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“. Much like going to physical markets, Storbie’s online marketplaces allow shoppers to browse a range of products.

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