In recent times, digitization and UPI payments have become pervasive in India, leading to a flourishing e-commerce landscape. Riding this wave of progress, the government has introduced ONDC (Open Network for Digital Commerce), an initiative aimed at creating a fair and inclusive environment for online sellers.

The primary goal of ONDC is to empower sellers and brands, enabling them to unleash their full potential in the vast online marketplace.

The initiative aims to eliminate barriers and provide equal opportunities for all participants in the e-commerce market, regardless of their registered platforms. By fostering a level playing field, ONDC contributes to the growth and prosperity of the digital commerce sector in India.

Through collaboration and shared resources, the ONDC network is reshaping the e-commerce landscape by driving innovation and streamlining operations.
