India Post on Friday launched its own e-commerce website to help sellers, particularly rural artisans and SHGs sell their products across the country. “The small and local sellers, who have been left behind in e-commerce space, will now be able to maximise their reach and retailing power by leveraging the vast physical and lT network of the Department of Posts,” an official release said.

The products will be shipped through Speed Post. “India Post is open for registration of all vendors for e-commerce business. It will pick up products from vendor and deliver to doorstep of customers,” Minister of State for Communications Manoj Sinha said.
