WHERE IS THE STICKER SHOP?
During our soft launch, you'll be able to access the Sticker Shop on our desktop, browser, Android and iOS client.
If you're on the mobile app and you want to start growing your sticker collection, press on the emoji symbol (that looks like a smiley face) in the chat/text box and you’ll see the Emoji, Gif and Sticker tab appear.
Press on the Stickers Tab and the press on the shop icon bottom right hand to start viewing all the available sticker packs.
For desktop and browser users, click on the sticker symbol (in between the gif and emoji icon) in your message bar.
Once clicked, you can then click on the shop icon in the bottom left hand corner to start viewing all the available sticker packs.
HOW TO VIEW STICKER PACKS
When you're in the Sticker Shop menu, you'll be able to scroll through this menu and view all the available sticker packs for purchase.
You'll only be shown a sample of the stickers in the pack, but if you're curious about what other stickers are included, press the View All button to see the full pack.
How Long Will a Sticker Pack Be Available for Purchase?
The Sticker Shop will continuously rotate in and out new sticker packs over time so that there’s always a new variety of ways to express yourself with different characters and expressions in Discord.
To make sure you’re getting the sticker packs you want before they rotate out of the shop, you can see how long the stickers will be in the Sticker Shop in the time stamp right beside the title of the sticker pack.
When you hover over the time stamp, you’ll also see a warning that the stickers are available for purchase for a limited time.
Note: Once these stickers are purchased, they will stay in your sticker inventory permanently.
Nitro and Stickers
If you're a Nitro subscriber, then you can enjoy some cool sticker perks as well. There are some sticker packs that are a part of our Nitro subscription perks (indicated by the Nitro symbol on the sticker pack), and you'll be able to see the stickers you can claim based on the green button that says "Free".
For $4.99 Nitro Classic Subscribers:
With your subscription, you can claim the What's Up Wumpus sticker pack and add it to your inventory for the lifetime of your account.
For $9.99 Nitro Subscribers:
With your subscription, you can 1) add the What's Up Wumpus sticker pack to your inventory for life, and 2) you'll be able to access the Wumpus Nitro Elite pack for as long as you're actively subscribed.
Note: If you're an active $9.99 Nitro subscriber, you’ll also get a 33% discount whenever you purchase a Sticker Pack.
HOW TO BUY/REDEEM A STICKER PACK
Once you've decided which sticker pack you want, press on the purchase buttons right beside the title of the sticker pack of your choice.
If you’d like to simultaneously sign up for Nitro and get a discount, you can directly press the green button!
From there, you'll need to fill in your payment information (or select a saved payment method) and double check that you agree to Discord Terms of Service.
Lastly, all you need to do is press the "Purchase" button to add the sticker pack to your inventory and start using them in chat.
Note: We are unable to provide refunds or exchanges for sticker purchases except where required by law. So make sure you're sure before buying your sticker pack.

HOW TO SEND/USE STICKERS IN CHAT
Now that you've acquired your Sticker Pack, you can start sending stickers in your servers and DMs.
If you're on the mobile app, press on the emoji symbol once more to bring up the Stickers tab
From this menu, you can:
- Easily view your most frequently used stickers
- Switch between sticker packs by selecting the specific Sticker Pack logo in the bottom bar
- Search for a specific emotion/expression by typing directing in the search bar (where it says "Find the perfect sticker")!
Once you’ve found the sticker you want to use, tap on the sticker, and your sticker will now directly send in chat.
For desktop and browser users, click on the sticker symbol in your message bar, and you'll be able to directly see your Sticker Inventory.
Similar to the mobile app,
- You can easily view your most frequently used stickers
- You can quickly switch between sticker packs by selecting the specific Sticker Pack logo in the left side bar
- You'll be able to search for a specific emotion/expression by typing directing in the search bar
From this menu, you now can click on the sticker, and your sticker will now directly send in chat.
Note: Stickers are standalone messages - that means you can't send any text or other media along with your sticker.
If you ever want to modify or disable sticker animations for your app, you can head to your User Settings, then press the Text & Images tab (in the left side bar on the desktop/browser client).
When you scroll down, you’ll see a section dedicated to sticker controls when they animate. From here, you can select whether you’d like stickers to:
- Always animate
- Animate on interactions
- Never animate
To help reveal stickers you may want to use to express yourself, we have a Sticker Suggestion feature that will automatically suggest relevant stickers as you are typing your message.
When you see a Sticker Suggestion appear above the stickers icon, you can directly press the Up arrow on your keyboard to select the sticker, and then press Enter to send that sticker in chat.
If you’d like to ignore the Sticker Suggestion, you can press ESC to close the Sticker Suggestion window!
On the other hand, if you’d like to navigate to the beginning of your message while the Sticker Suggestion window is active, hold Control + Up arrow (Windows) or Command + Up arrow (Mac) and your chat cursor will automatically move to the front!
How to Disable Sticker Suggestions
If you would like to disable this feature, you can do so by following these steps below:
- Heading into your User Settings by pressing the cog icon in the bottom left hand corner,
- Then clicking on the Text and Images tab (in the left side menu),
- When you scroll down, you'll then see an option to disable the Sticker Suggestions option. Just make sure to move the slider in this menu!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If I purchase a sticker pack, will it stay with my account forever or is this subscription based?
A: Once you buy a sticker pack, that pack will be available for the lifetime of your account. It's important to note:
- The Wumpus Nitro Elite sticker pack is only accessible while you have a current $9.99 Nitro subscription.
- If your account is deleted, then you lose access to the sticker packs you've purchased.

What if I’m locked out of my account - do I get a refund for my stickers?
A: No, we do not offer refunds on purchases if you're unable to access your account.
Sticker Rotation Questions
Will these limited-time stickers come back into the shop in the future?
A: There's no guarantee that the sticker pack will become available for purchase again in the future. However, you can share your suggestion to our feedback page so others can vote up the request to bring back a specific pack in the future.
Why do some packs rotate and others don't?
A: Packs will rotate out because we want to make sure that there’s a consistent flow of new content, giving you access to new expressions, characters and scenes! We also want to make sure content is relevant to outside of Discord (summer stickers in summer, for example), so packs are removed to make space for new ones.
Sticker Purchase and Refund Questions
Why did I pay more than $1.99 or $2.99 for my purchase?
A: The final charge may include additional taxes and fees due to your region or conversion rates from your bank/credit card.
What is the refund policy for stickers?
A: We are unable to provide refunds or exchanges for sticker purchases except where required by law.
Can I gift stickers?
A: Unfortunately you aren’t able to gift sticker packs right now, but our team is working to add it in soon.
Why isn't my sticker moving/animating?
A: All stickers should animate by default when sent in a conversation, in the "View All" section of the sticker shop, and in your sticker inventory if your sticker drawer is set to the smallest size!
If your stickers aren't animating in these places, you can check User Settings > Text & Images > Stickers. Make sure this setting is set to your preference! If your stickers still aren't moving, let us know at dis.gd/support.
Why isn't my sticker showing up?
A: If you're currently on Firefox, try clearing your cache and cookies from your browsing data following the steps in this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-cookies-and-site-data-firefox
If you are on another client and your stickers still aren't showing up, let us know at dis.gd/support!
Sticker Usage and Copyright Questions
What does Discord think about ripping stickers? Will I be banned from Discord if I turn stickers content into custom emojis?
A: Ripping stickers into custom emoji or GIFs is a violation of our copyright and we ask that you don't do this.
Sticker Creation Questions
Can I make my own stickers?
A: Sticker creation is not available at this point in time, but share your feedback to our feedback page and we can forward this suggestion to our team to add this!
