Presumably also, buying from the 2000 AD shop leaves a bigger cut for Rebellion/2000 AD? I've no idea what back-end's being used there, but anything bought through Apple means Apple takes a hefty cut.

Yes, we get 100% of the revenue (after VAT is deducted) from digital sales made through our own 2000 AD web store. The web shop's backend was developed in-house. For purchases made through iOS or Android Apple/Google take a 30% cut...  So more money per transaction is available for producing new Thrills from sales made through our web shop than through iOS/Android sales...

I notice that the graphic novel prices are currently higher through the iPad app but if I go to the online store I can get the digital version usually for £3 cheaper and then it shows up on my iPad. Lovely.

Is this a deliberate pricing policy to reflect the costs you have to pay to apple for handling digital content?

Bu the way, thanks for having the feature that stops me buying digital content I already. Saved me another £9.99.  :-[

Hi Eamon - this isn't actually a deliberate pricing policy change, we do actually try to harmonise prices across all our retail platforms and recently reviewed (and in a number of cases lowered) our Prog, Meg and subscription pricing. It's due to Apple putting up the UK price for some of their pricing tiers recently. We will review the digital graphic novel pricing very soon to bring the UK pricing back to previous levels across all our platforms (i.e. to £9.99 in most cases).

In the meantime, as you noticed, you can still purchase digital graphic novels at the original price point via the 2000 AD web shop https://shop.2000ad.com/catalogue/graphic-novels, and any purchases made there will be available to download and view via our iOS 2000 AD app (in any of our 2000 AD reader apps, in fact).

BTW we're aware the 2000 AD web shop is quite slow at the moment, but are currently working on some major performance optimisations which we hope to be able to put in place soon.

Hi Dave - Is it still doing this? I can't reproduce this our end. The DNS changes ought to have filtered through to everywhere by now, though possibly not. Have you tried clearing your web browser's cache?

We're working on it...

Working now, phew!!!!!  :)

Where you using an iOS device? There was a bug that was affecting iPhone and possibly iPad users, it's now fixed.

Hi,
I had the idea that Sláine Psychopom HC was scheduled for the 4th of May but I cannot find it on the webshop. Does the preorder have a dedicated section?
Thanks in advance for a reply.

Hi vark - Sláine: The Brutania Chronicles - Book 3 (Psycopomp) will be released tomorrow (3rd May) and will be available to purchase from here: https://shop.2000ad.com/catalogue/XB608

There was no pre-order for this title

I'd also like a way to toggle the whole store to Show digital pricing/digital content, as it seems to default to print.

Which means if I'm looking at a list of Progs for sale it shows 'add to basket' instead of 'purchased' since I haven't bought a print copy, only a digital one.

We're on that already, the idea being that you will be able to choose to display all content, or filter on just displaying digital or just print content (though things like Clothing and Merchandise will always display), though we'll still indicate when the alternate version is also available (e.g. perhaps by showing that format greyed-out) - this way it will also be quicker to add multiple different products to the basket, as you won't have to select the format each time.

Hope to have this work done in the weeks following Easter, it's a little more complicated to do than you might think, otherwise we would have done this already.
Thanks for the update. I look forward to switching back to the online store instead of using the Rebellion Account portal.

BTW we'll be removing the shop functionality (apart from subscription management) from the Rebellion Account Portal soon, as it duplicates what the 2000 AD shop can do now and it's a headache having to maintain two different code bases.

Hi,

In the 2000AD Rebellion digital shop download section (https://account.rebellion.co.uk/2000ad/download), you can sort your downloads but it would be really nice if you could filter them too. Even just a simple filter like type: {Progs, Megs, Graphic Novels}, would be crazy useful. I've got about 3 years worth of progs and megs in my account so finding a graphic novel that I bought even a year ago can be a bit fiddly.

Just a suggestion :)

Apart from this I actually massively prefer this new digital portal to the old 2000AD shop, so congrats!

Cheers,
Dan

Hi Dan - sorry for the delay in getting back to you, thanks for your helpful feedback. Our next round of improvements to the 2000 AD shop will mostly centred around usability/UX improvements, so any suggestions in this area are welcome. We'll see what we can do regarding the filtering of your Downloads, so that purchases are easier to find.

BTW in the meantime, if you know the name of a digital product you've purchased, you should be able to search for it, and then you would be able to download it from the product page.

« on: 22 February, 2017, 03:42:45 pm »
We're looking into this, it's to do with the way Apple has automatically increased prices recently. For now there is a workaround, all non-special digital Progs are only £1.99 on the 2000 AD web shop (if in the UK), and any purchases made there will be available to download from within the iOS app, assuming you've used the same login for both. Even Android users can save money this way too.

BTW to clarify, any digital content purchase via the 2000 AD web shop (including content from subscriptions) will be available to download and view in all versions of the 2000 AD mobile app (iOS, Android, Windows 10), if logged in which the same credentials.

Yes, that's what I meant. On a standard web page, you flick and the screen continues scrolling. This isn't anything that's implemented – it just is. So whatever scripting you're using is overriding the default behaviour, and makes the shop feel really weird and 'sticky'. (The net result is the site feels oddly broken on Apple devices, despite looking the part when static.)

Yes, that's what I thought you meant, we should be able to fix this soon, it's not that complicated to do.

Scrolling is weird on iPhone. It works only when you physically drag, which is unlike other websites and feels off.

Hi - do you mean that there's very little "inertial"/momentum scrolling? I think I see what you mean, we'll take a look to see if there's anything we can do about this, I think there may be.

This looks pretty easy to implement, so it's been added to our task list
