Announcing Etsy Gift Cards!!!
If you are an Etsy seller based in the US, you may have seen a notice in your account about Etsy Gift Cards coming this fall. Site-wide gift cards have been a long-requested feature for buyers and sellers alike, and we could not be more excited about introducing them for the holidays!
Gift cards will be the perfect present for the Etsy-obsessed shopper in your life, but even more importantly they’ll be a way for us to introduce new buyers to Etsy. Our community of buyers has grown incredibly in the past year, which can be attributed largely to people like you spreading the word and marketing your shops. Gift cards will allow us to be more aggressive in our own marketing efforts by distributing gift cards to partners and creating promotional offers.
So how will Etsy Gift Cards work?
Starting this fall, any member will be able to purchase a gift card with a US credit card. You can email the gift card directly to a friend or print one out to give in person. The gift card credit will be in the form of a code, which buyers will use towards purchases at any shop accepting direct checkout.
I am SERIOUSLY so excited about this, I can't stop bouncing up and down in my seat!! Or maybe that's my afternoon coffee kicking in, either way, get excited people because the holidays are approaching quickly and we all need a bit of handmade love to spread around!
