Etsy lets shop owners create custom coupon codes to offer special discounts, and now it is giving sellers the ability to offer free-shipping coupons. By default, free-shipping coupons are valid for any shipping address, and sellers can choose to limit a free shipping coupon to domestic shipping addresses only.

Etsy began rolling out the feature to a small percentage of shops late last week and plans to ramp it up to all sellers over the coming week.
