Flipkart has reached over 1.4 million sellers on its platform ahead of the 10th edition of The Big Billion Days, its annual flagship event. With this, the company has reached growth of over 27 per cent of sellers on the platform since last year. This also signifies the growing ecosystem of sellers and MSMEs in the country.

The new sellers that have joined the platforms hail from across the length and breadth of India, including metro cities Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities such as Jammu, Kanyakumari, Kollam, Ludhiana, Mangalore, Thrissur and Vellore. Most new sellers on-boarded contribute to products under lifestyle, BGM and home categories.

Flipkart had also announced marketplace policy changes and new capabilities to build a more inclusive e-commerce ecosystem that contributes to seller partners’ growth, prosperity, and empowerment. Ahead of the 10th edition of Flipkart's TBBD (The Big Billion Days), Flipkart Seller Hub recently concluded an extensive series of seller conclaves spanning several major cities - Delhi, Surat, Jaipur, Agra, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, and Kolkata.

Speaking on the milestone and growth of sellers, Rajneesh Kumar, chief corporate officer, Flipkart Group, said, “At Flipkart, we are focused on building and enabling opportunities via e-commerce for Indian businesses, especially MSMEs. We have taken several steps through our Flipkart Samarth program to help make e-commerce more inclusive for a wide range of sellers, including artisans, craftsmen, women and people with disabilities.”

“Reflecting on my journey, seeing how my business has evolved on Flipkart's platform is fulfilling. Flipkart has nurtured my growth, from navigating the initial stages easily through the 10 minute onboarding process to witnessing increased operational efficiency and customer insights. As I anticipate the upcoming festive season, I'm confident that my evolved approach, backed by Flipkart's unwavering support, will take my business to new heights," said Salman Sheikh, a Flipkart seller who owns a lighting and audio business named Good Price Store.
