  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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

          • 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.

            • 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.

                • Page views

                  Would it be possible to show how many times an item has been viewed in total? It would be handy to have the info when you view your listings, maybe along side the amount of likes you have had.

                  • Store history

                    Please could we have information added to our shop fronts which tells customers how long we have been with Folksy - surely it would be reassurance for some.

                    • Adding an alternative to Paypal as a Payment Method

                      Is it possible to expand the payment options to include something other than Paypal? I know of a lot of people who aren't comfortable using Paypal and it would be good to have a choice of methods rather than just one. I know that we can accept cheques/bank drafts etc and then contact folksy to mark them as paid, but it would be good to offer a different method that was just a couple of clicks rather than a long winded conversation . Since I've been able to accept cards as well as paypal elsewhere, I've found most sales are…

                      • Nightwear category

                        At the moment there is no specific category for nightwear. Nightwear currently appears under, category: Lingerie, sub-category: Everything Else or Category: Clothing and Shoes, sub-category: pyjamas. Because there is not much nightwear on the site, I think it would be better to have one catch all sub-category of nightwear either in the Lingerie or Clothing and Shoes category.

                        • Improvements that need making to reduce acidental purchase's and make it clearer shipping charges on muliple shop orders

                          Shipping doesn't appear until you are ready to confirm order and there is no cancel button at that point, which might help customers who make a mistake, and is there away of showing shipping when
                          you add something to a basket as if you buy form multiple shops it could come as a shock?
                          A remove items or empty basket button might also help.
                          if someone wants to cancel for whatever reason and they are told to contact the seller, yet sellers can't cancel for 24 hrs and at the weekend there is no Folksy support. It also means items…

                          • would be great if I could create my own wish list that family and friends could access.

                            To be able to save favourite items into a wish list that others can view and buy from would be great.

                              • Encouraging the value of crafted items

                                We are damaging our planet by over emphasis on constantly having new things, this is encouraged by large multinational encouraging the latest season and the quality declines. With hand crafted items we should value the time and effort that goes in to them and so should discourage the constant obsession with new designs. If Folky was to adopt this attitude may be everyone would stop re-listing their items to make them look new.

                                    With the all new shop face (LOVE LOVE LOVE it by the way!!) please can we have the ability to upload collection images.

                                    I've set my shop (currently) with 18 collections and all of my items are in at least 2 of them. I've just tried to make it so each category has a different style and colour of glass work so it show a wide selection of the pieces I make so it looks inviting. When listing a new item it puts it in at the top of the list and once I've gone into my shopkeeping page and…

                                    • New links to facebook/ twitter/ blog etc. to open in a new window/ tab

                                      The new links to our individual facebook and other social media profiles are great - thank you. But could they please open in a new window or a new tab as it takes the viewer right out of Folksy and away from the shop where we want them to stay! It's great for people to be able look into us and our work before buying but it would be good if they remained on site as well. Thanks.

                                      • Drop down menus should not need an extra click. They should automatically display all items.

                                        Depending on what category you want sometimes you have to open View All. So unfair advantage of some shops over others. For example, if you want a beaded bracelet then the category is on view when you select the jewellery item. If it's glass you need then you have to View All. If you are a new shopper to Folksy then it's possible you would not know to do this. Also research shows the less clicks a potential buyer has to make the more likely they are to buy.

                                        • The ability to have the name of your town name appear underneath your name

                                          If there was an option to add the name of your town followed by UK instead of just United Kingdom and have it appear under your name in your shop.

                                          Buyers would stand a better chance of finding local shops and would be able to opt for collection and save the cost of postage.

                                          Sometimes the cost of postage can be more than the cost of the actual item.
