4Catalogue the products on Flipkart and share the listing data with Increff team.

There are three options for exposing inventory and order fulfilment in Flipkart. 2(b) is the most important to understand.
1. Non F-Assured Products: These are under Seller Fulfillment by default. Inventory sync and Order fulfilment can happen via APIs. Assure is integrated with this model.

2. F-Assured Products:

a. Smart Fulfillment: F-Assured Products under Smart Fulfilment can only be exposed and their orders can only be processed from Flipkart WMS (Flipkart panel). No APIs are available for Smart Fulfillment. Assure cannot be integrated with this model.

b. Seller Fulfillment: Based on the performance of the products (high sales for a certain period of time) and other factors, Flipkart awards F-Assured status to these products, while in Seller Fulfillment. This model has APIs and is integrated with Assure. Few Sellers already have F-Assure Product under Seller Fulfillment tag and are processing these orders from Assure.
