Welcome to Mustache Mayhem Comics 2.0! I’ve put in a ton of work over the past few weeks getting the site all set up and ready to go. Hopefully you like the changes and can find things even easier than before.
So what’s new?
Faster load times!
The first thing you will notice is that the site loads much faster. The site is now being powered by Shopify and Shopify’s CDN is no joke. Sorry, Wix, but you were just a bit too slow to load.
More Payment Options!
By switching the site to Shopify, I now have the ability to utilize the robust Shopify Payments platform. This means I can accept payments from just about anything - credit card, PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc. Shopify Payments also offers an easy pay system allowing you to pay over time. Want to break up a big payment? No problem. There’s an option for that.
Cheaper Shipping! Hoo-ray!
Shopify offers great shipping discounts for USPS that Wix.com just couldn’t compete with. It killed me to see customers buy 3 or 4 comics and have to pay roughly $15 for shipping. Ugh. The days of over priced shipping are hopefully behind us. Keep in mind that I am in South Carolina, so if you’re over on the west coast, shipping can still be pricey.
A quick note on shipping - every comic I mail out is bagged and boarded, then bubble wrapped and placed into a Gemini Comic Mailer, because I’m not a savage.
Exploring the new site is much easier with the improved filtering options, which quickly organize comics by publisher and title. There is also an option to sort alphabetically or by price.
One of the best things about Shopify is the ability to quickly organize collections using tags. The same comic may be added to multiple collections, making it easier to find from different searches. For instance a comic like Amazing Spider-Man #316 will be available in the Marvel, Spider-Man, and Todd McFarlane collections. You can browse all of the collections here:
