First step would be to have a good rootle around the Folksy blog and their advisory pages, about how to sell on Folksy etc. That’ll be the most reliable way to get up to date with how the site runs now.

I personally wouldn’t think twice about the shop URL being different from the name you use in the banner…I doubt I’d even notice! So for me, I’d reopen your old shop and keep all the stats and feedback you have up to now. I wouldn’t say it was worth losing all that just for the sake of a name.

I’d reopen your old shop too and keep your 130 sales.
I came back to Folksy a few years ago after being away for a while. I started a new shop as I’d deleted my old shop when I left.
It’s different to Etsy and not as user friendly when it comes to running your shop but it’s UK which I wanted.

You can just ask Folksy Support to change your shop URL. Welcome Back too :slight_smile:
