Please add any suggestions for site features here. There’s no guarantee we will be able to implement your idea, but we welcome your thoughts!

  1. "save as draft" option any time soon?

    Do you have any intention of introducing a "save as draft" option any time soon? I see this request goes back quite some time. It would make the process of uploading new listings much easier.

  2. Please find some way of leaving feedback with guest log in purchases

    Please find some way of leaving feedback with guest log in purchases, I have just had sales of 4 items through guest log in, and whilst the customers have let me know to my own email account that they are happy,my positive feedback score is suffering.. This problem will only get worse as I suspect most people will buy though guest now they can

  3. New category under office for pens/ biros/ball points

    Could be have a category for pens under office? The pens used for artwork are not the same and people looking for a pen to buy as a gift are more likely to look under office. Artists will look for special pens used to create art under art.

  4. Shop Noticeboard needed on every page, shop front and individual listing pages.

    There is currently no facility to post a shop notice - the only options if

    a. I need to say - "I'm going away in a week, please order now"

    is to fiddle with my shop banner and stick a message onto there....(I do do this) ..
    but... even then that is only visible to people coming in via my shop front and not on the individual listing pages.
    or

    b. "My shop is closed but only for today, I'm going to a wedding / funeral / Xmas fair / psychiatrist / dentist etc etc - and I will be…

    Sorry for the delayed update! There is now a Shop Noticeboard (‘Your shop announcement’) feature on Folksy. If you haven’t used it yet, you can find it at the bottom of the Shop Settings section of your Dashboard. We hope you find this useful.

  5. Can we remove the price from sold items?

    I know this has been asked before and was declined with the suggestion that we edit the listing to remove the price or change the price. One little problem, I don't seem to have the ability to edit the listing once it has been sold. I make one of a kind items mostly and over the years my pricing structure has changed so that I now make a profit. If I remake something that I made 3 years ago and sold for £35 but using different yarn and with my new pricing structure I decide to price at £80, customers…

  6. Please can the Front Page "unsigned" revert to the same interesting display as the "signed in" version

    In the forum at the moment there is a thread about sales picking up http://talk.folksy.com/t/are-your-sales-picking-up/3275.

    There have been strong suggestions that some shops have seen a decline in views since the Front page was split (in September ?) between the signed in (Good) and Unsigned in (Boring) versions.

    I added this comment to the forum post after reading yet another remark about the front screen.

    "I do agree though that the unsigned in Front Page does absolutely nothing to entice potential customers who have come in to Folksy via that route to linger or even explore further.

    There has…

    While we do still have a signed in and signed out front page (usertesting suggested that new/guest buyers needed slightly different signposting on the front page), the two views are now more in line with each other and hopefully the signed out page is more interesting without being too confusing. We’re continuing to test this and will review/make changes accordingly.

  7. Please can we have a sub section in Dolls & Collectibles called Dolls House Miniatures

    The Collectors market for Dolls House Miniatures is very large with lots of people with plenty of money to spend in this area.
    There are now more people listing dolls house miniatures on Folksy and as sellers we would like a specific category for them in the Dolls & Collectibles Section.

  8. Confirmation email

    Would be really useful to have a confirmation email sent automatically to a custom when they place an order.

    All buyers are already sent an automatic confirmation email when they place an order. This email goes to their registered email address if they are a registered Folksy user, or the email address they stated at checkout if they are a guest buyer

  9. Listing Variations

    It would be incredibly helpful to me, especially for my clothing range, to have an option to list different sizes and prices of the same design (all in one listing). perhaps with a drop down menu for customers to select their size. For example, if I list a dress which is £28 upto 18 months but £35 for larger sizes, i have to list the item for the cheaper price to entice customers, but then risk losing them when they find out it costs more for larger sizes. Perhaps have a 'From' price to make it clearer?

  10. If a user searches on multiple words, then only items that match all of those words are returned

    If a user searches on multiple words, then only items that match all of those words are returned

    Please add this facility. In a previous comment you say that this has been done. However, it's just not working. If I type into the search area "Long red necklace", I do not get results that match all that criteria at all. I seem to get everything that has either "long", "red" or "necklace" in its description. I can't see how buyers are going to find my items like this. It is terribly frustrating and seems such a basic function of a…

  11. why can't you copy a listing so you can sell similar items and list them quickly?

    why can't you copy a listing so you can post similar items to ones you have already for sale in your shop without having to do every listing from scratch? saves A LOT OF TIME

    Hi there

    It is possible to copy listings. To do this, go to your Dashboard, click on ‘Listings’ on the left hand side and then click the ‘Copy’ button alongside the item you wish to copy.

  12. Search by categories, as well as key words

    When searching for products I would like to be able to search by category, as well as key word. For example, I wanted to return to a product I had seen earlier, 'lime green....' and had to trawl all through every and any item to get to the baby cardi I was searching for. This would also help to find items as currently I have to guess exact descriptions, ie did seller type cardi or cardigan (or cardigen in some cases).

    You can now refine any search by category, which should resolve this problem. Also search has been improved so that small spelling errors are taken into account.

    Hi there

    It is possible to do this already. Edit your items using the ‘edit this item’ link on the right hand side of the item page, or by going to the ‘Listings’ section of your Dashboard and clicking ‘edit’ alongside the item. Simply drag and drop the images into the order you want them in.

  14. Can we have a 'view your posts' feature on the forum please.

    As above really, most forums have this and I find it useful to keep track of my posts.

  15. being able to attach images in messages

    When customers have messaged you and are interested in commissioning a piece from you, it would be great if you could be able to attach a photo or image of your proposed design in your message, so it keeps you and your customer in Folksy and not have get them to give you their email address.
    Thank you

  16. Featured Items

    Something I like about Etsy is that you can select a number of 'featured' items, which will appear at the top of the page and will be the first items your customer is greeted with when visiting your shop. I think this would be a great idea for Folksy, as currently I have no way of arranging the order of my listings unless I delete them and relist them in the preferred order - which would take a while!

    Featured items are now available for Plus sellers. You will need a Plus account and update to the ‘new look’ shopfronts to enable this


    Good news! We’re making your shop better. This work will be released over the next few weeks and will include bring able to feature items (Plus accounts only). The latest seller email contains more information:

    http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=3d1c6a149b4d82013b3fd0b15&id=8d98b11d56&e=020a45cb1f

    We’ll be updating you on the shop work in a separate email soon and also talking about the work on the Folksy blog.

  17. The ability to cancel an order immediately instead of waiting 24 hours

    Having had 3 non paying buyers in little more than a week I find the most annoying thing is having to wait 24 hours to cancel the order. In my experience if a customer intends to pay for an item they either will straight away or they will email to say they're having difficulties, if neither happens then usually the customer has either bought the item by accident and had no intention of purchasing or they've simply changed their mind after committing to buy.

    I'm not one for sending chasing emails to customers to goad them into paying for something…

  19. Photo's turning Side Ways - BUG - Sort it. It's not the uploader, it's the website!

    Hi. could some one please sort this bug. My images are taken with a normal camera. I remember i had this issue 2 months back and stopped using folksy. So I've worked out the bug for you so please fix it as it's wasting not just my time others.

    Right, from what i gather it's due to the pixels, especially if you have long photos for example px w300 and hight 1000px

    It will turn the photo side ways!

    So to correct this, crop the photo until you get a more or less even square size at - 500px x…

    Hi there

    You can’t create a similar listing to another seller’s item on Folksy but you can copy your own listing once you have created one. To do this, go to Dashboard > Listings and then click on ‘copy’ alongside the listing you want to copy.
