In 2007, Flipkart started its journey with Sachin and Binny Bansal delivering a book themselves to their first ever customer. Seven years later, Flipkart has another tale worth bookmarking—one from its very roots.
In April 2015, Flipkart has logged a record 30 million books sold through its home-bred state-of-the-art ecommerce platform. Today, with a wide selection of book titles, exclusive author collections and thousands of eBooks—Flipkart has transformed the Indian online book space.
Commenting on this landmark achievement, Ankit Nagori – SVP, Marketplace, Flipkart said, “Flipkart started with books seven years ago with the dream of enabling readers and readership across India. Having sold over 30 million books via our platform, we have made that dream come true. Today we are an engagement platform for book lovers – giving them access to not only their favourite titles, but also insights, expert reviews and exclusive author interactions. We are looking forward to driving more innovation and engagement in this category in the coming years.”
