Art Fire Coupon/Gift Certificate System

ArtFire Launches Coupon Codes for Sellers in Time for the Fourth Quarter

Codes for free shipping, $ off, % off and free gift can be tweeted and placed on blogs with widgets

Tucson, AZ – As the holiday shopping season approaches, ArtFire has rolled out their new coupon code system, the first ever offered by a handmade venue. This system allows sellers to create customized special deals and promotions so for buyers and distribute them far and wide via twitter, email and blog widgets. ArtFire’s coupon codes are fully customizable, so the seller has complete control over the type of promotion they’d like to run. With this feature, sellers can do everything from setting a percentage or dollar amount off an order to arranging a free gift with select purchase. They can also build gift certificates for their storefront using the coupon code system, which will be especially useful come the holidays. ArtFire members can track the popularity of their coupon codes using statistical information in the coupon management panel to better improve their business.

"ArtFire couldn't let members go into the fourth quarter without this powerful new feature,” said John Jacobs, CEO of “We know that ArtFire members will greatly benefit from coupon codes and gift certificates and we are excited to roll them out for the community."

“Handmade sellers have been asking for coupon codes for a long time,” said Tony Ford, COO of “No other handmade venue has built a tool as robust and customizable as this, and we know our artisans will use it to its fullest capabilities.”

More about ArtFire is the fastest growing venue in the handmade industry, with more than 30,000 individual sellers and storefronts around the world. Since its launch in September of 2008, ArtFire has been continuously innovating new features to better serve their members. Such features include fully customizable Fusion Studios, a miniature and moveable virtual storefront known as Rapid Cart, The Facebook Kiosk, which allows shoppers to purchase an artisan’s items right off their Facebook page, and now coupon codes, allowing members to set the terms of their own sales and success.

This is fantastic! Better and better. Even more incentive now to list more items on Artfire vs. the other venues. I'm very pleased!!

I think I'll offer a Facebook discount, since I have the kiosk up now on my facebook fan page, just to see if that will work. My older expiring items on Etsy will be moved over to Artfire just to mix things up as well.

I really think that Artfire is moving in the right direction (and fast too!).

This is the kind of tools that sellers have been asking for on other sites for a very long time, and Artfire has done it again.

I'm really liking Artfire more and more :)

Thanks for spreading the word on this great new feature Tim :)

Just stopped back to say that Artfire looks amazing. I like that your customer doesn't have to sign up to purchase.

Thanks again for the information.
