3Make sure dropship and Omni-channel should not run under the same seller account.
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, hence standard integration is not possible for this model.
Flipkart does not provide any support for issues witnessed by any WMS using scraping or other mechanisms to integrate with Flipkart Smart.
Note - Flipkart Smart is getting discontinued from 1st August 2022.

b. Seller Fulfillment (Smart 3.0): Based on the performance of the Seller and respective listings, Flipkart awards F-Assured status to these automatically to the listings, while in Seller Fulfillment model. This model works on the same Seller Fulfillment APIs and is integrated with Assure.
