Between the price of items, shipping costs, and taxes, the amount of money that you pay for things on Etsy can sure add up. Wouldn't it be nice if you could get free shipping on an order? Or get a certain percentage off your order if it costs more than a certain amount? With Etsy coupon codes, you can!
There are three general types of coupon codes for Etsy:
Percentage Discount -- This coupon code type allows you to save a certain percentage on your total order. This does not include shipping costs or taxes.
Free Shipping -- This coupon code type allows you to remove the shipping costs of your order. However, it is sometimes limited to orders from shops in the same country as you.
Fixed Discount -- This coupon code type allows you to save a fixed currency amount, such as $5 U.S., on the total cost of your order (including shipping costs and taxes).
There may be other special conditions for the coupon code, like your total order has to be over a certain amount for the coupon code to work, so be sure to read the terms of the coupon code carefully.
Coupon codes on Etsy are custom-created by shop owners, so a coupon code only works on an item or items from the shop that created the coupon code.
The main avenue of getting Etsy coupon codes is by subscribing to emails from Etsy that contain these coupon codes. To do so:
Go to www.etsy.com in your web browser and log in.
Click on You (i.e. your account) in the top-right corner, and select Account Settings.
Click Emails, and make sure the box beside "Coupons, Promotions, and Recommendations" is checked. (If it isn't, click it to mark it.)
This will occasionally allow you to receive coupon codes in your email from stores as a "thank you" for buying something from them.
Once you find a coupon code, write it down so you can remember what to type in later.
Go to www.etsy.com in your web browser and log in (if you haven't already).
Find some things to buy from the store that you have a coupon for, and add them to your shopping cart (i.e. do steps 2 and 3 of the "How to Buy Items on Etsy" section of our How to Buy on Etsy tutorial). See our How to Search on Etsy tutorial if you need help finding a particular store.
Once you are ready to check out (in step 4 of the "How to Buy Items on Etsy" section of our How to Buy on Etsy tutorial), click Apply Shop Coupon Code under the "How You'll Pay" section of your shopping cart.
Now, type the coupon code that you wrote down into the box that appears, and click Apply.
If you entered the coupon code correctly, you will see that your cost has been discounted. Click Clear if you want to remove your coupon code and use a different one. Otherwise, enjoy your savings!
That's all there is to how to find and use coupon codes for Etsy!
