NEW FEATURE ANNOUNCEMENT!
Hi everyone. We’ve got a nice new little feature to show you. If you log into Folksy and go to your seller dashboard, you’ll see a new ‘Shop Location’ button in the sidebar. Click that and you can choose whether to display your town, county, town and county or not to display your location at all (it which case it will just say United Kingdom as before).
This is the first step in our plan to create ‘Folksy Local’ groups that you can join as sellers with a view to organising meet-ups, craft fairs and events in your area, and also to help customers find shops in their area and shop more locally if they want to. The next step here is to make the locations clickable links, which then take you to a page displaying all Folksy shops (or possibly products) within that area.
It’s just gone live so there might be a few bugs, eg it might not display the area you’d like it to or it might not accept your postcode as valid. So if you have any problems please do let us know.
