Previous Financial Ventures by Flipkart

In July of the previous year, Flipkart ventured into the lending marketplace in collaboration with Axis Bank, introducing a co-branded credit card and a ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ facility.

With over 45 crore active consumers, Flipkart’s financial services include insurance and mobile recharge facilities on its platform.


Strategic Partnerships for Financial Services

Krishnamurthy highlighted Flipkart’s collaborative efforts with financial institutions for its array of financial services.

He stressed the importance of understanding consumer behavior in India, where high ASP (Average Selling Price) products like TVs, refrigerators, and expensive phones are often purchased through lending products like EMIs.


While Flipkart aims to enhance its value proposition for high ASP products, Krishnamurthy clarified that the company does not intend to become a major player in the payments or fintech industry with its own financial services.
