What is a Retail Warehouse?
First you need to know what a Wholesale Warehouse is.
WHOLESALE WAREHOUSE: A place that you send your comics and they send you 40% of the Retail Price.
That's the industry standard for Wholesale operations in the Book Trade. You have to settle for selling your books at 60% OFF!?!? Not great, but they resell your books to lots of stores, and do a lot of work artists should not be bothered with. It's a trade off. Fallback? Most indie publishers and self publishers can't print the volumes that make this deal work for them.
And this is where a Retail Warehouse comes in.
RETAIL WAREHOUSE: A place that you send your comics and they send you 80% of the Retail Price.
That's right, you just found the best deal in the world for getting your comics out into the public! For only 20% off your cover price, Discordia Comic Shop will handle storage, and shipping of your graphic novels, etc and send your 80% of the cover price to you, as sales occur. Yes, this is a 'consignment' operation. One that DOUBLES your cut of every sale through our web store. And no hidden storage fees!
Who is behind Discordia Comic Shop?
We are the minds behind Discordia Culture Shop, Discordia Merchandising & Discordia Publishing. Discordia Comic Shop exists for this new Retail Warehouse business model. We started this site and shop for the sole reason of helping other self publishers get their work to the world, with little hassle, and way more payout.
After we started publishing graphic novels we found there was no one willing to pay us more than 40% for our books. And that just about everyone who self publishes comics and graphic novels on Kickstarter, etc. starts stacking books to the ceilings of their homes and have to sit of stock they can't move without putting their books up in a Wholesale Warehouse for 60% off.
We wanted better than that for ourselves, and since we could not find that bridge, WE MADE IT.
And now you can cross that bridge too, send us your comics and graphic novels, and get paid more!
