OkShop provides the ease of doing business to all the small merchants by allowing them to set up their online presence in two simple steps.

This opportunity will now enable the weavers to reach to their potential consumers directly along with providing an incentive to increase their sales and gain higher visibility of their products across India. There is no commission attached to it, so the weavers can sell their products free of cost to end consumers.

OkShop provides a platform to digitally empower them, and the Diwali campaign this year depicts gratitude and appreciation to the small merchants for their selfless support extended during this challenging situation; we hope we’re able to make a difference in the Chanderi society.”
