#flipkart has launched its own fulfillment service for third party merchants called flipkart Advantage. This move from Flipkart has come at a time when tax officials in Karnataka have stopped Amazon from using its fulfillment service over tax issues.
Flipkart mentions that products tagged with Flipkart Advantage badges are quality checked, stocked and shipped by them and come under the 30 day return policy.
Along with this, these products will also become eligible for faster delivery options like Flipkart’s same day delivery and next-day delivery options that were previously offered only for products sold by WS Retail , through which Flipkart sells goods in India .
The company also recently raised$1 billion investment, in June this year from, Tiger Global & Naspers.
Flipkart has not put up any directions for the enrollment procedure or the pricing for its fulfillment service. Neither have they revealed the number of warehouses they have opened in Karnataka.
In May this year, Snapdeal had also stated that it has opened over 40 fulfillment centers across 15 cities.
