I'm not sure if there is a post about this in 156 pages of posts, but when are the gift cards coming out?

There is no ETA right now.

I've had DC since it started and am really happy with it. It gives my customers options when purchasing/ordering. I have no problem at all with the once a week deposits either. I haven't used it, but my understanding was that I could schedule an earlier deposit if I wanted to. Maybe I'm mistaken with that?

I'm also looking forward to gift cards. Again, another way for a customer to spend money in my shop. If nothing else, it'll get people browsing through a lot more shops. I love Etsy!

was exactly my question....

Is there any way that we can process shipping through the direct payment? That is my big hang up right now...

exactly when will they be available? do you have a launch date yet, something more solid then "late fall".
thanks!

I personally wish that there was just an option for $dollar amount in coupon codes. Not just % or free shipping.

Sometimes I just would like to offer $5 or $10 off to customers. It would be a nice way to offer gift cards for our own shops only too. Not the entire site. The hoops that people have to jump through right now to use a "gift card" from a specific shop is silly.
I tried that once and ended up with way more headaches, because a lot of customers would start choosing 'other' as a form of payment (you have to allow this option according to etsy to offer independent gift cards in your shop) and then I would have to message them and make them aware that they didn't actually pay for their item. I found myself sending paypal invoices left and right. Frustrating.

How come $dollar amount coupon codes are not offered?

Ann .... yes you can have it deposited earlier. I've done it a few times and it goes in the next day.

Amy ..... you can process and ship with direct deposit.
