Searching for a product by manually typing item names or item numbers for an average cart size of 25-50 items is time-consuming and cumbersome. With the ‘Scan 2 Buy’ feature, Flipkart Wholesale members can now use this option in the app to scan the item’s barcode to quickly access the product details page.

This helps streamline the otherwise manual process of cart making and check out by enabling customers to directly create a digital cart. Once the digital cart is ready, the picker at the store completes picking for the items. Once the order picking is completed, the order gets invoiced (automated process), and packing of the goods is done.

Launched in 2020, Flipkart Wholesale offers a selection of products spanning across categories including fashion, grocery or general merchandise. Flipkart Wholesale claims to serve over 1.5 million members across the country, which include kiranas, HoReCa (hotels, restaurants and cafeterias) and O&I (offices and institutions).
