Been to look at it but can’t work it out at all! Can’t work out how you add your store but maybe its because I’m using my ipad. My computer is at the menders at the moment so can’t try it on there. If anyone works it out let us know! My daughter uses it to search for things she likes so it might be a useful tool for us sellers.

I noticed that people on other sites can claim their shop and be verified but people on folksy can’t :frowning:

Other than that, it looks pretty cool. Gonna give it a shot and see what happens.

I use it myself. It is pretty easy from what i have seen of it. Just paste a link to your product and anyone who is interested will be sent to your folksy page or the page you pasted from.

I can’t say i have had much traffic or any sales from it but i will still use it anyway :smiley:

A couple of years ago when I had a Society Six shop, I put stuff on Wanelo as I had heard that others did. All that really happened was that a load of 16 year old girls ‘liked’ a few things and moved on. They were having fun but it didn’t do much for me. I think it is probably good for views more than sales unless what you sell appeals to 16 year old girls and if they have disposable income anyway. . . It might all be very different now.

mmmm not sure but I’ve just put 2 of my items on there. I don’t find it easy to follow and work with like pinterest

update.

I put a few items on yesterday and finding it a lot easier.

Also it appears my views for yesterday have shot up.

I don’t know if that was all due to Wanelo or a mix of Wanelo and picklist.me which I used yesterday as well.

I just joined today after seeing it mentioned on here a few times.

Seems another pinterest type site but very easy to use.

I found ‘other items from Folksy’ and saved quite a lot to a board I have called items I like. I guess that’s the same idea as repining on pinterest.

Obviously at this stage I don’t know if it will help but it’s free and takes no time at all to use so that’s good enough for me!
