comiXology has announced a Digital Storefront Affiliate program that will allow retailers to sell digital comics by integrating comiXology’s reader and affiliate store into their Websites. The store and reader will be branded to the specific store and hosted at no cost by comiXology.
Comics sold through the retailers’ Websites will be readable not only on the Web, but also on Apple and Android mobile devices.
“Comic retailers have built and nurtured the local communities that support the comics business, and it’s important that those retailers have a way to participate in and profit from the digital comics revolution,” comiXology CTO John Roberts said.
Roberts, comiXology CEO David Steinberger, and ICv2 CEO Milton Griepp (ICv2 announced a sales, marketing and customer service relationship with comiXology, see “comiXology Teams with ICv2”) will demo the Digital Storefront Affiliate program at the upcoming ComicsPro meeting in Dallas (see “ComicsPro Meeting in Dallas”).
