What are gift card expiration dates and policies? 

  • You may be required to redeem an Etsy credit by a certain date, depending on the specific terms and conditions of the relevant special offer or promotion. If you don’t redeem your Etsy credit before that date, your Etsy credit may expire.
  • Etsy gift cards issued in GBP, AUD, and EUR expire 48 months from the date the Etsy gift card is purchased. The expiration date for each Etsy gift card is included in the confirmation email.

How do I buy something with an Etsy gift card or Etsy credit balance?

To buy an item with your Etsy gift card or credit:

  1. Once you’ve redeemed your gift card or credit, add an eligible item to your cart.
  2. Under How you'll pay, select the checkbox next to Apply gift card or Etsy credit balance. If your balance doesn’t cover your entire order, you can pay the remaining balance with your credit card or PayPal, depending on the seller’s settings. Apple Pay or Google Pay can’t be used in combination with your balance, since those payment methods take you to a checkout experience off of Etsy.
  3. Go to Proceed to checkout and select a shipping address.
  4. After reviewing your order details, select Submit order. Your remaining gift card or credit balance will appear at the top of the site.

What do I do if my code isn’t working?

If you see an error that says your gift card or credit has already been redeemed, you don’t need to enter your redeem code again.

If your balance isn’t being applied during checkout:

  1. Check that the shop you’re ordering from accepts Etsy gift cards and credits.
  2. If they do accept Etsy gift cards and credits, return to your cart.
  3. Under How you'll pay, select the checkbox next to Apply gift card or Etsy credit balance.
