FY20 was the first full fiscal year after the FDI guidelines late December 2018 brought about several changes to how wholesale arms of companies that run ecommerce marketplaces can operate.
Press Note 2 of December 2018 had specified that no vendor on a marketplace can acquire over 25 percent of its inventory from any of the group companies of the marketplace entity.
Flipkart has been aggressively pushing its wholesale business, and earlier this year, the company also acquired the business of Walmart India, which operates 28 B2B modern wholesale stores under the brand name of 'Best Price'. Flipkart launched Flipkart Wholesale, a B2B online marketplace post the acquisition.
Walmart India had recently reported its revenues for fiscal year 2019-20, which came in at Rs 4,926 crore, a 20 percent jump since the last financial year.
