Here you will get two types of options:

  1. Add a Single Listing
  2. Add listing in Bulk

What is a Bulk listing?

If a unique product has different colors and sizes then select bulk listing as it reduces your time compared to a one-by-one single listing.

For e.g- T-Shirt

As in this post, we are learning a single product listing. So we will select “add a single listing”. 

After this select the relevant product category as per your approved brand by Flipkart. If you select any other brand category that is not approved by Flipkart then you will be asked for brand approval again.

If you have an approved brand list then select the category and proceed further.

Now, we will have a list of sections to fill one by one, some fields are mandatory and some are optional. The mandatory fields are marked with (*). We must try to fill all the details properly to make the listing professional.

Let’s understand each step one by one:                                           


We can upload up to 8 images of the product, out of which two images are compulsory. The image orientation should be front, back, side, upper and lower, moreover, the image resolution should be not less than 500×500 pixels. The image should be on a white background and clear.

Listing Status (*)



It represents the Listing Status of the product. We need to select it “active”, so our listing is marked active. An inactive product listings are not accessed by the buyers


MRP (*)

Your Selling Price (*)

MRP (Maximum Retail Price) and selling price are two different prices. The selling price should always be below MRP. Calculate your selling price after the deduction of all the various charges which are incurred by Flipkart like fixed fees, commission and shipping charges, etc.


Fulfillment by (*)

  1. Seller
  2. Smart Seller

As you are new to Flipkart so select ‘Seller”

Procurement SLA(*)

  1. Instock
  2. Express
  3. Domestic Procurement

In “Instock” we select the time of shipment according to us and in “Express” the time of shipment is for one day. “That means, if we fail to ship the order within one day” then your seller account will be breached. So select either “Instock” or “Express” according to your convenience.

Stock  (*)

Fill in your stock quantity as per the availability.

Stock Available for buyers (Not compulsory)


Shipping Provider (*)

1. Seller

2. Flipkart

3. Seller And Flipkart

Flipkart offers self-shipment to some specific sellers, “In a very rare case if the product is heavyweight items then it offers you the self-shipment services”. So we have to select Flipkart. Flipkart Courier Partners “Ekart” logistics will collect orders from you and will ship them. 


Local Delivery Charge:

Zonal Delivery Charge:

National Delivery Charge:

This section is not compulsory to fill out but if we do not fill this section then Flipkart deducts shipping charges from our sold items. Therefore, fill the delivery charges minimum of Rs.30 for Local Delivery Charge, Rs 45 for Zonal Delivery Charge, and Rs. 60 for National Delivery Charge.


1) Plus Listing

2) Non-Plus Listing

Plus listing is for plus members, whenever a plus member buys your product they don’t have to pay delivery charges and that delivery charge is deducted from the selling price of your sold items. But it also has an advantage that the rating of your product increases. I would recommend you select Plus Listing.



Length (*)

Breadth (*)

height (*)

In this section, we have to fill out the correct dimension of the product after packaging. The dimension means the length, breadth, height, and weight of the product.


Make ensure to provide the correct HSN code and Tax code (i.e GST Rate) of the product.

If any error is found in ‘Quality Check’ then, Flipkart will indicate these errors along with the product attributes. You can promptly spot the errors with a specific error tag and provide the correct details. You just need to rectify them and submit the listing for QC again.

What are the common reasons for failing listing in QC?

  • Product image showing MRP.
