    We are currently creating an API for Folksy listings which will allow us to launch an app for sellers. Sellers would then be able to use this on their mobile devices and tablets to list and manage their Folksy orders on Folksy. At this stage the app will be for sellers rather than customers, but all the development work we are doing on Folksy is now in an app-friendly format so that it can be used by app technology in the future.

    You can now add Folksy listings to your Facebook page by creating a catalogue on Facebook. We have set up a new data feed page to make this easier. Just add .rss to your whole shop URL (eg https://folksy.com/shops/claregetscrafty.rss) and follow the instructions here https://www.facebook.com/business/help/384041892421495?id=725943027795860

    Actually, the development of an app would benefit so many UK sellers, and encourage them to sell through a UK based platform instead of paying fees to overseas companies, that it should also be of interest to the government to support it. Maybe there is some kind of grant available? Or some patriotic members of the dragon's den!

    Also, I rely on app notifications to my phone and tablet to respond quickly to enquiries and orders.

    Absolutely! I mostly use etsy to sell because I find it so much easier to add and manage listings (not just because of the app) I also do most of my online shopping using apps on my tablet. I really want a UK based site to be my only outlet, but it needs to be easier!

    This would make all the difference to me, and make it much easier for me to use folksy as my main outlet

    The majority of my sales are for custom, personalised items. I need it to be as easy as possible for a customer to request an order, and for me to create a custom, private listing for that customer.
