  • Top 5 Sellers Apps To Help Indian Sellers Join ONDC

ONDC has been creating a buzz ever since its inception. Touted as the UPI for ecommerce, Open Network For Digital Commerce aims to democratize ecommerce in India by creating a level playing field for MSMEs. With the open network for ecommerce in place, MSMEs can register themselves on the network and reach out to customers pan-India.

To put it in perspective, ONDC enables small and medium sellers to have an online presence and compete along with industry bigwigs like Amazon, Flipkart etc. to reach customers anywhere in India. 

How will ONDC work?

The revolutionary open network creates a framework where all the existing online buyers can use some buyer app registered on the network to discover products and services sold by the sellers. The sellers registered on the network, use buyer apps to list their products and make them discoverable when any buyer searches for a product.

Let us understand this with a real-life example. Suppose a buyer Mohan Kumar is planning to buy basmati rice. He searches for basmati rice on the ONDC network. His request will be processed by the multi-domain network registry which will show all the sellers on the ONDC network that are selling basmati rice. This means that Mohan will be able to choose the best product that suits his budget instead of being limited by any platform like Amazon or Flipkart which will show him only a few sellers registered with their platform.

What is the ONDC Seller App?

ONDC seller app is the software that offers end-to-end solutions to sellers to list, showcase and sell their products to millions of customers across India via the Government of India-backed Open Network for Digital Commerce. Seller app helps various SME businesses, D2C sellers, dealers, individuals etc. to register on the open network and scale their business digitally.

Various ecommerce solution providers have offered their seller apps for merchants planning to join ONDC. The top 5 seller apps to start selling quickly on ONDC are:

  1. Mystore seller app for ONDC

  2. eSamudaay app

  3. GOFRUGAL Technologies ERP and seller app 

  4. Growth Falcons app for F&B sellers

  5. SellerApp

How does the ONDC Seller App work?

The ONDC seller app is basically an interface that helps merchants create an online store for their business. It also registers the sellers for the ONDC network and helps them specify their service area, GSTIN and other details. After completing the process sellers can be discoverable on the open network for ecommerce whenever a buyer searches for a product sold by the seller.

For example, Mr Ravi Gupta registers his store “ Guptakirana” on the ONDC network and lists different grocery items for selling in a range of 10 kilometres. When the buyer Mohan Kumar from the previous example searches for “basmati rice” on his buyer app, he will be shown the varieties and rates of basmati rice sold by Mr Ravi Gupta and other sellers selling the same product as below.

Seller Name                       Product                   Rate             Shipping Charges

Guptakirana                       Basmati Rice         175/kg                         None

RKGeneralStore                  Basmati Rice         195/kg                        Rs. 18

RKGeneralStore                  Basmati Rice         155/kg                        Rs. 45

Clearly, buying from Guptakirana is the most profitable deal for Mohan Kumar and so he will place an order on Mr. Gupta’s store. 

Once the payment is made, Guptakirana can see the order in its admin panel and align the item for shipment using either a delivery partner or its own fleet of delivery boys.
