The company plans to use the funds to launch its India sales channel and its international sales channel.

In a statement, Flipkarr said it will be focused on “providing affordable and innovative products in India through a diverse range of channels.”

It aims to be the first of its kind, as it will offer “a curated product experience for customers of all ages.”
Flipkaia aims to have a mobile platform that is a mix of Flipkarts, Flipka, Flipko and Flipkabas apps.
The app is expected to launch in the next three months.
Flipkarma’s global presence will be powered by Flipkaro, a subsidiary of Flipka.
