How to List Products on Government e-Marketplace?

The renowned e-commerce portal, GEM, has already taken the business class of India by storm owing to its transparency and ease of usage. As a buyer/seller, you will have to create an account on the platform before pursuing your endeavours. 

However, the story doesn’t end with GEM registration for everyone. If you are enlisting yourself as a seller, then you will need to list your products on the platform as well. In essence, the aforementioned task can be somewhat difficult for not-so-tech-savvy people. 

So, in case you need to any assistance, you can always contact BidAssist. The organization has been offering aid to everyone since the inception of GEM. Therefore, they will be an ideal option for you. 

Nevertheless, if you are more of a do-it-yourself type of person, then be sure to go through the following steps. Hopefully, the task will seem much easier than ever. 

Step: 1 – Jot Down the Basic Information of the Product 

As a seller, you should always aim to offer a clear image of the product to your consumer as precisely as possible. To do so, you will need to provide general specifications regarding the same under its photo. The step should be done after the GEM registration procedure has been completed properly. Here are a few things that you should proffer while describing your items –

  • The name of the item you are offering 
  • A sublime description of the product (how to use it, etc.)
  • The brand of the same 
  • HSN code 
  • Category and sub-category of the product 
  • The model number of the product 
  • SKU ID 

Step: 2 – The Availability of the Product 

Secondly, you will need to offer some insights on the current availability of the product. Furthermore, you will have to update the same instantly, whenever someone buys from the same bunch. This way, it will be easier for you to manage your inventory more precisely. Your consumers will also know the number of products they can currently order. 

Step: 3 – Provide the Price 

Now, as a seller, you will need to monetize each and every product of yours. Thus, quoting the price of the same becomes the next crucial step for you. Here are some of the types of pricing that you need to tag with your item – 

  • MRP (maximum retail price)
  • Offer price (in case you are offering a discount, write the percentage below) including the taxes 

The offer price needs to be at least 10% lower than the MRP of the product! 

Step: 4 – Other Details of the Item 

Aside from the aforementioned ones, there are several other details that you will have to provide on your product. Some of these are – 

  • The height and the size of the product 
  • The currently available colour options 
  • Its dimensions 
  • Actual weight and how much it weighs after packaging 
  • How is it used or employed

Be sure to fill up these details after completing the GEM registration procedure. If there is anything else that you wish to share, then make sure to put them on the list as well. 

Step: 5 – Upload Images 

Last yet not least, you will need to upload the correct image of the product as well. Be sure to follow the precautions before performing this task. You can learn more about the same on the official website of GeM. 

Conclusion 

So, these are some of the steps that you will need to follow through to list your products on the GEM portal. Be sure to follow all the available rules regarding this aspect. You can also take the help of BidAssist if you get stuck during any stage. They will be happy to help you out!
