Flipkart’s kirana partners delivered over 4 million packages in the first 4 days of TBBD 2023. The company said that seller success reached new heights with 2 times “crorepati seller growth over TBBD 2022”.

There was a 60 per cent increase observed in Flipkart Plus memberships, compared to last year. Transacting sellers saw a 2.5 times increase in their business, compared to the pre-festive period.

“In this milestone year, we continue to spread festive cheer by creating 1 lakh new job opportunities across our supply chain, including fulfillment centres, sortation centres and delivery hubs,” said Kalyan Krishnamurthy, CEO, Flipkart Group.

“This year’s ‘The Big Billion Days’ has received great response from both customers and our extensive network of sellers across the country,” he added.
