Report: Wal-Mart opens website for Indian small retailers

New Delhi, India – Wal-Mart Stores In. has reportedly opened an e-commerce site to serve the small retailers that shop at its members-only cash-and-carry stores in India. According to Bloomberg, Wal-Mart is piloting the site for small retailers located in the cities of Hyderabad and Lucknow, with full rollout across India planned in January 2015.

Cash-and-carry stores in India only serve small retailers, who must have special tax documents to purchase goods at them. Regular consumers cannot shop at Indian cash-and-carry stores. Wal-Mart is aiming the site at retailers located more than 12 miles from the nearest cash-and-carry store, and seeks to have 10% of all cash-and-carry purchases executed online after full nationwide rollout.
