Using Coupons and Discount Codes

Each shop on Etsy can create custom coupon codes to offer shoppers a discount. You can only redeem a coupon code in the shop that created that specific code.

If you buy more than one item at once from the same shop, the coupon code will apply to the entire order.

If you’re using multi-shop checkout, you can apply multiple coupon codes to your order by entering them one at a time. Occasionally, a seller will offer a simple coupon code that, by coincidence, is used by another shop in your cart.

When this happens, a coupon code you use may apply to multiple shops. Also, the last coupon code you enter may override your previously entered codes. Re-enter each code in a different order until you get the desired result.

The Three Types of Coupon Codes on Etsy

  • Percent Discount: This is a flat percentage off a shopper's entire order (not applied to shipping costs or tax rates).

  • Free Shipping: This discount removes standard shipping costs on the shopper's order. This can be limited to orders shipped within your country.

  • Fixed Dollar Amount Discount: This subtracts a set amount, such as $5 off, from the total cost of an order. Please note that due to the way we have to calculate the discounts associated with coupons, occasionally fixed discounts can be off by a very small amount.

How to Apply a Coupon Code

1.) Once you add an item to your cart, click Apply shop coupon code above Item total 

2.) Enter the coupon code and click Apply

3.) The coupon discount will adjust your order total 

Some sellers also offer Thank You Coupons which are emailed to buyers who purchase from their shop.

You can choose whether or not you receive these emails from sellers by going to You > Account settings > Emails and selecting Coupons, promotions, and recommendations.


If you're having difficulty redeeming a coupon code, please contact the seller to make sure the code is still available.
