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…)

Many consumers won’t even consider transacting with a company that doesn’t have a strong online presence to go with their physical store. A website should serve as a company’s central hub in today’s modern marketing world.

We recently announced that we are working on an online product catalogue management system for pharmacies. We’re now excited to say that GO Healthy will be one of the first suppliers to have their product catalogue ready to sync with a Storbie online pharmacy store through this system.
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.
