If/when we determine that we have ‘rewards’ that are worthy of the title (and your donation!) a Patreon link will be here.
*Until then, if you like what we are trying to move towards, you can make a direct contribution through this link (using another Jetpack feature, so it is secure) with 50% of all donations being split evenly between all artists featured in our Artist’s Edition posts regardless if Emporium Purgatorio offers their art.
Support to Continue Paying Indie Comics Creators
This is a secure payment through PayPal. 50% is distributed to the creators featured in our 'Artist's Editions' in perpetuity.
These are the actual tools that the Unofficial Alan Moore site and the Emporium Purgatorio shop is built upon and utilizes every day. They also happen to offer affiliate links (such as those below) that give a small percentage of an initial sale back to us if you click them and find useful what is on the other side. *It is useful, FYI 😉
We would recommend all three regardless:
- FREE – Jetpack, WordPress, and WooCommerce are all free at the basic level. You can set up a website, blog, shop, or all three with no investment other than time.
- Open Source – WordPress and Jetpack come from an open source community that parallels the Indie Comic one. Profits are the end result of following their passion, not a goal unto itself.
- A WordPress/WooCommerce shop for artists (anyone!) has only a slightly higher learning curve than Big Cartel, et al. But with that you have huge upsides, such as unlimited listings, control over the look of your shop, and most importantly security for your customers.
