Hi. My comic guy is probably going to stop subscriptions. I pay for each previous month's comics, on the 3rd of the following month. He is going to get me Oct.'s comics, but I'm going to have trouble getting ALL comics starting this coming Wed. Is there anyone that can help me? I get a lot of titles and am an IMMEDIATE payer on the 3rd of every month, but if I don't find someone, I'm going to miss EVERYTHING from Nov. Can anyone help me? I can't afford to spend full cover price each week of Nov. I've already got to pay for ALL Oct. issues. I'm a GREAT buyer and pay on time by paypal, but cannot do so until the month ends completely, and the 3rd comes. Please let me know if anyone can help and try and work with me on this. Wed. is fast approaching.
Thanks a lot,
Andy

This gets asked ALL THE TIME on the forums. Pretty sure everybody always recommends Pat @ Castle Comics.

Nothing wrong in asking, I was searching for a post like this not long ago.

If you happen to be nearer the west coast I have a sub service. Else I'd also support Pat's recommendation.

Oh, there's certainly nothing wrong in asking. But it IS a question I see asked a lot. Perhaps a sticky post, called "Stores that Offer Subscription Services" would be in order? Everybody could post their sub services, payment options, etc.

Not a bad idea, maybe even front it on the CCL home page? Admin?

I, for one, am having trouble deciding because I don't know the rates by going through sellers' stores... or knowing if there is even a means to do so.

I think that Pat's service is probably the best one I've seen.

He offers 35% off monthly books, has a good deal on cost items (cards, toys, etc). He offers free shipping once a month on order over $75, and a reasonable charge for monthly orders under $75. And all books come with shiny, new bags-and-boards.

And I don't know about the OP, but for you, dementia, being in Boston, you'd likely get your books quickly, as he's in Jersey.

Not as of yet. It's something that I've been thinking about though.
Ideally I'd like to have all of previews listed so that each month a seller that offers a sub service can opt in to this feature which would enable a special section where his subscribers could access and order from. Once the books arrive and the seller lists them, the book listings would be accessible only by the subscrber who can then choose to buy them at varying frequencies.

The main purpose behind this is obviously so that CCL gets it's cut but also it gives a super nice interface for subscribers to use to order their books each month and track as they arrive.

For the time being, I found another guy. It sounds like it'll work out better for me, because I can get all this months comics that way and also pay on the 3rd of the month. That's the main thing. Around the 20th I have NO money. It goes to bills and stuff at the beginning of the month. Anyway, for last months comics and all everything SHOULD work out fine. This month is now taken care of through who I'm using. I've been working on this all day, since 7am. Had to go through my previews catalog to see what I needed coming up the next two months. I managed to get it all together and HOPEFULLY the new person will be able to work with me. Thanks guys!!!!!!!!Angel
