What do you like best?

I've been using Storbie for my store for 4 years now and I absolutely recommend them. The customer service is outstanding. The platform is really user friendly. This is Kiwi owned so it's easy to claim as a business expense. I get plenty of hits and my store is automatically mobile friendly! I absolutely recommend this product to everyone Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not have any complaints. Storbie is fantastic for my store Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The best feature is that it is simple to use. I sell far more now through Storbie than I ever did with Ipage. It integrates with other companies like PayPal and Xero. The customer service you receive is prompt and excellent. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Storbie service makes it easy and effective to run an online business. This is not just a basic system either, allowing really awesome customer and business experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike really. It would be nice to have ready to use courier/transport integration (more of a feature request). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Time and reliability is money for any business. It's very hard to beat what Storbie delivers and allows a small to medium online business to achieve. We have non-technical business staff effectively run our on-line business web shop. Storbie allows you to focus on the customer, products, and the business tasks rather than the technical nuts and bolts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Effective Online Web shop

2. Fast and easy to manage by business staff (not technical staff)

3. Reliable

4. Comprehensive functionality - all in one place

5. VERY cost effective Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Even if you do not have the experience of web design, Storbie will help you easily, quickly and easily create your own store. Everything is simple and clear - there are many templates and management tools. Constant updates. The support service works promptly and professionally! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing to say about this. It seems to me that the service desk solves all the problems immediately, constantly improving Storbie. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Excellent platform, especially for users who do not have web design experience. An easy way to manage. It's easy to adjust prices and inventory, and you can do it yourself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I started working with the software product from several positions, and now I have hundreds of them. This platform gave the opportunity to expand the boundaries of our business and attract additional customers. This had a significant impact on income levels.

What do you like best?

I was able to easily set up an on-line shop as a small 'hobby' business. The platform is quite intuitive and easy to work your way around. It is also easy to maintain and revise when necessary. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The payment option - PayPal is a good system but not all customers have PayPal accounts. This has necessitated creating invoices or sending people emails with bank account details. While PayPal is good - especially for international customers - it would be nice to have another payment system that most customers can use easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It saves me a lot of time on a small business activity that is not my primary source of income. I started buying gear for myself and a small group of friends. Other people heard about it and started asking for the same gear. Having my Storbie on-line shop has saved me a lost of time and also opened up sales of product lines which I was not initially focused on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Storbie has been fantastically easy and cost effective to use. I launched an E-commerce site to raise money for a international sporting event. It took just a few hours effort to have a fully functional site online and accepting payments. The Storbie interface is very intuitive given its complexity, and Storbie staff have been personable, helpful, and responsive. This is my first online shop and it has been almost too easy! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike. The only limitation I have found is that Storbie doesn't yet have much support for non-English languages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

To create a viable site with Storbie, you will also need to think about:

1. A domain - you can register this through Storbie or use your own DNS provider

2. A payment provider - Storbie has a few partners and provides really good instructions on how to use them. eWay provides really personal service, but I ended up using Paypal which I could setup without a Merchant Account.

3. Orders - Storbie gives good reports on what has been ordered etc. There are also lots of options in Storbie for shipping costs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I wanted to create a business that would sell products to as large a market as possible, and I didn't want to spend much money or handle payments. Storbie enabled me to do this, and also meant that my network can easily refer their networks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Simple & easy to understand for all users no matter what your web design knowledge. Template system allows for fast loading of new content in a cohesive design style. Good tool for online stock management, which allows a range of product options for each item. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Unable to add own coding to website to add further customisation, however has excellent support staff to help to add new features to the website. Unable to undo a step without un-doing all progress. Also have to publish all edits at one time not in stages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Excellent system for users who have basic to little understanding of web design. Allows you to customise design to tailor to your company. Easy way to manage online inventory with good flexibility to adjust pricing and stock levels. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Storbie allows you to self-manage the website and the product uploading is simple, once you have had it set professionally by a Storbie accredited developer and we can not speak highly enough of Donna at Not Just Red Ones, very professional through the whole process as we transitioned to an e-commerce website, selling online or attracting visitors to our premises has just easier. Especially considering the product is floor rugs and people generally need to touch and feel the rug as part of the buying process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really but the secret is to have enough product to create a storefront but that is not a storbie issue that is our issue it seems to be a critical number of product supports engagement. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This platform is very easy to use once set up - we believe using a Storbie accredited developer is critical, the investment to get on to this platform is affordable, you can maintain it and it is software developed in New Zealand with supported in New Zealand Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We don't have any problems as our Storbie accredited developer Donna at Not Just Red Ones made the transition journey easy the hold up was at our end in uploading the product etc, but once completed we were underway.

