  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 ?

  4. 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…

  5. "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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  11. 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…

  12. Can dates be added to Holiday mode

    Please can you make it possible for Shop owners to put up the dates of when their shop will be closed and then re open ?
    Preferably underneath the shop banner in large and bold lettering for customers.

  13. Could Folksy do something similar to Etsy, where it is easy to see other sellers' favourite items/shops? Helps with ideas for buying!

    On Etsy you can see what other sellers and buyers have favourited (items and shops). I find this really helpful - you often come across items you would never have found otherwise, especially if you find someone with similar tastes to yours. Could Folksy do something like this? If you find a shop you like, the chances are the seller will have favourited other items you will like and might want to buy.

  14. Please can you fix it to have "Pearl" as a category in Jewellery/bracelets? Thanks!

    I can post pearl items in "Earrings" and "Pendants & Necklaces", but not in "Bracelets" which is a bit odd (and rather frustrating as I make pearl bracelets)

  16. 'All' should not be a subcategory

    I have just noticed that when listing an item, 'All' is a subcategory option. As a buyer, if I select 'All' within a category, I expect to see just that - all the items within the category, not just those that have been added to a subcategory called 'All'.

    Please can you sort this out, as the way things stand at the moment I will have to list everything twice to stand half a chance of being found by buyers - once under the correct category (i.e. jewellery - earrings - glass) and once under 'All' (jewellery - earrings -…

  18. Easier to find where to pay

    Can you make it easier to find the paypal link when paying my bill?
    Been looking for a while now and still can't find it.

    My bill says pay by paypal below, but when I scroll down there's nothing there.

    (I assume you want my money)

  19. Made to order......

    Hi, I don't know if I am the only seller this effects but most of my items are made to order. Is it possible that under date made input area we could have a drop down for not yet made or made to order please.

    At the moment I stress as much as I can in my listing text and upon first contact with my customers that their items will be made once I have received their orders but would love to have the 'date made' input field accurate for my way of working.

    Many Thanks

  20. Remove edit sold items

    Click on a sold item and to the right of the image is 'edit this item'. I used this feature as I thought it was a way to copy a sold item. Unfortunately my sold item now has the same details as my new listing.

    It shouldn't be possible to change a listing once it has sold. It could lead to confusion and may look dishonest.
