Hope In A Blog Gmarket Tutorial 5 : Where To Win Gmarket Discount Coupons ?



Recap for the pages you can win Coupons this week :



Now that i am familiar with Gmarket, let me share with you guys all the little stuff that one normally wouldn’t find on Gmarket.

There is only one page for us to win coupons for international users , which is here and here.

These two coupons are Super Coupons which means they can be used on top of the normal coupons, therefore you can apply those normal coupons you win from changing your Gstamps etc.


However, go to the Korean page and there are lots of coupons all around waiting to be won!

But how do u win extra coupons from the Korean site of Gmarket without knowing Korean? Click here to find out more….

For example, to all my beauty-lovers out there , here is two links for u to win some extra coupons :


Update : These coupons do work from time to time, so make sure you click on them to try if it works.

1) Click here!

On this site, just click on the ones circled in red. (Photo below)

The ones circled in blue are only valid for some form of payment, so if you are using Paypal, the 10% and 20% coupons will not work, but the ones circled in blue will work. You can also win Gstamps by clicking on the Gstamp logo, and beside the Gstamp logo, you can win ‘Free Delivery Coupons’. These free delivery coupons can be used on items where sellers  charge a delivery fee. Therefore, if you buy an item in which the seller charges a delivery fee ( usually from 2500-3000 korean wons ), you can use this coupon and 2500 korean wons will be deducted!

Beside the free delivery coupon logo is the 10,000 korean won logo! If you’ve purchased at least 5 items from the beauty category during that month, can are eligible to enter the lucky draw. I’ve won twice for this so try it out ! 🙂


2) Click here!

Click the ones circled in blue to win 1,000 and 2,000 won coupons.


3) Click here!


4) Click here! ( Win coupons from various brands ! )


Then complete a survey : this is an english translation of the survey : ( make sure you are using Internet Explorer for this and enable pop-ups )


After submitting you will be directed to a new page which is : this, then click on which brand you are interested in and you will be entering a lucky draw to see if you have won a discount for that particular brand. You can click as many brands as you want but you are only allowed to do the survey once, so make sure that you click on all the brands that you are interested in at one goal !


5) Click HERE !


There are also lots of other coupons to be won, you just have to click and try in these places where i have drawn arrows and you will find lots of coupons lying around to be won. I have noticed that there are lots of coupons for fashion items.


7) Click HERE

Win more coupons here! Open-mouthed smile

Now going on to more serious issues, there are lots of things that i am not happy about the site.

This is how i would change Gmarket :

1) Introduce more payment methods

2) Extra shipping charges should be refunded via the payment method that was used. So if you paid via PayPal, the extra shipping charges should be refunded via your paypal account. I find the whole Gbalance and Gcash very ridiculous and inconvenient especially for international users.

3) If Gmarket can’t refund us our extra shipping method via Paypal or Credit Cards, they should at least allow us to use our Gbalance and then let us top up the remaining amount to be paid via PayPal or Credit Card. It is really ridiculous that we are only allowed to used our GBalance if it is under the total amount of items bought.

4) I know many many many of my friends which have not bothered to buy from Gmarket simply because the site is not user friendly and not international user friendly. Yes, i know it’s a site catered for Koreans, but do they know how much more revenue can be generated if they opened up to the world ???

5) Sellers should list their items or brands at least in English for the convenience of buyers.

6) Gmarket should introduce more shipping methods. EMS is pricey and in France, the service is just terrible and a pain in the ass to deal with. They should work something out with Korea Post to offer a more economical shipping rate and give users more options

7) There is simply not enough coupons/freebies for international users. Look at the Korean page and the international page. It is simply very obvious they do not care much for International Users at the moment and not giving us much love.

8) Hire more native English Speakers – i’m sure many of you have had many problems with this. Sometimes they simply do not get the question making communication very hard.

9) Unlike Sasa.com, Cosmo-de.com, and Adambeauty.com and Ebay.com , Gmarket does not mark down the prices declared on the EMS package which makes a lot of us in Europe avoid ordering from Gmarket because we simply have to pay higher much more.  Already we have to pay 20% of the total amount, and on top of that, we have to pay an additional 21 euros to EMS for administration charges. For example, my previous package was charged 14 euros for taxes, and i was charged 21 euros from EMS for administration charges. The administration charges was even more expensive than the taxes paid. Therefore, it would be much better off ordering elsewhere and much cheaper. Gmarket is always the last resort for us, European users.

10) There is a 5-day limit in which we can leave our feedback and get Gstamps from it, but the 5-day limit is ridiculous. Of course if you live in Korea, the 5-day limit would be ideal. But if you live elsewhere, the 5-day limit is ridiculous. For us in Europe, it takes about 3-4 days for shipping, plus the weekend, 6 days, plus the time spend in customs +2 days, declaring package + 2 days, delivery +2/3 days = more than 5 days.

11) At night, it is almost impossible to surf G-market. The site is SOOOO Slow and LAGGY !

  1. i have bad experience with one seller
    i ask them ,do u have this items in yr stock
    they said,i always ask about the items that they don’t have,it’s very ridiculous coz they list the items in their shop,if they don’t have the items why they didn’t delete it out
    i just ask for make sure
    i told them,if u don’t want to answer the customer’s question,go home!!!

    I’m so confuse , why some seller didn’t delete the items that they don’t have in their stock ,when i order they cancel it
    it waste of my time and my money coz
    the refund would be in PayPal that will be difference in exchange rate

    great to see u advice about coupon
    I’m shopping in gmarket about 2yrs but now I’m still not familiar with them -*-
    nice to meet u
    i’m from bangkok ,thailand

  2. yes, that always happens to me on gmarket too.. a lot of items are out of stock and are still listed, and what’s worst is that sellers do not respond when u buy their item that is out of stock. so us buyers assume that there is still stock and wait and wait and wait, until we get fed up and email gmarket to ask whats happening, only then they tell us the item is out of stock.
