What is Folksy?
Folksy was created with the aim of showcasing the work of UK designers and makers. Launched in 2008, we've grown to become the most popular UK site for handmade gifts and supplies.
What can I sell on Folksy?
Folksy is all about handmade and craft supplies. No vintage. Take a moment to read our helpful article on what you are allowed to sell on Folksy.
How much does it cost to sell on Folksy?
It costs just £0.15 for each item in a listing (excluding VAT) and each listing lasts for 120 days (4 months approximately). Unless you sign up for the Folksy Plus account then you can enjoy unlimited free listings. Then, when you make a sale we'll charge a 6% commission. Read more about the Folksy Fees.
I'm not from the UK but I want to join Folksy. Is this OK?
No, sorry. Folksy currently only supports sellers who are living and working in the UK. We had strong feedback that this is what our buyers and sellers wanted. We’re pleased to support UK crafters and showcase the best of British handmade goods.
Can I sell craft supplies?
Yes! You can sell handmade or commercial craft supplies. Supplies are part of our category system so you list them in the same way as other items.
How do I get paid?
You'll need a PayPal account so that buyers can pay you (and so you can pay Folksy your fees). Read our guide on setting up a PayPal account.
How will I know if I've sold something?
You will be e-mailed automatically by Folksy to confirm an order has been placed. This will tell you the buyer’s details and the details of the item they have ordered. You should also receive an email from PayPal to state that the item has been paid for. Read more about order emails.
This all sounds great. But I've got plenty more questions.
We like Fred. It's one of the oldest arts and crafts stores in the UK and yet also a brilliant example of modern, helpful retail. We've teamed up with Fred Aldous to offer Folksy sellers 25% off your first order and then 10% off all future orders with them (so long as you have a Folksy shop).

Folksy is just the simplest and best way for me to show and sell my prints. I started five or so years ago without much idea of how to get my work out there, and having my shop has helped massively. I find the seller interface very easy to use, and getting my shop started was also very quick. I now sell my prints to people all over the world and am proud to be associated with Folksy.
Folksy has been a vibrant and friendly place for me to show and sell my work online, and I enjoy being part of such a genuine quality community of other talented makers and buyers who appreciate handmade.
Folksy is a British business, for British businesses and we so enjoy being a part of it. Through being Folksy's top seller, we've been featured in multiple magazines which has been wonderful. It has introduced us to a raft of people we otherwise might not have met... we rather like it here.
I’ve been selling on Folksy for about two and a half years and have loved every minute! The staff at Folksy HQ work so hard to show us off to the world and I’ve had so much support and advice from them and the brilliant online tutorials. I really feel like part of a lovely big crafting family!
