Have you heard the buzz? Etsy Gift Cards are coming soon! For those regular Etsians, you already know that Etsy rolled out direct checkout a few months ago.
According to the Etsy blog, “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. ” You can read more about it here.
I do think this is a great functionality to add to the website, particularly with the holiday season coming up. Are you a regular Etsy shopper? What do you think about direct checkout and the soon to be here gift cards?
