Comicsy is a marketplace for indie comic creators to sell their wares. On this site you will find a whole host of comics and comic related goodies, such as orginal artwork, posters, graphic novels and anything, well…Comicsy.
Each item on Comicsy is available to purchase, either from one of our sellers, or from one of the sites that we link to. At Comicsy we don’t sell all items, sometimes we just point you in the right direction. This is how it works:
The main Comicsy site (that’s where you are now) displays all the products listed by our sellers. You can browse through these products using the handy menu at the top of every page, or by searching Comicsy for a product in the search bar at the top. Once you’ve found an item you would like to purchase, simply click on the item and you will be taken to that product’s information page. You will now find yourself in the Comicsy Shop of the product’s owner – you will have noticed that the site has changed to reflect the Comicsy Shop you are in. You can now browse or search in that specific shop using the menu on the left hand side of the screen. Don’t worry, you can still see the Comicsy bar at the top of the page should you wish to do a whole site search again.
For every product on our site, a seller will have chosen one of the following options, to allow you, the buyer, to purchase an item:
- By Mail: When you buy an item on Comicsy, you buy directly from one of our many comic sellers. Simply add items to your cart using the ‘Add to Cart’ button found on every product page. When you’re ready to finalise your sale, view your shopping cart* using the button in the top left of the screen, then click ‘Checkout’. Complete your order and your goods will be shipped directly to you by the seller.
- Digital Download: These items are purchased by adding them to your shopping cart*. When purchasing a digital download, upon completion of the sale, the seller will email you a copy of your digital download. These are ideal for those who enjoy reading on a tablet.
- Outbound Link: Many of our sellers have already listed their product on other major websites, such as Lulu or Etsy, or have spent time setting up their own website to sell their goods. When you click ‘Buy Now’ a new window will open taking you directly to their product on the outbound site. You can purchase the item directly from that site.
*Please Note: Due to Paypal restrictions you can only include items in your shopping cart from up to 10 different sellers at one time.
To buy something you don’t need to register with us but, if you do sign up, you will be able to view your order history, manage your orders, rate a product, and be able to leave comments on the item. Guest buyers (users who do not register or sign in to make their purchase) are not able to leave comments for their orders.
