“From trendy Jaipuri Kurtis to evergreen Mysore silk saris, we aim to help small businesses embrace the digital transformation and emerge as more robust businesses,” said Menon. “We’re excited to see our initiative contributing to the prosperity of MSMEs, kiranas and creating lakhs of new and exciting livelihood opportunities in India.”
By the year’s end, Flipkart Wholesale also plans to expand into categories such as home and grocery.
Flipkart Wholesale customers will have access to easy credit facilities in partnership with leading banks and NBFCs (non-banking financial companies) to manage cash flow. The firm said the customers would also have access to a wide range of Flipkart assured quality products, simple and convenient order returns and speedy product delivery directly to their shops with an easy order tracking facility.
In July, Flipkart strengthened its wholesale presence with the acquisition of Walmart India, which operates the Best Price cash-and-carry business.
