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…)

The ABC’s of high-pixel-density screens
Apple introduced the first high density screen with the release of the iPhone 4, with four times the resolution of standard screens. They named this screen the Retina Display to reflect that the individual dots on the screen (pixels) are no longer discernible to the naked eye, resulting in much sharper and more natural looking graphics and text. These high density displays are now common across mobile devices and are starting to appear on laptop and desktop screens. However the majority of images on the internet do not contain enough data to be able to display all of this additional detail, resulting in images that look just as blocky or blurry as they do on standard screens. This is a pity because high density graphics are a wonderful thing, and that’s why Storbie now supports high density graphics. (more…)
