It takes much more time and expense to find new buyers than it does to cultivating repeat business from your current buyers. Get repeat sales from your buyers by offering them perks such as free shipping, or discounts off price.

An Etsy shop feature allows you create discount coupon codes. In your Etsy store click on Your Shop in the top menu, then go to Promote and then Coupon Codes and select options to generate coupons.

With your Etsy shop discount codes you can offer 3 options–free shipping, a percentage discount or a fix price discount–and set a date when these discounts will expire.
