Hope In A Blog Gmarket Tutorial 6 : Winning Coupons using gstamps & How to win Gstamps

  • You can also win coupons via Gstamps here


1) Gstamps Indicator

  • Here is where the amount of Gstamps you have is indicated

2) Exchange Discount Coupons with your Gstamps

  • Here you can exchange your Gstamps with coupons. More stamps are needed to exchange in contrast to ‘Part 3 – Win Discount Coupons with your Gstamps’ because it is guaranteed that you will win those coupons.

3) Win Discount Coupons with your Gstamps

  • Here you can use your Gstamps to win coupons. These coupons are by chance – like a lucky draw – therefore you need only a few coupons here in contrast to ‘Part 2 – Exchange Discount Coupons with your Gstamps’.

How to obtain Gstamps?

Reminder : PLEASE do not use FIREFOX browser. Stick to Google Chrome or Internet Explorer

Gstamps can be obtained in 3 ways :

1) Leaving feedback on items bought

  • Once you have placed your order and received it, go to ‘My Gmarket’ –> ‘Overseas Order’

  • Click on ‘Item Received Button’


  • Click on OK.


  • Leave your feedback then click on ‘Confirm’ – will be updated with screen capture once we have it. Once done, you will receive 1 Gstamp and also 100 mileage.


  • If you order the same from item from the same page ( as some pages gives you different options ) , you can only leave 1 feedback for that item. Therefore even if you order 10 items but different options from the same page, you only leave 1 feedback.

  • Remember that there is a limit to this – therefore once you receive your items, click directly on ‘Item Received’ and leave your feedback to receive 1 Gstamp and 100 mileage.



2) Winning Gstamps by Lucky Draw

  • Some events only on the Korean site can you win Gstamps through lucky draw. One example can be found here


3) By Buying Items

  • Some sellers offer Gstamps as rewards when you buy items from them. For example :

Hope In A Blog Gmarket Tutorial 4 : Applying Discount Coupons

Filed under: Gmarket Tutorial — Hope In A Blog @ 2:29 pm
Tags: ,



Reminder : Please use Internet Explorer. It really is the best when applying coupons. With other browsers, we have experience lots of problems – some coupons can’t be applied etc, so to benefit the most from your coupons, use Internet explorer


  • This is the most important part – getting discounts and applying coupons. Click on the ‘Coupon Box’ button.




  • A coupon box will appear :





There a 4 types of coupons :



1) Delivery Fee Coupons

  • These coupons can only be applied with items that charges a delivery fee. They will deduct 2,500wons and pay for your delivery fee. However, different delivery coupons have different conditions. Some you will have to spend 5,000 / 10,000 in order to apply the free delivery coupon. Delivery coupons can also be applied on ‘Fee Charged’ items.



There is also two tricks to this :


  • There are times when the condition is met for Free Delivery ( for example : you have purchase 20,000 from the seller therefore he doesn’t charge the delivery fee ), you can still apply the Free Delivery coupon. Therefore you have an additional bonus 2,500won discount Open-mouthed smile



  • You can apply the delivery free coupons multiple times from the same seller, which means you have 5,000won discount Open-mouthed smile For example below – we applied two delivery coupons with the same seller therefore a 2500 + 2500 = 5000wons discount :







Free delivery coupons can be won in two ways :


a) Through Events


  • When you see something like this (picture below) click on it. For example you can win one here :






b) Through VIP Lucky Draw


  • If you are a VIP customer, you can win Free Delivery coupons here :







2) Normal Coupons

  • Normal coupons can be applied if met with condition so check the conditions before applying the coupon. They can be won  on the Korean Gmarket Events such as this



3) Super Coupons


  • Super coupons can be applied on top of normal coupons so you can get even more discount. An example below :






4 ) Additional Discount For Each Item


  • Some sellers do give additional discount if you purchase more than 2 items from them. If applied, you are not able to apply the normal coupons. However, these discounts are usually very little , so if you have a normal coupon that gives you a larger discount, ‘Untick’ the ‘Discount for each item’ then apply your normal coupons. Example below :

