Chaosmailorder.com is now CMOgames.com
In May of 1999 Chaosmailorder.com started as a new online store of tabletop games, including card games, board games, role playing games, and miniatures games.
We spent about 6 months building, tweaking, and testing a makeshift site that was barely better than just text on white space. E-commerce was in its infancy and there were a lot of things to figure out and no wise old man with the answers.
Over the next few years we grew at a steady pace. Late in 2001 Overture started offering pay per click ads on yahoo. This turned out to be the catalyst that would propel us to new heights in eCommerce.
In July 2003, Games Workshop enacted a policy banning the sale of Games Workshop products online via a shopping cart. The only acceptable method was to force customers to call in to place their order over phone. We complied with policy. We continued to sell Non GW products on our site.
Fast forward to 2017. GW removes this policy and returns to allowing Games Workshop product to be sold online by independent retailers.
We realized our shopping cart was quite outdated and at the point in its life cycle where we should do a full upgrade instead of patches.
We also realized our name, Chaosmailorder.com, was kind of dated and probably should be updated and building the new cart was a great time to also move to a new domain name.
