With all marketplaces competing for more and more sellers, Flipkart is now upping the ante. The portal is offering new sellers an opportunity to enhance their sales by entering the virtual market at 0 commission.

The Flipkart Seller Advantage Week enables new sellers to register with the portal and sell their wares without paying any commission for sales conducted between 20th July and 5th September 2015. Registrations are open from 13th July to 18th July 2015. Interested people can share their business details and upload their documents during this period to avail this offer by registering here.
In addition to the above provision, Flipkart is offering other services to attract new sellers. These include free product photo shoots worth Rs. 5000 for goods catalogued by the sellers. Sellers also get to try out the Google Apps for Work totally free for a period of 30 days. Last but not the least, sellers registering within the week, get complete support of dedicated VAT partners from Flipkart for selling their goods.
This is a welcome move by Flipkart to improve the seller ecosystem and incentivise more people to sell online. At Primaseller, we support such endeavours along with similar programs by Amazon and Snapdeal that encourage more seller participation.