Hope in a blog gmarket tutorial 3 : Adding Items to cart and Placing an order


  • It is advisable to use Google Chrome for this as Google Chrome translates the whole page to English



  • Sometimes the page is automatically translated by Google Translate, sometimes it is not. If it is not, just copy and paste the link of the whole page, then go to and paste the link there. Choose From Korean To English then click on Translate






  • A page like this will appear :






1) Delivery Fee




There are 3 types :



  • Free – there is no need to pay any delivery fee



The other 2 types of Delivery Fee are only charged once, no matter how many items you purchase from the seller, you are only charged 2,500 once :



  • Free On Condition – click on the arrow after ‘Free On Condition’ to check it’s condition. Usually the delivery fee is waived if you have spend a certain amount from that seller’s shop




  • Fee Charged – delivery fee is charged no matter what. Delivery fee varies from 2,200wons – 3,000wons. Delivery fee is the fees paid to send the items from the seller’s shop to the Gmarket warehouse ( and not Gmarket’s warehouse to your place ). If this happens, click on ‘Pay 2,500 Once Order’ as this is the only options available for International customers. The other option ‘Payment on Delivery’ is only available for Korean customers. Example below :








2) Select Options


  • Sometimes there are options that we are able to select. Use Google Chrome for this, so that the options can also be translated.






Example above :


a) This is a set of 2 creams and 1 essence. They are also giving away either a Free mask or a Free Mist . At ‘Required Optional’ – choose either the free mist or mask.



b) This seller also allows you to add other stuff to your order. They are usually cheaper when bought together with other items compared than bought alone. If you are not interested just choose ‘None’. If not, click on your choice. The additional price of the additional items are shown on the side.




  • However there are times where there are different options in one page , especially if you are buying samples of Whoo, Sulwhasoo, etc. For example :







  • In this picture above, the average cost of all the samples cost 4,000 korean wons. Unless stated, each item cost 4,000wons. However there are some items that will be more expensive or cheaper than 5,000wons. For example, the OHUI ULTRA MOIST ESSENCE costs only 3,000wons, therefore there is a –1000 wons beside the option.



3) International Shipping





  • Double check if International Shipping is Unavailable or Available



Placing An Order


  • When you are paying for your order, you are paying the ESTIMATED shipping fee.

  • If your order is overweight, you would have to pay for the additional fees using your Cash Balance OR Gcash.

  • If your order is underweight , Gmarket will cash in the remaining money into your Cash Balance. They will not reimburse the money into your Paypal or Credit card. ( We think this purpose is that customers will always come back and buy things to try to use up all their cash balance )

  • Click on Place an Order and you will be directed here :


  • Fill in the details and also if you have any remarks to the sellers

  • For sender’s name , you can fill in anybody’s name, even your own. This way it will probably be easier and less noticeable when it reaches the customs.

  • Type the products you are searching for on the search bar. It is advisable to type it in Korean ( look for the Korean names of the brand ).



  • Once you click on search on the main page, the results page will appear ( featured in picture below ). If you want to search for another item, do not enter it under the Keyword Search – they usually give you the same result, but instead type it under the Blue Bar ( you can see all these in the photo below ).



  • You can also click on the sections to narrow down search results . You can also narrow down results by price range – best selling – date listed – etc ( highligted in photo below )



  • It is also advisable to click on ALL –> OVERSEAS SHIPPING on search results so that only items that are open for International Shipping are shown.






  • If you have no idea where to start, a good idea is going through the sections on Gmarket ( Beauty, Electronics, etc) by clicking on ALL CATEGORIES. Gmarket also features the ‘hot-stuff’ of each section on the page so you can scroll it if you don’t have any idea where to start.









  • For example : We clicked on ALL CATEGORIES, then on WOMEN’S APPAREL. You will be lead to a page like this ( below ) :



  • Then narrow down search results by clicking on the different options of WOMEN’S APPAREL.
