Storbie is the website and e-commerce platform recommended for pharmacies by the Pharmacy Guild of New Zealand.
We know through our work with the Guild, and the hundreds of pharmacy owners we deal with throughout New Zealand, that one of the biggest challenges pharmacy owners face in managing a website is time.
That’s why we’ve created the Storbie Pharmacy Supplier Network, which allows pharmacies to load products to their Storbie website faster than ever with compliant descriptions and quality images direct from suppliers. (more…)

Over the last 12 months Storbie has quickly grown to be the biggest supplier of ecommerce-capable websites to independent pharmacies in New Zealand. During that time, we have spoken to hundreds of pharmacies, come to admire the important work that they do and appreciate the way that they manage a complex and challenging business.
Pharmacies are not only delivering an important health service – that many of us take for granted and takes years of training, focus and attention to detail – they are also managing a complex retail business, bringing together products from hundreds of suppliers into a busy store. It’s no wonder that pharmacies often struggle to find the time to get their pharmacy and product catalogue online even if they appreciate the importance of doing so.
Identifying the challenges of online product catalogue management for pharmacies
At Storbie, we are a practical bunch. We are always striving to identify and solve our customers’ real challenges. We have also always been the champion of the independent retailer. While working with pharmacies, we have come to learn that the biggest challenge facing the independent pharmacy in New Zealand regarding setting up and managing a digital channel is the product catalogue.

About the Role
Storbie is experiencing rapid growth: to support this we are searching for a high performing and energetic Digital Marketing Executive to help design, drive and execute marketing activities across all aspects of the business.
Storbie is committed to developing the most loved ecommerce platform in the world. Unique to Storbie is the ability to create online marketplaces that connect numerous individual online stores and their products together but still allow shoppers to connect with individual brands and help businesses sell more. In this way, the Storbie online store and marketplace builder doesn’t leave retailers standing on their own in the world of ecommerce. Storbie enables businesses to optionally cluster together into marketplaces – under a common cause, category or geographic brand for example – to maximise their discovery, customer loyalty and business growth.
Storbie is showcasing this marketplace functionality by launching four new online marketplaces that are designed to include a wide range of online stores and their products. Shoppers can enjoy browsing across thousands of products in each marketplace and are then directed to individual online stores to make any purchases. Each of the four marketplaces are running launch campaigns with some awesome products on offer, check them out! (more…)
Storbie is excited to announce we have just released the first set of international shop features which enables the creation of Storbie online stores based anywhere around the world!
This is only the beginning of our international shop support and we have a set of improvements rolling out over the coming months that will provide much more flexibility. Many of the improvements will benefit New Zealand customers as well, such as a significant upgrade to options for shipping calculations.
The following features are in closed beta, so if you’d like them enabled on a store, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (more…)
All standalone Storbie online stores will soon be supported by a growing network of marketplaces. Anyone will be able to create a marketplace to collectively promote individual brands, and any business will be able to join existing marketplaces to increase online exposure and sales. With Storbie, you can be different, together.
Online retail mirroring the physical world
In physical retail, competing or complementary businesses often band together in a cluster to increase the value, exposure and sales of their individual brands. The best of these clusters become brands in their own right. This could be a retail precinct, like Wellington’s quirky Cuba Street, for example.
At Storbie we realise that standing out from the crowd, gaining exposure and increasing sales in the online world can be even more challenging. So why not bring the idea of clusters online? With the Storbie marketplace builder, you can. (more…)
