As a publisher, we have had the opportunity to review many online shops over the past years.
It’s our belief that a great online shop should have a wide variety of games and accessories, competitive prices, fast and reliable delivery, good customer service, and an easy to navigate website.
It’s all the things we expect when we buy our paints and miniatures online.
When we review the online shops featured on Adeptus Ars, our team of experts looks at 8 key factors:
- Reputation and ratings: A good reputation helps to establish trust and credibility with customers. Customers are more likely to make a purchase from an online shop that has a good reputation, as they trust that the shop will provide quality products and good customer service.
- A wide variety of games, paints, and accessories: This is self-explanatory – the best Warhammer 40K shops should have a wide variety of games and accessories to choose from. This includes board games, card games, miniatures, paints, and other accessories. Additionally, they should provide detailed information about the products they sell, including images, videos, and specifications.
- Regular promotions and discounts: We love when we can grow our army without paying an arm and a leg. Regular promotions and discounts can be used to attract new customers and thus make the game more popular. Additionally, offering a loyalty program or a special deal for repeat customers can encourage them to return and builds loyalty.
- Competitive prices: As you’ve probably figured it by now, table-top games are an expensive hobby. A good shop should offer competitive prices on its products. This means that the prices should be in line with other shops that sell similar products. Additionally, prices should be clearly displayed with no hidden fees or taxes.
- Fast and reliable delivery: We like stores that offer fast and reliable delivery on its products. This means that the shop should be able to deliver the products in a timely manner, and that the products should be well-packaged to ensure that they arrive in good condition. Top shops online will go as far as providing accurate tracking information provided for their customers.
- Easy return policy: A good online shop should have an easy return policy that is clearly stated on the website.
- Good customer service: A good online table-top games shop should offer reliable and timely customer service. This means that the staff should be knowledgeable and friendly, and that they should be willing to help and provide advice.
- Easy to navigate website: A good online Warhammer 40,000 games and paints shop should have a website that is easy to navigate. This means that the website should be well-organized and easy to find what you’re looking for.
