Back to School sale season at Educents


We’re hosting a sitewide back to school sale from July 10th – August 27th! Customers will receive an additional 10% off their purchase at this time with the code “BTS”.


What you should know:


1. Educents is covering the 10% discount during Back to School season, so you will not lose 10%.

2. Back to School sale season is one of our best selling seasons, with the exception of Black Friday/Holidays.

3. Customers must use “BTS” in order to receive the 10% Educents discount

4. Sellers who offer free shipping see higher impressions, page views, and sales.

5. Sellers who offer competitive prices with a lower price point than other sites or sellers who offer an exclusive product to Educents sell more frequently.

6. Cross-promoting your store on social media helps to boost engagement, page views, and long term growth.

Store on Sale


As mentioned above, sellers who offer competitive prices on Educents with a lower price point than other sites sell more frequently.

A quick way to reduce your prices for a limited period of time is to put your store on sale. When you place your store on sale, you can choose a specific time period and % amount off. Sellers who put their store on sale are more likely to appear in emails to customers during their sale period.

While Educents will be offering an additional 10% off with the code BTS, you can maximize sales by putting your store on sale as well.

In fact, we know how valuable this is for our customers and sales, so we’ve created a contest for sellers who schedule a store sale during back to school season.
