At Green Ronin we have always valued our partners in the retail and distribution tiers. We love good game stores and we want to see them thrive in the new millennium. To that end we are launching GR Pre-Order Plus, a new program for retailers. This will allow gamers to pre-order our new products through their local game stores and receive the same special deals on PDFs that we offer in our online store. If you are a gamer, ask your local store if they are signing up for GR Pre-Order Plus. If you are a retailer, read on for the specifics of the program.
GR Pre-Order Plus is open to confirmed brick and mortar retail stores. Members will be notified when one of our products is ready for pre-order and each will receive a batch of unique codes via e-mail. When a customer pre-orders the product through a member store, the staff need simply pass a code to the purchaser in any way they prefer (e-mail, business card, slip of paper, etc.). The purchaser can then go to the Green Ronin online store and buy the PDF of the product they just pre-ordered for a reduced cost (typically $5) using the code. The Green Ronin online store will offer the exact same terms (pre-order the book, get the PDF for cheap). This will allow customers to pre-order at their local stores and get the same deal as those who purchase direct from Green Ronin.
To sign up for GR Pre-Order Plus, simply send an e-mail with your store’s information (name, location, website, preferred e-mail) to . Let us know if you’d like to be listed in our website’s retail locator; we can show you how to set that up, as well as list you as a member of the program. You’ll get 10 codes to start but if you use them all, simply e-mail again and we’ll send you more.
The first release using the program will be the highly anticipated DC Adventures RPG. We want to start it off with a bang and DC Adventures will do just that.
