presently no area for such prints and placing them in 'Other Prints' would immediately see them sink without trace.
    As Mono prints are high end art it would seem appropriate they had their own section.Until a section is offered we will have to hold back listing them here on Folksy and instead list them elsewhere, such a shame as they would add another dimension to both our shop and to Folksy.

  15. Ability to see price in "listed items" (Seller Dash > Manange Listings) list

    I would love it if the "listed items" list showed prices and possibly postage too. I often want to refer to the price of an item for another listing or for a customer enquiry elsewhere and it is a pain to have to go right into the product listing to get its price/postage.

  16. Pet Categories

    Please could we have a separate category for pets. At the moment it is combined with the garden, as "garden & pets". As i like to make all different types of pet clothes (such as scarfs etc etc) it would be much more helpful for me & customers. At the moment the only option is to put most items in the "all other stuff" subdivision...... which is not much fun or descriptive. Thank you for looking at this.

  17. Download your shop orders to help with accounts

    I'd like to be able to download a csv file of my sales so that I can add them into my accounts package or spreadsheets in one go, rather than having to do it all manually.

    Thank you please

  18. Show that you've reduced a price

    It would be good if you could show a price reduction when you have a sale i.e. was £15 now £10 with the £15 crossed through so the buyers can see that you have actually reduced it as opposed to just saying that you have.

  19. Shopkeeping ....

    Please can any items that have NOT been catagorised please appear at the top of the page and not at the bottom when listing a new item or anywhere when listing a copied listing!
    When you have a large shop it is extremely time consuming to sort through it.
