  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Collections Images

    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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Ability to adjust a main image if it is tall, so that you can see the top and not just the middle

    My fashion illustrations are tall and thin, but when I upload an image to my shop, all you can see is the middle of design. It would not tempt anyone to click on the image and my shop front doesn't look professional. Please could we have a feature so that we can adjust the main photo to show the top of an image ?

  11. please can you change the wording on the 'Holiday Mode' announcement to something more general.

    Currently says Holiday! 'We're currently away and won't be able to process orders!' but I think it needs to be more general for those closing their shops for other reasons.

    I've just popped my shop in holiday mode as it's half term- spending time with kids and prepping for upcoming fairs and spending less time online for a week. I'm NOT away and really not happy that the current shop announcement suggests I'm not at home- it's a security risk .Something more general like 'Shop temporarily Closed- We will reopen soon' would fit most circumstances. Space to add reopen dates…

  12. "Mark as Posted" in bulk

    Hi! Am having to mark almost 40 items as posted, and it's really frustrating having to mark one as posted, then go back, then refresh the page, each time. Even when someone has bought 2 items and got combined postage, there's no option to mark both as posted. It seems unnecessarily time-consuming? I'm new here, though, so maybe I've missed that ability?

    Thanks so much.

  13. I would like the customer to be able to see how many time an item has been re listed.

    When customers look at things in Folksy shops they have no indication how long ago the item was made. People want to have the newest and freshest ideas and not 'old' stock, that may be looking a bit tired.
    This can only improve the reputation of Folksy for having wonderful new inventive ideas, keep Folksy shopkeepers refreshing their stocks regularly and have contented customers who are not disappointed with what they receive through the post, which is bought, don't forget after only seeing a photo.

    I think it's better to get something that is better than you expected than less…

  14. "Search this shop" feature - please!!

    I have lots of items in my shop, even I have trouble finding a particular item!

    My customers are now emailing me and asking "do you have any Alice in Wonderland things left" etc. Then I have to trawl through my shop and send them the links as they cannot be bothered to scroll through my whole shop looking for them.

    I know that this loses me sales - and Folksy money. It's madness, and a very basic requirement.

    PLEASE look into this as a matter of importance - Etsy is looking more attractive by the second!

  15. Please add the ability to filter by location of item.

    I would like to be able to get things made by artisans local to the area, not only for purposes of shipping cost/time, but also as a way to discover nearby businesses or businesses in areas I will be traveling in. Additionally, as some items are custom made, knowing that the seller is local gives the opportunity to do fittings or to see items in person.

  16. Option for Gift Receipt

    I'd like the option to be able to print a gift receipt. A customer asked me to send their purchase direct to their friend as a gift, and wanted me to include a gift receipt without the price.
    This isn't possible at present and it seems to me to be something that we should be able to do. It is common practice elsewhere and a lot of people buy things as gifts.

  17. How do I sell jewellery sets?

    I want to sell a matching set of jewellery (necklace, earrings and bracelet), but only seem to be able to select individual categories. Is it possible to group them all together and sell as a set?

  18. Ability To Convert UK Currency USA Currency

    If you would have some kind of currency converter on the Folksy site; would be helpful to anyone that doesn't know, or understand, your Country's currency.

  19. Improve header image resize in beta shop front

    Really liking the new (beta) shop front trial !

    - one thing I have noticed is the shop header image doesn't resize very well when changing window size & when loaded in mobile version.

  20. A 'Sale' or 'Special Offer' format for listings please

    I'm trying to run a 7 day promotion at the moment in my 'Spare' shop, but it's all very manual to list offer, and show discount. I'd also like to run the offer for a limited time, then revert back to full price.

    Would be lovely to have the ability to do this is a more commercial format. And also have a sale / special offer section on Folksy so users can find these discounts easily, when available. Good for customers, good for sellers.

    You can see at the moment, all I can do is add the word sale to…
