ComiXology Debuts HTML5 Retailer Digital Storefronts
ComiXology has debuted the HTML5 upgrade to their Retailer Digital Storefront program. Launched in 2011, comiXology’s Retailer Digital Storefronts bridge the print/digital divide, allowing brick and mortar comic book retailers the ability to profit from comiXology, the leading cloud-based digital comics platform.
The rollout of HTML5 compliant Retailer Digital Storefronts allows fans to purchase digital comics from their favorite local comic stores using any mobile device and also the web. With this rollout, fans can now subscribe to their favorite titles and take advantage of comiXology’s frequent digital comic sales all through their local comic store, keeping that close connection between fan and store with each new release.
The Retailer Digital Storefront program enables retailers to sell digital comics with a simple integration into their existing site while tapping into comiXology’s cloud-based digital comics platform. Shops can then market to comic book fans – both current and new customers – to purchase digital comics from their Retailer Digital Storefront with a portion of each purchase going directly to that retailer.
