Hi all. We wanted to let you know that on 27th June the cost of the Monthly Folksy Plus Account will increase to £7.50 a month for new subscribers.
Fees for existing monthly Folksy Plus Account users will remain the same.
We are also bringing back our Annual Plus Account for all Folksy sellers.
The new fees will be:
- Monthly Plus Account: £7.50
- Annual Plus Account: £75 per year (£15 discount or 2 months free vs monthly)
So if you want to sign up to our monthly Folksy Plus Account at the existing price, do it before 27th June.
This blog post explains why we’re making the changes and has more info but if you have any questions, please do ask. https://blog.folksy.com/2022/06/13/plus-account-fee-increase-new-sellers
Thank you Camilla. @folksycontent
I know a lot of people will moan but I personally still say what excellent value it is for money…x
I am a Basic Folksy member, and find that this level of membership fits my needs, so I am relieved that there is no increase in the costs for this. I hope this continues to be the case as ‘unlimited listings’ which is the main advantage for Folksy Plus members as far as I can see, is not an advantage for my way of working which is slow, with a small output - I don’t want to be a ceramics factory. Additionally the limit of five images also suits my work. So Basic is great for me, and I do hope it continues to be available. Basic membership is also a great way of encouraging new people to sign up, as they can dip a toe in the water and assess whether Folksy is for them. All in all, the options offered by Folksy are great value in my opinion, and I have always found the support excellent. Long may it continue.
@Bearlescent Yes it’s the flexibility of membership options which is so good! Different strokes for different folks…
I agree with Brenda @teabreaks, it’s still great value for unlimited listing. There’s things we all want from folksy, more advertising etc and that all costs money.
Hiya Camilla @folksycontent I just wanted to say that it’s lovely to see all your faces on the Folksy Sellers email today and the blog with the write ups
Hi Camilla @folksycontent - I pay for my Folksy Plus account annually at the moment. Will this fee stay as it is at the moment or will it increase to the £75?
I asked this in the captains group and have been told that yes if you are on the old legacy annual plus account you get to keep it as it is.
Oh brilliant - thanks Sasha!
Excellent news, as it’s excellent value!
A nice little “thank you” to existing sellers, appreciated
Sorry if I’m being dense, but this does not mention, sellers who have always paid annually up to now. Are we staying at the same fees, or are we being increased to £75? You only mention the "new " annual plus account, but my current annual plus account is paid up until the end of July… @folksycontent
It does say:
Annual Folksy Plus Account:
Sellers now have the option to join our Annual Folksy Plus account. This costs £75 (a £15 reduction on our monthly plan over the same period) and is charged once a year.
Legacy Annual Account
Fees will remain the same for sellers on our legacy annual accounts.
Hope that helps.
@QuiltingDemon Yes, as Carol says, that’s the legacy annual account where everything is remaining the same.
It’s only for new accounts where the price is increasing, if you’ve already got a Plus account, the price will stay the same.
I agree…loyalty pays off…I am glad to have been here for 11 years x
Thank you! I was getting confused!
What is the legacy annual account?
Personally I don’t mind paying more if Folksy works at getting out there more with expansion and media exposure.
