What is Instant Checkout and how do I use it?

Last Updated: Dec 11, 2014 10:38AM EST
Instant Checkout on comiXology is a new and convenient way to buy a comic instantly without using the cart and going through the checkout process.
In order to use Instant Checkout, you must have a saved payment method (credit card, Pay with Amazon credentials, or PayPal) linked to your account. You can turn on Instant Checkout by selecting the “Enabled (if checked)” box on your account’s billing page. When you click “Buy Instantly” your order will be automatically charged to your primary payment method.

Once Instant Checkout is enabled, it replaces "Add to Cart" as the default button under a comic. However, you will still be able to use the cart feature any time you want. For example, on a comic's detail page, you can push the "Buy Instantly" button to buy and immediately add the comic to your library, or "Add to Cart" button for the traditional checkout experience.

When looking through a list of comics on our site, such as New Releases, sales, or any of our other lists, "Buy Instantly" is the default button when Instant Checkout is enabled.

There are three different ways you can turn off Instant Checkout. The first is on your account’s billing page where you can simply uncheck the “Enabled (if checked)” box.
Also, on the home page of you can hover over any title with your mouse to activate a dropdown menu and an option to “Turn off Instant Checkout.” (Note: This option is not available on mobile web.)

And finally you can also turn off Instant Checkout by clicking the drop down menu next to the “Buy Instantly” button and clicking on the “Turn off Instant Checkout” option. “Buy Instantly” buttons with drop down menus can be seen when looking at lists of comics on our site such as New Releases, sales, and other lists. (Note: This option is not available on mobile web)

Instant Checkout also works with subscriptions and pre-orders. The exact same details apply to both and you don't get charged until the day a new subscription or pre-ordered book is added to your account. Instant Checkout simply enables you to quickly subscribe and pre-order without needing to go through the checkout process.
