Vault Creates a Comic Pre-Order Alternative, BookIt
Vault Comics announced BookIt, a unique new comic book preorder system designed for fans and retailers alike. BookIt allows readers to preorder their favorite Vault titles and have them delivered to their local comic shop, at no additional charge to the reader or retailer.
To place a preorder, readers visit www.preorder.vaultcomics.com, where they select their titles for preorder. Next, the reader selects the closest local comic book shop where they would like their books delivered. BookIt then notifies the chosen comic shop of the preorders, allowing retailers know how many copies of each title to order and which customers ordered them. The best part is, the BookIt service is completely free to use for both readers and retailers.
BookIt launches with 20 retailers spread across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
For readers unable to find a participating retailer close to them, BookIt allows for readers to submit a request that their local shop be added. Retailers interested in participating can also sign up through the website. BookIt is completely free to join and free to use, and always will be.
