“Instant Checkout is just the latest innovation in a line of updates we’ve made to comiXology that continues our tradition of having the best digital comics platform,” said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “We’ve been working closely with our colleagues at Amazon to even further improve upon the customer experience comiXology fans know and love. This range of releases over the last few months is just a taste of what’s to come.”
To use Instant Checkout, comiXology users must have a saved payment method linked to their account – either a credit card, Pay with Amazon credentials or PayPal. Once the payment info is saved, users will be able purchase any of comiXology’s over 50,000 comics, graphic novels & manga on comixology.com with a single push of a button.
For the mobile browser, after buying titles via Instant Checkout, pushing the “Read” button on the mobile web checkout screen will now take you to the comiXology app and prompt you to download your book right away from the product detail page. This update makes it easier for mobile web users to buy then read in the app.
