FAO admin gift guide promo

(Eileens Craft Studio) #1

Can you please remove that huge sticker from my shop that if clicked on takes people away from my shop.

This is not good its bad enough getting people to my shop without huge links taking people away from my shop.

Not happy @sianfolksy

November Sparklers Daily Listing Challenge Thread!

Me too! Finding it hard enough at the moment to get views, let alone sales!!!

(Claire Davis) #3

Another one here that’s not keen! It’s too distracting and easy to click on!

(Eileens Craft Studio) #4

It does NOT belong in our shops it belongs on the front page where the gift guides are I’m now writing to admin but I expect its a bit late for it to be removed to night

(Sarah Lambert) #5

Yes I agree, maybe for everyone that clicks on it I’ll get a pound of my Plus account money refunded, does that sound fair to you, does to me :smile:

(Liz Dyson) #6

Oooo, Sarah, @plainprimitives, I like that idea a lot.

(Eileens Craft Studio) #7

email sent I think we should all send emails now.

I’m wondering if its just a programming error and was meant to be on the front page rather than our shops

(Christine E.) #8

I’ve only just seen because you’re all talking about it. It is extremely annoying! I think what we have to realise is that Folksy admin don’t really give a …sorry, don’t really care…about us as individual sellers as long as they’re getting their fees from sales anywhere on the site…

(Joy Salt) #9

Am I being really silly - i can’t see anything odd on my page. Where is the sticker and what does it look like ?

(Eileens Craft Studio) #10

Joy go to one of your listings look to the side where the pinteret, facebook and twitter icons area and look below them.

@sianfolksy @Folksycontent @dougfolksy @JamesB, OOH EER I don’t like that, not one teeny little, or in this case really rather big, bit.

(Joy Salt) #12

Thanks Eileen. I’d only looked at my Shop page, not on an individual listing.

(Julie) #13

I won’t be renewing my PLUS unless this gets fixed pretty quick. Beggars belief, it really does. I downgraded my ebay shop sub for not dissimilar reasons.

(Roz) #15

I have added my voice to the discontent and emailed support. Not a happy bunny.

Thank you for posting about this, I was thinking of leaving the forum but have decided to stay as its this type of thing (and the black friday thing) that may wind me up but I need to know …

This is dreadful, my sales here are not good at the moment, (doing OK elsewhere) I was selling great here earlier this year even made it onto the best sellers … now if I get a sale here its because I have got someone to come via FB and even then a couple of international people have asked me to take it out of my shop and go direct…

@sianfolksy @Folksycontent @dougfolksy please can you remove this ad from my items or at least point the link on my items to my shop home page.

Thank you


(Steph Short Supplies) #17

Me too! Can’t believe it! Unable to list properly this week because of picture issues, now this!! Not on especially this time of year! We could have been informed prior to this at least, Sorry I was under the impression they were OUR shops???

(Margaret Jackson) #18

I see what you mean, that’s bizarre. I can well understand you all being so upset!

(Stephanie Guy) #19

I really don’t like this either. It’s hard enough for my customers (many of whom I have sent over here from fb) to find other items of mine from within my listings, without this added distraction taking customers out to gift guides that I hardly ever feature in.

(Susan Bonnar) #20

Agreed - not happy. Sales are dreadful - favouritism of same shops bordering on ridiculous and as the only people that find my shop nowadays have been sent here by me it is outrageous that they should be enticed elsewhere.

It is like someone setting up a stall in the corner of your shop and selling similar products!

(Gill Wootton) #21

Not a happy bunny either . Maybe they hoped we wouldn’t notice it or bother to try it if we did. I wouldn’t have seen in it if it hadn’t been for you helpful buddies. If the gift guides contain all the same things that appear on the front page with alarming regularity then they don’t need any extra help from my potential few and far between customers.