The benefits we have realised is our customers are engaging with us differently they are doing their research online then connecting with us via email or telephone so the sales funnel is changing, those that come to are prequalified. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Storbie allows to setup a web store within hours, start to finish. Storbie provides the host, the eCommerce platform, a very robust and aesthetically pleasing UI and UX both for admin and users, the technical interface and support to realise the integration with the payment gateway.

It is light years ahead of all the competition, including the US based tenors (who promise a lot and deliver very little - believe me: I tried and wasted my time!).

On top of all these qualities, the set up is free. Really. It's unbelievable.

When you have finished with setting up your Storbie store, you'll wonder why you have to pay set up and running fees for the payment gateway provider of your choice: these people are pretty slow. Once again the Storbie support will cheer you up by providing you tips to get things moving with your payment gateway provider. They sorted KiwiBank for me, and I am thankful beyond words. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about Storbie. Their product, service and support is top notch. It is a very well engineered product and there is no surprise: it works.

I wish I found Storbie faster! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The previous site hosting company I was with lost my pages and had not backed up properly when they did a major update. Their response was very unprofessional and unhelpful. After speaking to the staff at Storbie I was up and running with a system that was very easy to use, understand and work through. The only limitations on getting everything the way I want it has been me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The simplicity of the build & being able to edit so easily too - plus the support is second to none. And the customer experience is also very easy. I love to support NZ Made too, I know there are fancier (on the surface) 'build your own' websites, but the robustness of Storbie is second to none - I love the integration to PayPal & eWay. Storbie listen too - if you make suggestions they are happy to add them to the list for future improvements. It is also important to Storbie to keep up with technology Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything - I would like for international customers to be able to not select NZ as their country as it can muck postage costs up but I've been able to sort that out directly with the customer easily and it doesn't happen very often. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it! I have two Storbie sites for my two brands - I made the mistake of spending too much to have a website built, hated it and the high costs of admin and editing and was happy to shut it down and switch to Storbie Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Huge benefit is the cost effectiveness - the monthly fee enables a small business like mine have an quality and accessible website for my customers worldwide. Also, the ease of editing! No huge costs to edit, I can do it myself, whenever I want to - if I get a bit stuck, a quick email to support and they help very promptly.

What do you like best?

I like that it's built for NZ'ers & integrates with other NZ based solution providers like Vend and Xero. I like that the support team is NZ based and they're pretty darn good. I'm loving that Storbie is working not just on helping customers making great individual websites, but is actively working to grow online market places so its individual customers can make the most of their online stores. Storbie might not be as flashy as some of its overseas competitors - there aren't any pretty themes and fancy layouts - but what is there is solid and reliable. The really important thing - ie how the e-commerce side of it actually functions - is where Storbie truely excels. Well, that and their previously mentioned customer service and support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing I dislike but there are a few things Storbie can't do (yet) such as user product reviews but it's probably just a matter of time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I set up our Storbie shop for acharity with no online experience of this sort. I was somewhat apprehensive but the process was very intuitive and the online help instructions extremely useful. Most of all though, when I came unstuck, I was able to contact Storbie directly and always got a kind and positive response the next day - very clear, not patronising, genuine help. And the shop looks great and is easy to use. I wanted to do something that helped a busy, important charity run by a very small number of dedicated hard-working people - I wanted to do something for this charity that would make life easier and better for it and its people and thanks to Storbie I have!" Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike. I thought I would struggle but it looks good and was easyto set up. As we are a charity, Storbie even gives us a discounted sub. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a charity; a hardworking, under-funded, under-staffed charity providing, across New Zealand, shelter, rehabilitation, veterinary services and loving homes for animals, education and problem-solving for people and advice for legislators. We totally rely on donations to do all that we do. Thanks to Storbie, with no extra effort from our team, we can sell products that not only make the charity some money but also provide people with, as an example, much needed shampoos and lotions for their allergy suffering companions. We sell products every day through the shop, painlessly and effectively, thanks to the simplicity and quality of the Storbie shop. We LOVE it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
