Cupid is here to deliver an extra special present just in time for Valentine’s Day: the launch of Australian Etsy Gift Cards!
For the person who has everything, the friend that is impossible to buy for, or, let’s be honest, if you’ve run out of time to order a gift from a seller - an Etsy Gift Card will save the day.
Give your loved ones the gift of choice this Valentine’s Day, and ensure that their present is something they will adore.
How do I get my hands on them?
Gift cards can be purchased online at etsy.com/giftcards where you will be directed to choose from one of fun designs. You can choose to email your gift card to a friend for instant gift-giving, or print one out to pop inside your Valentine’s card and give in person.
You will then receive a confirmation email once you have completed your transaction. You can give $25, $50, $100 or $250.
How do I redeem an Etsy gift card?
If you choose to send your gift card via email, an email will be sent to your loved one informing them of the good news. From there they can simply click “Redeem Now” to add the Etsy gift card balance to their account. If you have given the printed card, it can be redeemed by visiting etsy.com/redeem, and typing in the redemption code. All that’s left to do then is to go shopping and apply the balance upon check out.
How do I accept Etsy Gift Cards in my shop?
You will need to have direct checkout enabled in order to accept gift cards. Why? Etsy gift cards rely on our direct checkout feature and the infrastructure we provide through our payments system.
If you are a seller already enrolled in direct checkout, you are ready to go — there’s nothing additional you need to do to accept Etsy Gift Cards in your shop, and you can process or refund these orders like you would any other direct checkout order. You’ll be able to tell if someone is using an Etsy gift card from your emails and receipts.
If you haven’t signed up for direct checkout, we encourage you to do so. It’s the quick and easy way for shoppers to pay for items with their credit card directly through Etsy, and sellers love providing the option to their customers.
No more excuses for not having gift ideas! Purchase an Etsy Gift Card, take the difficult decisions out of your hands and simply let them choose.
