  1. link site to social media and personal "who has viewed what" section

    • folksy.it short links available to us for twitter/fb etc.

      I'd love to have access to the folksy.it short links for my product listings, as I think it's great to let people know on twitter and fb what they are clicking on without using a massive untidy looking link.

      I know fb previews links, but often I want to actually upload a photo of the product and put the link in the photo description as this looks bigger and better than linking directly to an item on fb.

      • Character count for descriptions.

        As we are limited to 1500 characters for our descriptions it would make writing them much easier if we had a built in counter which would tell us how many characters we have remaining. It's a waste of time to have to copy and paste the descriptions into a word-processing document to edit it's length.

          • Offer buyers a choice of 1st or 2nd class postage

            With Royal Mail putting up the price of stamps again (grr!) it would be good to be able to offer a choice of cheaper or faster postage depending on the buyer's needs.

              This is a nice idea. The full range of postage options (1st class, 2nd class, signed-for, recorded delivery, personal collection, etc) might be a little tricky to design for though, not to mention more complicated for buyers.

              We’ll have a think though and will consider what might work best.

              Many thanks,

              Frankie

            • 'Copy Listing' directly from listing page

              It would save loads of time if we could 'copy' an image the same way we can 'edit' an image directly from the items page within our shops. It's a faff to find the listing in the dashboard lists and select copy from there - takes ages!

              • Text messages sent when you sell something

                Text messages sent to your phone when you sell an item or get a message on folksy, this would improve speed of sales, and also if you buy something you could then get gentle text reminders if you do not pay / leave feedback within reasonable time. This could be a feature CHOSEN by the folksy sellers as some sellers may not want this features.

                      We will be reviewing the way that feedback works in the future, and will take this situation into consideration, so that we can more accurately reflect positive buying experiences on the site.

                    • Being able to search completed (already sold) listings.

                      This is something that eBay has which is a good way of looking at what prices similar things to yours have sold at, so you can price your item reasonably for the buyer and you don't have to hang around for ages before realising your item is priced too expensively. Also good for buyers to find out what's a reasonable price.

                      • Returning to edit

                        When you list or edt an item, we are taken to see item and no option to edit another without having to go back to our shop again., It would be good to be able to list another there or edit another !

                        • The Option of Seeing Your Listing Balance Including VAT

                          I've been away from Folksy for quite a few months so I didn't realise that this was now added separately so it came a little bit of a shock to find that the listing feed didn't include it and was added at the checkout. I'd been in a monthly listing club so it added quite a bit to my overall bill. Thanks.

                          • Stock identification numbers

                            It would be useful for us to be able to give each item we list an individual stock number when listing an item so we can easily identify which item has been sold.
                            For instance our seaweed themed decorations are all slightly different but very similar to look at on a photo online. I label each item here before it goes into stock but when one is sold on Folksy i have to go by the pictures to know which particular one has been ordered. Having a stock number would tell me instantly which item to go to.
