Over the next 20 days, Flipkart will undertake a nationwide seller outreach program to educate sellers, onboard them and help them take advantage of the program.
The program will enable sellers from India access to over 171 million active customers of eBay globally in over 190 international markets. Some of these markets include the United States, UK, Germany, Canada and Australia.
"India has immense export potential and there are many SMEs who have unique products but don't know how to make them available to global buyers. With the launch of Flipkart Global, we're removing traditional growth barriers and giving them a platform to reach out internationally and expand sales," said head marketplace at Flipkart and head of eBay India, Anil Goteti. "Besides enabling trade, Flipkart Global will also help generate both direct and indirect employment opportunities, revive the fortunes of many artisans whose products are in huge demand internationally, and bring in much needed foreign exchange for the exchequer," he added.
