  1. 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)

  3. '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 -…

  5. 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)

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. New Jewellery Category

    Please consider adding "Fine Silver" as a materials category for those of us who work in silver clay - its 99% pure silver, Sterling is 92.5%!

  9. Add a Phone Number field to sales area for Buyers

    Just a thought after the recent buyer problems.
    I think you should make the buyer leave a phone number, that way any problem could be resolved quite quickly over the phone.
    (It should be stated that the number would not be used for any other purpose)

  10. I would like to see different lists for 'just listed' (new items) and 're listed' (re listed or expired items)

    People will bulk re list because they can on the folksy plus plan, if the public could see only new items 'just listed' it would be fairer for the sellers who a) don't list very much b) don't bulk re list on principal and give a more realistic view of the site to purchasers.

    In this way constantly seeing the same things over and over could be avoided which would make the Folksy home page much more interesting.

  11. Bulk update prices

    If you wish to update all the prices in your shop it takes an age to go into each one individually. It would be wonderful if we could do a bulk update of prices in a way similar to the shipping prices. I'm putting off doing this as it's such a pain!

  13. As sellers do we have to show publicly the number of items we have sold (or not?!)

    I don't like this feature, particularly as I'm new to Folksy and haven't sold anything yet :/. I would rather the public not know how many items I've sold, is there a way of keeping this information private, is the number of items sold really relevant to buyers anyway?

  14. A specific category for woodcraft and particularly woodturning would be a huge improvement

    The search system will not find my woodturning as there is no specific woodcraft category and I'm sure that this is the reason behind the low viewing numbers. If customers are looking for wooden bowls for example they are really difficult to find. There seems little point in re-listing my items as without a specific category nobody can find them

  15. How about a basket for each shop?

    I understand the 'continue shopping' thing was removed (although I don't agree with the reasons), but I feel it should be included as an in-shop feature. When I buy supplies from a Folksy shop and want to add more items, hitting the 'back' button to do so is not intuitive. It feels, as a user, that I might lose my existing items. I still persevere, and it works but it's off-putting from a general user perspective.

  16. Bulk postage edit. Please show stock levels.

    When bulk editing my postal rates I found it showed all my current, unexpired, items including those out of stock.
    This was very confusing as I often have several listings for the same 'design', one of which is the current, the others, older versions, are already sold.
    This meant I then inadvertently increased the postal charges on several listings which I have sold (at a lower postal rate).

    Please can you show the stock level against each listing so that we can easily see which are current (stock > 0) and which are sold (stock 0).

  17. Please can we have the option of editing an item before relisting it.

    At the moment, the only option is to list, then quickly edit or mark as 'out of stock' to edit.I think this option means that your item temporarily appearing in the recently listed category (possibly on front page too)-I'm too busy quickly editing to find this out for sure!!
    Not good if your relist needs updating photo's/prices/spelling mistakes.

  18. A new category for Sale items

    Although there is now a category for Folksy Sale, this is chosen by Folksy. I think particularly at this time of year, sellers are missing the opportunity to clear back items and put some fresh new stock in their shops. If each defined area, e.g. Jewellery, home, etc. also had a Sale section, I think this would be helpful.

  19. Ability to add a personalised message onto the Folksy invoice...

    As there's quite a big blank space at the bottom of the printable invoices, and to save paper, just thought it would be a nice idea to be able to add a personalised message to the buyer...just like you're able to on Paypal.

    Whaddya think?

  20. Please have a category for Cake toppers eg. Food art under Sculpture or a Confectionary section not just under weddings

    Please have a category for Cake toppers eg. Food art under Sculpture or a Confectionary section not just under weddings as that is very limiting and is under the wrong sectoin.
