How to sell more using Storbie Marketplaces

One of the unique features of Storbie is the ability to create and join marketplaces.

A marketplace is an online destination for multiple shops to be grouped together to increase discoverability, it’s part of being “Different Together“.

The more visibility your website and products have, the more likely customers will see your products and buy from you.

No more waiting until the weekend, handling cash or moving stock in the rain!

In this article we will look at how to get the most out of joining a marketplace with a listing page, as well as with an existing Storbie website. (more…)
